Motherhood Should Be an Olympic Sport

Has the Olympic bug bit you, yet? It's the only prime time television we've been watching at our house, catching the news at 12:00 AM, and yawning our way through the next day. Those athletes are amazing to watch and their back-stories are even more inspiring. Dedication, sacrifice, hard work, determination, and leadership: sounds a little bit like motherhood, no?

Dedication
Requires no explanation because there is no end to what a mama will do for her family.

Sacrifice
How many of us forgo sleep, adult conversation, careers, pampering, basic grooming, for the ones we love so much?

Hard Work
The work is hard, the rewards are infinite. The sweat and tears are all worth it because the joys are immeasurable and undefinable.

Determination
Every day starts a new day to mold and shape a future citizen of the world that is good, productive, independent and respectful. There will never be a more important job for the world's future.

Leadership
We are our family brood's role model. Being watched 24/7 by young eyes is a lot of pressure. Preparing tomorrow's rainmakers is only successful if we make the rain ourselves, first.

To every mother out there that relates to the Olympic athlete, congratulations! You just won a gold medal in Motherhood. (Hear the National Anthem playing in the background just for you?)


My apologies to LOVD's e-mail subscribers. For some odd and strange reason, Feedburner did not send out Wednesday's post until 3:26 AM this morning. I have no explanation for this oddity. In case you missed it, here's a link to yesterday's post, click here.

Hey, guys, Fatherhood Olympics could be substituted. Let's just call it Parenthood Olympics.
