Who are you?

You're not just a mother...
Who are you?  To your children, you are their mother.  But your identity is not only that of a mother.  You might also be a wife, daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter, cousin, friend.  In your quest to be the best mother possible, don't forget those other roles.  Yes, your children need you and depend on you for their upbringing and loving care and it is your responsibility and yours alone to be the mother to your children but to be a balanced person, you can't neglect the other roles that are yours.  It can be so easy to put aside the relationships you have with your husband, other family members and even yourself as you focus all your energy on your children.  But that's not best for them or you.  You will be a happier person, a better wife and mother and a more rounded individual if you make time for the other things that are important in your life.
