Mommy blogger Jennifer Quinn once wrote, "Until one becomes a mother, no one can ever tell you what it will feel like to love someone else so deeply and profoundly that you will rejoice when they rejoice, ache when they ache, feel what they feel even, without ever speaking a word."
If you're a mother, you understand this is true. Those deep feelings can't be understood by anyone else.
Recently, a community of women tried to describe the intimate feelings of motherhood. Their descriptions were beautiful. See if you can relate.
"You find more love to give than you ever imagined."
"There is nothing closer than a mom and her kids. And even after [they are old enough to care for themselves] they are still her babies. No one comes between her and those kids!"
"I'll never ever forget the moment of extreme joy when... [I] held my daughter to breast feed her for first time. It's an unforgettable memory. I felt God's love as I was pouring my love to her little body."
"A mother is only as happy as her saddest child."
"Someday, when my son's all grown up, I still want to be that person he calls first when he's got something too big for him to handle, or when he's confused or had his heart broken or when he's got good news or just happy."
