Being a Mom quotes are great to read and reflect about, whether you are relating in your role as a mom or enjoying the sentiments with thoughts of your own mom.

I have been a mom for thirty-six years and a grand mom for five years. I’ve always said that motherhood may be the hardest job you’ll ever have (because you have more roles than in any single job I’ve ever known), but also the most rewarding.

The holiday Mother’s Day may come once a year, but truth be told once you become a mom, every day is mother’s day.

MOMS

Reading quotes in general is thought provoking and emotion driven, and mom quotes are especially heartfelt, full of love and even magical.

In my personal experience, being a mom is absolutely transformational. I may be a total introvert in most areas of my life, and yet can transform into an extrovert as a mom.

When you realize the unique experience of being someone else’s ‘everything’ you immediately rise to the occasion, and somehow gain the confidence to say or do what is needed for that little person who is dependent on you.

GRAND MOM

This holds true for being a grand mom too. I love my five grandbabies who are five years and under as though they are my own; and treasure a very special bond with each of them. They give the same unconditional love and affection that every mom holds so close to her heart.

Being a Mom quotes are lovely to read and ponder, but they also may be filled with pressure. Moms have been known to second guess themselves (just sayin).

MOM THOUGHTS

Am I living up to my potential as a mom?

Are my kids feeling my love?

Am I doing the right thing?

Am I doing enough?

Love that quote! Will my child remember ME that way?

I hope I’m a good mom.

Being a mom is a blessing, a pleasure, humorous, loving, and certainly challenging. I’ve tried to capture these in the quotes below.

Today, let’s put the big questions or the pressure aside, and simple enjoy and reflect on some Being a Mom quotes.

Motherhood is messy. And challenging. And crazy. And sleepless. And giving. And still unbelievably beautiful. ~Rachel Martin

Oh my, isn’t that just true?

I experience motherhood as selfless, but in a good way. I don’t see it as losing anything or sacrificing things.

When I read Being a Mom quotes, it is equal parts as a mom and then thinking in terms of my own mom who I lost two years ago and miss every day.

We mothered very different in a lot of ways and also matched up in many ways.

One of the valuable lessons I learned from her is that we moms try our best even if we aren’t always at our best. It’s the love and the commitment and the showing up that counts.

Being a mom, and a grandmom, are two very important roles in my life. I will feel forever blessed to be a mom.

“You don’t need another Human Being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul, but cracks to put their love into, is the most calming thing In this World.” ~Emery Allen
