Happy First Mother’s Day, new mamas! I know this one is so special, and it’s funny to think of how life changes in a year. I hope your day is full of sweetness. You are doing a better job than you know, I promise. Welcome to the tribe!
Happy Mother’s Day, you in-the-middle mamas, you. Cheers to the many hours you’ve put in and the many ahead. I love learning from you and watching you pour your love into these little humans who make life so good and sometimes so hard. Thanks for being in the trenches with me; you’re good company to have.
Happy Mother’s Day, empty nesters: I know you probably struggle some days with not being needed in the same ways you were for so many years, but you are still more needed than you know. This may be a slower season, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be a fruitful one. I hope you have a wonderful day reflecting on a job well done in raising your children.
Happy Mother’s Day, moms who are reeling from a loss. I’m so sorry for your grief. I’m praying for you and thinking of you. Words aren’t always adequate, but please know you are seen and deeply cared about on this bittersweet day.
Happy Mother’s Day, single parents playing both roles. My hat is off to you. You hold so much down and love those babies so well. You may not hear as much affirmation as you deserve, but look at those thriving kids and know. You are selfless and superhuman and very likely quite tired. I hope someone gifts you a nap.
Happy Mother’s Day to you all! May God shine His face upon you.
