“There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.” —Jill Churchill
As I sit here thinking about what I want to say to all the moms out there, it got me thinking about my mother. You see, we don’t fully understand the sacrifice mothers go through for their kids, and their families, until we become mothers.
Over the years, I have noticed so many moms that don’t give them selfs enough credits for all the things they do for their family, so this is my way of showing some love and appreciation for all the moms out there.
1.To The Working Moms.
It doesn’t matter if you are working because you love your job, or maybe you are forced to work to help support your family, whatever the case is, I want you to know that there is no reason for feeling guilty. I know that you are doing everything you can for your family, and you need to give yourself a break. It is not easy balancing work life and family life. And at the same time trying not to lose yourself in the process. All working moms can relate. Pat yourself on the beck, because you deserve it. You are still an amazing and loving mom to your kids, and you should never forget it.
2.To The Stay-at-Home Moms
I know there are the days you count minutes until bedtime, so that can finally have a few minutes of peace. I understand it’s not easy. I am a stay-at-home mom and get it. We all need time off and time to ourselves. It doesn’t mean you love your kids any less. So give your self some credits for all the things you do during the day for you for kids and your family, because by doing them you are showing them how much they mean to you, and how much you love them.
3.To The Single moms.
It’s not easy raising kids, let alone raising them alone. It’s hard when you don’t have that significant others to help you through it, and somehow you manage to do it. And I applaud you for it. You are a real-life superhero your kids, even if you don’t see it, you are, and you should never forget it.
4.To The Future Momos.
I know you are terrified of whats o come, you are questioning yourself whether or not you can do it, and will you be a good mom to your child. And I need you to stop doing that because everything is going to be just fine. You are going to be an amazing mom, and you don’t need to worry so much.
5.To The Grieving Moms
The grieving mother, my heart aches for you. Not just for today but every day for the rest of your life. You have experienced indescribable pain. You’ve shed tears that I wish no one would ever have to shed. You’ve said goodbye to a child, your child. Please know. I am here for you. You are beautiful and strong. Please know that I care about you. I love you.
6.To The Stepmoms
I know the sacrifices you made. Juggling kids, ex-wives, and husbands can be a lot to handle. You did it with grace and humility. And for that, I applaud you. You are a rockstar for crying out loud! It does not matter what anyone says. Stepmoms are moms too. And they are also your kids because you are raising them together.
And finally, to all moms everywhere, I want to say thank you, for all the little things they do every single day, you are all rock stars and such an inspiration.
