In honour of Mother’s Day, I’ve got a few mother’s together to write an honest piece on what a mother’s love is/means to them. A mother’s love, in short, cannot be put in words because in all honesty, it’s indescribable. And no one will understand a mother’s love until they too become a mother, I know I didn’t. And even now, if you ask me what a mother’s love is, I’d struggle to put it in words. I reached out to some mothers on Twitter and these wonderful super humans (because that is what we are) have been able to describe what a mother’s love means to them in just a few words (I know how hard that must have been!)
A mother’s love. A mother’s love is out of this world, it’s unexplainable and it’s one you wont really come close to understanding until you become a mother yourself.
A mother’s love is your heart skipping a beat the moment you are handed your gift from God in your delivery room.
A mother’s love is when you are no longer the main focus in your life rather its your child’s, future, well-being, and happiness that is your top priority.
A mother’s love is that special and unconditional feeling you have for your child, to love and to protect your child.
A mothers love is being there for your child through thick and thin, being their security whilst teaching them to be the best people they can be.
A mothers love is putting your child before anything else in this world.
A mother’s love is sacrificing so much without any regrets.
A mother’s love is something I could talk about for hours but it will never end because a mothers love is like no other, it is endless.
Happy Mothers Day to each & every one of you.

I’m laying here in bed and it’s 1.22am, I can’t fall asleep. My husband and baby, who is 9 months today are silently snoring but I can’t seem to drift off because tonight is the first night my son is sleeping in his cot since we took him out at 4 months and started co-sleeping (big mistake). I miss him sleeping next to me in his cradle pose and with my arm wrapped around him, we sleep facing each other. The crazy thing about it is that I never wanted to have kids. I was happy just being with my husband. Even when I was single, I was happy being alone, never saw a child in my future.
I got pregnant exactly a week after my husband asked me to marry him and for me I had to have this child even if it was never my plan. Now when I look at him, I can’t believe I was willing to pass on this feeling. This intense gut wrenching feeling that makes you feel like you’re going to burst, a feeling that is so magical and truly indescribable until you have looked into your baby’s eyes and he looks right back at you and you feel it deep down in your soul, “I can’t live without you, I don’t want to live without you. I have only had you for a few months but I can no longer do this life without you.”
I look at my mother differently now, so this is what she felt/feels for me… we are a chain of unconditional love, generation to generation. I get it now, a child is a gift from God. My life now truly has meaning.

You see when I say mother’s are super humans, I mean it, Ms Tammy has got her own natural and organic skincare brand, be sure to check out her brand BQLONDON
A mother’s love is the ability to love your tiny human/s unconditionally. It’s waking up every two hours when you become a mother, doing a night feed and changing smelly nappies on the hard shoulder of the M25. A mother’s love is the heart of the family. Being a mother comes with different obstacles daily, however I strongly believe mother’s are built to be strong, nurturing superwomen. Mums’ shower their families with love, time, care and attention always. In a nutshell homes thrive best with mother’s holding things together. Being a loving mother and being loved by your mother are two very special things.

When I decided to do this Mother’s Day special, I didn’t have a specific target for mum bloggers or mumpreneurs but here are three wonderful ladies who are mothers, career women, nurturers, writers… which are all 24/7 jobs. And they are doing the damn thing! I mean, mothers deserve this day for how hard they work in every area of their lives. A mother’s love? A mother’s love is sacrifice. We sacrifice everything and more to make sure our children and our families get the BEST of us. That is a mother’s love.
Thank you to the ladies who contributed to this piece, may all your future walks in life continue to prosper ?
Now let’s go out and celebrate ourselves, happy Mother’s Day to you all!
