Being "Mama"

I read this quote a few weeks ago here. I love the honesty. The acknowledgment of sacrifice without the feeling of martyrdom.

What can I expect from becoming a mother? Disappointment. Frustration. Surprise. Joy. Love. Love. Love. Do I have what it takes? Sometimes yes, so much so that you will astound yourself. And sometimes no, this job will ask for more than you can give. What does it cost? All of you. And you will never regret it.
Motherhood shows me the best and the worst of myself. It brings me to my knees, with moments of awe and moments of emotional weakness. And it does take all of you. I think it always will. And that is the beauty.
