INSIDE A MOTHER’S HEART….
there is joy and there is happiness.
there is love and there is mercy.
there are questions and solutions.
there is amazement and there is encouragement.
there are ideas and there is support.
there is power and there is perseverance.
there is success and there is pride.
there is wisdom and there is hope.
there is laughter and there is peace.
there is also frustration and there is desperation.
there is also guilt and there is anger.
there is also hurt and there is doubt.
there are also worries and tears.
there are also judgment and misunderstanding.
there is also failure and there is brokenness.
there is loneliness and there is selfishness.
We are Mommies. We are humans. We make mistakes. We are not perfect. We try. We fail. We try again. We do our best. Sometimes things work. Sometimes it doesn’t. We are humans. We want help. We don’t want help. We are strong. But we are also weak. It’s confusing. It’s part of parenthood.
We aren’t superheroes. No. We don’t need to save the world. That is not our job. We are normal human beings. We are mamas. We love our offspring, no matter how we feel. We are there for them, no matter how we feel. We take care of them, no matter how we feel. We teach them the good things in life, no matter how we feel. We help them, no matter how we feel. We discipline them, no matter how we feel. And that is our job.
Dear Mama, You are doing a great job. Don’t give up, even when it gets tough. Don’t give up, they look up to you and they love you (no matter how you feel).
