being a parent - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Being a parent changes you. You are blessed with a baby, a sacred gift, a sacred duty, to raise them with love and protect them, yet give them their freedom when the time is right. Every blessing is a curse. You must accept that to love them is to sacrifice for them in whatever ways are necessary.
My life has been defined by womanhood and by motherhood. Feeling a new person grow within you and raising them to become an independent person is the greatest privilege and the greatest challenge. It weaves with my other accomplishments to form whom I have become. Being a parent should be that way, not an additional thing or an "add on" but a central theme that other passions revolve around.
