You are beautiful, courageous, fantastic, miracle workers and so much more! You are priceless no matter what anyone says and you cannot be replaced! Your job is SO important and I salute you!
Thank you for all you have done and all that you do. For the thankless hours of work, worry, cooking, cleaning, praying, and making sure your children are taken care of. For getting up and starting a new day even though you may have felt that you failed yesterday. For continuing to try and never giving up on God’s children!
For protecting your children and then believing in them enough to allow them to spread their wings and learn life’s lessons on their own. Thank you for teaching them to survive. To thrive despite the madness. Even during the times when they say they hate you, thank you for loving them endlessly. Thank you for being a great example of unconditional love, sacrifice, and God like grace. Thank you moms for being you!
There is no ‘perfect’ mom but God made you just for your children! Whatever you need is already in you or will be built within you along the way. Enjoy learning the new lessons that having children bring, for one day your children will pass these lessons down to their own children. Don’t beat yourself up for mistakes, build yourself up and show your children how to do the same. Let them know you are ‘human’ and they will know that it is ok to be human as well. Apologize to your children if you make a mistake and uplift them on the tough days. They need it just like you do!
