As I asked a friend what being a mother means to her,
she answered me right away,
“Being a mom to
me means that now I will always be a mom first and a wife second.”
It took me a while to realize what she said. It was a cliché, so I didn’t think much about it. Then it hit me… “What is my greatest priority over everything around me?” What she said was indeed true.
Children. They are our greatest priority. For a mom like me, I think I won’t be able to sleep soundly at night if I missed out doing something for my children. No matter how busy I am, I will stop to attend to their needs. And even in the middle of my slumber, I will wake up right away, and go to their bed once they call out my name.
I am doing this out of love.
And wife second.
I’m sure their dad will understand.
