Jackie Forster shared her tough journey through motherhood and she also wrote a heartfelt message for her children.
KAMI learned that she took to Instagram to share a lengthy post of her sentiments as a mother on Sunday, May 13.
Jackie started her post by being honest that it was indeed a tough journey for her when it comes to motherhood. Being a mother at the age of 16 didn't help at all. It was a really a tough call for Jackie and now at the age of 39, she feels her maturity helped her embrace motherhood and become the better version of herself.
"My journey through motherhood hasn’t been easy. I started at 16 and feel like I’m coming full circle early at 39. From losing myself before I could even grow up, to knowing who I am and what I am really truly capable of. Today I find myself facing the most fulfilling and yet challenging times.
"I suddenly have two grown men in my life but because the Lord has equipped me to face anything that comes my way.. I’m telling those who still want to put me down or stand in my way to make sure you bring it!"
She also emphasized her great love for her children will always be unconditional and how she would do everything in her power to protect, nurture, and provide for them.
"I want all of my children to know with every ounce of their being that for as long as I am alive I will be here to make sure they are protected and nurtured and provided for, guided and understood and Respected but most importantly that they are UNCONDITIONALLY LOVED .
"That means I love you regardless of what any one says or makes you do, I love you regardless of whether you do what I say or do, I love you even when you make mistakes, I love you even when you say hurtful things, I love you even if you do what we said you shouldn’t, i love you even when you aren’t honest with me, I love you even if you smell bad, i love you even if you don’t say it to me, I love you even if you forget about me, I love you even more- when you don’t love yourself!!! I love you.
"You will all be mamas babies even when the day comes that that I can no longer be by your side. I will never stop loving you! Never. Motherhood is tough, but I am tougher! I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for all of my children and the strength and love from our Lord!
"I’m grateful I get to be me and the mother I want to be with my husband who has helped nurture the lioness in me.
"#HappyMothersDay to the awesome imperfect women in my life I love you Lola Dorothy and @lucille030257 @farrahforsterpermanentmakeup and to all mothers staying strong every day and always forgiving themselves for not always getting it right!!! If God is for us, who can be against us???? #myriches"
