What do you love most about motherhood? 160 characters or less From Ariane- She is the love of my life. I have seen so many great and not so greats things because of her and I admire the strength she’s continually had through any and all adversities. We recently lost the foundation to our family, my grandad, her dad, and that hit us all hard. But in spite of our loss my mother remained strong for ALL of us. It was a sight to see. She’s very inspiring with the kindest heart any woman could have. She’s my everything. I’d be lost without her guidance. I hope to always make her as proud as she’s made me.
