It doesn't seem like enough to have just one day to celebrate all of the lovely mothers out there.
I could sit here and tell you multiple stories that would send chills down your body of the strength I have witnessed in mothers I have known all to protect their child.
It could bring me to my knees thinking of all of the challenges mothers have gone through and what we would do for our children.
Being a mother is the most difficult job any of us will ever have.
There is no handbook, no book, nothing we can do to prepare ourselves for what mothers have to endure and take on.
When we were little we dreamed of having a family and being a mother, with no clue of how difficult and how rewarding it will be.
Especially now with social media, it can always feel like we're doing it wrong. Like we are failing as a mother.
If you follow me on instastories, you saw a little glimpse of this yesterday. I posted some fun snippets of me and the kids dancing around in the morning. And while that's fun and cute, please remember, when my 1 year old is screaming at the top of his lungs because he can't play with scissors, or my 4 year old is having a meltdown because she cant have ice cream off the ice cream truck 5 minutes before dinner, I would never video tape that. One, you don't want to see that, as you all probably see enough of that in your own home! And two, it would be plain cruel to do so.
So please, stop thinking that other mothers don't ever lose it. That they don't ever yell, or they don't ever make mistakes as a mom.
Everyone is human, and we are all perfectly imperfect.
Moms, I raise my coffee mug to all of you. Mommin' ain't easy, and all of you are doing incredibly amazing things out there!
