This post goes out to all of you who celebrate or are celebrated on Mother’s Day. I hope that you have a peaceful day filled with love, laughter and hugs. I know we’re all on different paths, but I want you to know that I see you. I celebrate you. And I’m sending you a hug because I’m a hugger and sometimes we just need a hug.
Being a Mom isn’t easy. For as many books as we may have read, we’ll never do this very important job perfectly, no matter how hard we’ve tried. We’ll put our hearts and souls into doing our very best, but remember. We’re human. We make mistakes. We get tired and frustrated and sad. But what I’ve seen from all the Moms I know is that we keep getting back up. We may fall down, but we try again. And we’re so critical of ourselves when things don’t go well for us, for the kids, for our lives. And we don’t have to be.
But then again, we get back up. You can’t hold us down for long because in our minds and hearts, we’re responsible for our kids and we want them to have the best we can give to them and in giving them the best of ourselves, we hope to role model tenacity, resilience, love.
So today, may all the Moms unite and be grateful for what and who we have in this very moment. Count your blessings. Reach out to others who may need a little extra love today. Sometimes motherhood needs a village of friendship to make it through the day.
