A Tribute to Mother’s Day
I’m so excited for this Tribute to Mother’s Day! How powerful three little letters put together can be. Mom.
There’s something so special about a mom. Besides the fact that they gave birth to us and were the first ones to love us, unconditionally.
When I think about Mother’s day, I not only think about my mom & my mother-in-law. I also think about every other mom who has shaped me in one way or another – to be the mother I am today and the mother I still want to become.
There’s so many of you over the course of the past 11 years! When my first was born, I can think of several very important women who truly taught me so much when I had no clue what I was doing. I think of Melanie giving me a book that helped me get my infant to sleep through the night. I used it again 9 years later on my 2nd son.
The saying is true in motherhood – it really does takes a village. I am so grateful for the “villagers” who have helped guide, teach and cheer me on along the way. I’m so blessed that I’m not on this journey without you.
So many mother’s so many unique stories.
I also think about the moms who are going through a particularly difficult season. Perhaps, she doesn’t feel appreciated or isn’t getting recognition. Maybe she is just overwhelmed, tired and is losing her drive to go on each day. (We’ve all been there!)
There’s the mama who’s juggling multiples or has 3, 4, 5, 6 kids in the house. The single parenting mama. The mama’s who have babies with special needs and are learning to adapt.
There’s the mama whose spouse is on deployment. The mama who got a new diagnosis. The dear mama who has lost her child.
I love this line from the song “Most people are good” by Luke Bryan it says:
“And most mamas oughta qualify for sainthood”
That one little line sums up everything for all us mama’s. We go through so much love, pain, confusion, regret, prayers, tears, joy, smiles, laughter, exhaustion and selflessness. I agree Luke, most mamas oughta qualify for sainthood!
This year, I can’t help but want to do something for all the other mama’s who have affected me along the way. Who says Mother’s day is restricted to only celebrating your mom!?
Let’s love on all the mama’s in our lives!
One great way to do that is to mail a card for Mother’s Day to express that gratitude or to just cheer another mama on!
To all the mama’s reading this, Happy Mother’s Day!! 🙂
