Recently my husband was out of town for 10 days and by the 3rd day of single mommyhood I was worn out. How about you? My friend Paula’s husband is away most days of the week for work and she still manages to homeschool 5 kids, take them to all their activities and run her home business successfully. WOW. I can barely get a trip to the grocery store in with only 2 kids without feeling overwhelmed. Mommyhood is hard and for me it is a journey of learning and growing. I admire so many moms who do this and do it well.
My sister and brother in law refused to put their daughter in day care so more than a decade they worked opposite shifts so one of them could be home with their daughter at all times… Can you imagine the years of little to know sleep? My friend Shannon has a family of 10 she manages really well. For several years her husband had to live and work in NYC while the rest of the family lived in Texas. She says some days it was all she could do to get the kids fed.
Mom – You Are Awesome, You Are Enough!!!
We all know moms who are amazing. Moms who spouses are away in the military, moms who love on their children, moms who are raising other people’s children. There are so many examples out there. But I am here to tell you that YOU ARE AMAZING TOO. Sometimes I, and maybe you too, compare ourselves to SO and SO MOM:
“She is a SUPER MOM”“She does this and this and this really well”“Why Can’t I be like that mom”
S.T.O.P. STOP, STOP! comparing yourself, putting yourself down, or feeling guilty because of what you don’t do for your kids. So to honor you and let you know that YOU ARE ENOUGH. I would like to bless you with a special gift I have put together for mommas: in the Mom, You Are Enough Mother’s Day Giveaway
