Great moms make dreams come true

In times like these, many, if not most, things in life sometimes just feel absolutely unatainable. Too hard. Make us feel like we can't or we aren't good enough. But with a great mom, anything is truly possible. When I saw this video of this Peruvian marathoner qualifying for the London Olympics and her mother that encourged her to go for her dreams, I thought of two things. One, I thought of my mom, mi mamacita hermosa, and ALL the times and ways she has supported me, and now me and my family. My second thought was, I hope I can be a mother like my mom and this Peruvian woman. To my girl, K, and to my future child(ren). To see my child's potential, whether it be running, music, swimming, comedy, whatever, that I see their potential and support them, nuture them, pray for them, that they can grow in touch their gift and use it. This is the kind of mother I want to be.

This is the beauty of motherhood.
