My mom is a warrior

Mothers are warriors. They are. I went to bed last night feeling miserable with the flu, but despite my fever and achy body, I had no problem getting up to feed my little man. I was amazed how I was able to function in such a miserable state. Motherhood comes with a whole new level of strength that you didn't even realize you had.  Really how amazing are woman?  I lay in bed (too hot to sleep) reflecting on how strong mothers are and how so often their strength and sacrifice goes unnoticed. I thought about my mom. My mom is a warrior. I have watched her endure many hardships and watched her transform into a better person through her endurance. She has taught me that through persistence and faith- you can make anything happen. I love you mom. Thank you for waking up in the middle of the night to feed me when I was a baby- even on days you didn't feel well. Those small things are taken for granted until one day you are doing it for your own little one. Thank you. I love you.
