Oh Mother’s Day. You were intended to be a joyous holiday, one to honor moms and everything that encompasses motherhood. But hidden in your good intention are trigger points, many…many…trigger points.
To the mom who celebrates with a piece of her heart in heaven
To the woman who yearns and prays numerous times a day to become a mommy
To the little girls and grown women who miss their mamas and would do anything to be able to celebrate with them…..together one more time
To the single moms who battle every day for your kids and for you
To the new moms, working moms, stay at home moms, moms to toddlers, teenagers, and grown children, to mom swho battle mom guilt, who compete with Pinterest mom, who are Pinterest moms, who scream at their kids, and then cry when they are sleeping so sweetly
I mean come on…who knew one little three letter word that is the same front or back could engulf so many emotions. Maybe it is because motherhood is a dream but also oh so very trying at times.
If there was a job description for motherhood it may read:
Happy Mother’s Day from our family to yours
