“I think as Moms we will never feel brave, courageous, or strong enough…it is in our nature to always do our best for our families. This is why even when you feel like you have nothing to offer, just by being the loving and empathetic person you are, you bring brightness into darkness. It’s almost like God designed Moms to be special in this way. ❤️”
Our friend Elaine sent this encouraging message to me earlier today. I’ve heard people say I’m so “brave” or “strong” in our current situation. I wouldn’t put those titles on myself.
But as Mothers, we do play so many roles in our family. We love. We nurture. We feed. We anticipate. We foster. We console. We protect. We advocate. We teach. We learn. We do what it takes because we have to, because we want to.
So on this Mother’s Day, I honor all of us Mama Bears who do it for our families just by simply being Mom.
