This is for the mom hiding in her bathroom, needing peace for just one minute, as the tears roll down her cheeks..spending a little extra time to regroup.
To the mom who is so tired she feels like she can't function anymore and would do just about anything to lay down and rest...
To the mom crying on the couch after she raising her voice at her kids for something little and is now feeling guilty and like she is unworthy…with such limited patience...
To the mom that is trying desperately to put those old jeans on because all she wants is to look in the mirror and feel good about herself…
To the mom that doesn’t want to leave the house because life is just too much to handle...
To the mom that is calling out for pizza again because dinner just didn’t happen the way she wanted it to…
To the mom that feels alone, whether in a room by herself or standing in a crowd...
You are enough.
You are important.
You are worthy.
This is a phase of life for us. It may seem impossible, and that life is really really hard, challenging, & crazy!
In the end it will all be worth it. But for now it’s hard. It's hard for so many of us in many different ways. We don't always talk about it, but it's hard and it's not just you. You are NOT alone.
You are enough.
You are doing the best you can.
Those little eyes that look up at you - they think you are perfect. They think you are more than enough.
Those little hands that reach out to hold you - they think you are the strongest. They think you can conquer the world.
Those little mouths eating the food you gave them - they think that you are the best because their bellies are full.
Those little hearts that reach out to touch yours - they don’t want anything more. They just want you.
Because you are enough. You are more than enough, mama.
You. Are. A. Blessing.
You. Are. Amazing.
Chin up mom, tomorrow is a new day!
