It’s amazing how much you learn about yourself once you become a parent. You discover how capable you are, how much you’re willing to sacrifice, and your ability to love unconditionally. My 3 children have taught me the value of each of these.
I often hear people coin the phrase “supermum” when they see a mother doing a exceptional job at raising their children. I have been called that several times before. But for me, it’s not about what I am but what my children are to me.
All three of my children have special needs; one of which is a speech delay. Most of my time is spent attending appointments; absorbing the information given to me and implementing the strategies at home. Some days are harder than others, but I continue to persevere because I would do anything for my children.
The love for my children has no boundaries. It is unconditional. I can feel it in my heart when I’m rushing to appointments, when I’m patient with them, when I’m enunciating words to help them understand. The extent of my unconditional love is clear when I am willing to do absolutely anything to ensure my children have a better future.
