It's pretty bonkers how moms get taken for granted. No two family dynamics are exactly alike, but generally and broadly speaking, moms rule the world. They keep it all from falling apart, anyway. And then there's the whole bringing-life-into-the-world thing.
You go, moms.
From the up-all-nighters to the waking before the sun risers. You've changed diapers and conquered board rooms all on the same day. You're a beast in the gym and a Saint at home. You taught us kindness and courage and wisdom and patience and dreaming. You show us what it means to serve the community and how to be a good neighbor. You poured more into others when you hardly had enough gas in the tank for yourself. You're beautiful and bad@$&. You're a silent guardian and advocate for all who enter your home.
You go, moms.
You juggle groceries and games, dinners and bedtimes. You've conquered runny noses and nasty germs. You've asked more of us when we didn't believe we could do it. You reminded us we'd be okay even if things weren't. You opened our eyes to the possibility of life, and you made it look so easy. You're a natural. You're a pro. It's more than instinct - you're art.
So here's to you and reminding you that you're seen. Here's to saying thanks. Here's to saying you're perfect just the way you are and that you're getting even more incredible with time.
We cherish your impact on our family, we value your friendship, we appreciate the times you said no (and the times you said yes), because without you, who knows where we'd be?
Happy Mother's Day. Today, tomorrow and forever. You're the greatest gift of all.
