Strength Of A Mother

Strength Of A Mother

People always talk about a mother’s love. My mom gave birth to me, raised me, disciplined me and helped shape me into the person I am today. My mom and I always had a special bond brought together by baseball. Growing up, she was at every practice and game she could make it to from the time I was 4 years old until I was 18 and a senior in high school.

My mom took on a bigger role in my life than she probably should have when my dad moved away. She took over two roles in my life and helped shape me into who I am today. The strength that my mom had during my younger days was undeniable, especially with 4 kids to raise. She made sure that we always had what we needed, even if it was 2 pairs of shoes and 2 pairs of baseball cleats within 2 months since my feet grew like weeds. Looking back on those years now I realize just how big of an impact she had on my life.

Whenever anything happens, my mom is the first person I think of or want to tell. When we found out Erica was pregnant with Nellie-Anne I instantly thought of my mom. For me, emotions and expressing them can be hard but my mom is the one person I can’t hold back with. She has been the one constant in my life that has steadied the ship whenever it was necessary.

Now, looking at Erica I can see that same motherly presence in Nellie’s life. No matter what our little girl needs Erica is ready and willing to do it, even if that meant laying in a hospital bed for 7 weeks. Nellie is now 1-month-old and Erica has been amazing with all that she does for our girl. Getting up every 3 hours to make sure Nellie has enough to eat and going to the hospital multiple times a day. Her motherly instincts are amazing to watch in action! Between Erica and my mom, I have 2 amazing women in my life who make me want to be a better person for my family. Nellie is lucky to have Erica as her mom and I can not wait to see their special bond grow as she does.
