What is it that you love the most about being a mom - the icing on the cake, the spark that lights your candle?  I'm guessing it's not changing diapers or dealing with big emotions.  We wanted to know what that one rewarding thing was from each of our Mighty Mamas.  Their answers were similar but also unique.

We asked our Mighty Mamas to share their thoughts and here is what they said.


"The unconditional love of a one-track child's mind. Isn't it sort of crazy how they can go from telling you, "You're not my friend no more!" to "Mumma, I need a hug." all within three minutes?! But I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love that I am THAT person for him, the person he will unload on because he feels most comfortable and the person he will love in every little way he knows how."

Vivianna, Mom to one, Boss Mom

"Without a doubt, the unconditional love from my kids. It is such a pure love. Their smiles, hugs and kisses can always make me smile."

Stephanie, Mom to two, Blogger and Social Worker

"Loving someone so much you would do anything for them. You always hear your parents tell you that but you never understand until you have your own children. It is the best feeling to see her light up when she sees me and to know that even though I am not perfect she loves me so much still."

Michelle, Mom to one, Dental Hygienist

"We call it "the click." When we have been working through a particularly difficult skill or behavior with our kids, and then all of a sudden it clicks. They mastered the potty, falling asleep on her own, reading, subtraction, mastering a difficult piano piece, holding the door open for someone without be asked, I could cry! I love "the click""

Kristen, Mom to three, Stay at Home Mom and Blogger

"I love that I have this person - that is my person. I have felt a connection with Aurora since the day I knew I was pregnant. I knew exactly what her personality would be like - and that we would just get each other. I love how she will give me a half smile and look at me with her eyes - my eyes - and hold on to me so tight. I love that she has my feet and hands - and that she loves so much. She is amazing - and I love that I made her. I love that I get to watch her grow, and become a woman. To name one thing would be too little because I am in love with being a mom. The good, the bad, and the ugly."

Annie, Mom to one, Government Worker Bee

"I feel like there are so many things that are rewarding when it comes to being a mom. You’re caring for another human and nurturing them to be their own individual. Right now my oldest son is beginning to structure sentences to describe or ask for things. It feels amazing to know that he is growing beautifully and seems so happy and that I was a major part of it."

Dee, Mom to two, Mother/Student/Legal Industry

"The most rewarding thing is to see that look of sheer happiness and joy on my child’s face when I do something as simple as fix a toy or take a couple of pieces of Lego apart. Just making things right in his world means everything."

Cathy, Mom to one, Finance/Administration

"I really think some of the most rewarding aspects of being a mom are the small things. Late night cuddles on the couch with your littles, the wrap-around-your-neck super tight hugs, the tiny spoken, 'I love you.' Seeing your child accomplish something on their own, or the joy in their face when they are just living life to the fullest. I can't pick just one thing, but basically all of the little moments that make your heart melt are the most rewarding for me."

Cassie, Mom to two, Orthodontic Lab Technician/Blogger

"Right now, I think it's being part of something bigger, knowing that I am not alone in this journey.

I know that as my family grows, I think seeing the character traits develop in my children and seeing them grow in their relationship with Christ and experience His love--that will be the most rewarding. Knowing that I had/have the privilege to guide my kids into God's open arms is almost unimaginable."

Gloryanna, Mom to one, Teacher turned Stay at Home Mother

"The hugs. The kisses. The words "I love you"."

Kathy, Mom to four, Veterinary Nurse
