To The Moms

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mothers, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence mothers have in society. Since today is Mother’s Day and we are a place for women and mothers, it only seems fitting we write something today.

To the single moms. The stepmoms. The moms that never had a chance to meet their baby. The moms that only held their babies for a short time. The moms that doubt themselves. The moms that feel like a failure. The moms that struggle to hold it all together. The moms that are just doing the best they can. To all the moms. This one’s for you….

Look at yourself. You’re a freaking rockstar. You are the glue that holds it all together. Even when you’re a mess, the house is a mess, everything’s a mess, all your kids see is you. The you that loves them unconditionally. The you that shows compassion even though all you want to do is scream. The you that is their safe place from all that is scary about the world. All they see is you. Nothing else matters to them. The smile on their face is because of you. The food in their belly is because of you. The warm safe bed they sleep in at night is because of you. All they see is you. The beautiful, imperfect, hardworking, loving you that gives them everything and asks for nothing in return.

Motherhood is a journey of ups and downs, peaks and valleys. Some days are harder than others. Everything is a learning experience. Every day brings something new. No one knows what the hell they’re doing. We’re all imperfect moms doing the best we can at every turn. So stop doubting yourself. Stop feeling less than because Susan feeds her kids organic, while yours had their second happy meal this week. Everything you have done and are doing is exactly what your kids need. You are a phenomenal mom, don’t ever forget that. Happy Mother’s Day.
