In a Mother’s Day post, model mom Gisele Bündchen wrote a new message on her official website thanking her mother Vânia for encouraging her to find her own way. The 29-year-old mother of Benjamin, 5 months, and stepson Jack, 2 1/2, also urges new moms to breastfeed, calling it “Nature’s blessing.”
I’ve always believed that to be a mom is the greatest responsibility a woman could have in her life. I’ve noticed a lot of meaningful changes in my life taking place together with a huge transformation of my priorities. The most important thing to me is to be the best mom ever to my children. I want to love them, to communicate with them, to be patient and teach them all I know. I have no doubt that becoming a mom has been the most rewarding experience in my life. I can say for a fact that I knew unconditional love.
I’ve been blessed with a loving mother who understood we were all unique human beings and we all had our paths to follow. Once she told me “we love you and we’ve raised you the best we could, but you don’t belong to us, you belong to the world, you’ll have to find your own way”.
My mother has been a model to me and I’ll always be grateful to her for that. Thank you, Mom!
On this Mother’s Day I’d also like to talk about a very important issue, which is breastfeeding. It’s essential for the newborn and creates a bond between mother and her child. It’s a unique moment when the body changes to nurture; it’s the Nature’s blessing! Breastfeeding, mainly the first days, poses some challenges, but the reward is sublime. In addition to having all the proteins, fats, and vitamins the baby needs, breastfeeding is an act of love and affection.
It would be great if all the mothers could experience the breastfeeding.
Therefore, on this date, May 9th, I want to wish all the mothers in the world a very special day and may we all be the best we can to our children, who, in turn, will show us their infinite love and brighten every day of our life with laughs (and many sleepless nights as well).
Happy Mother’s Day
Love and light”
