Mother’s Day is a time to honor the most important women in our lives. It’s also a time to feel grateful for the ultimate privilege of being a mother.
One of the most incredible gifts of motherhood is watching your children’s personalities form. Witnessing your babies develop their own sense of self is the greatest gift. I have two kids who inspire me daily, in surprisingly different ways.
My daughter has a very strong will. She is incredibly creative and loves to express herself through fashion. I see much of myself in her as I watch her make jewelry out of beads, paper, wire… or anything else she can get her hands on. I can’t wait for the day she can translate her designs to metalwork. She is fearless and inspires me to be a strong role model on her behalf.
My son is a truly kind soul. His sweet interactions with his friends and his sister are a consistent reminder to put more kindness into the world. He loves to make order out of chaos, showcasing an analytical mind that I am in awe of, but he mostly inspires me with his genuinely happy and joyfulnature.
I can’t help but feel grateful for the chance to reflect on my children and also all of the wonderful mothers in my life on this day. Wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Colby June.
