Being a mother is a thankless job, BUT...
Being a mother is a thankless job.
Which can sometimes cause burn out, feeling inadequate and like you need 6 of you cuz you can’t possibly be stretched any further.
But you are enough.
You are actually the most important human in the world to your kids.
If they whine/cry to you it’s because they feel safe expressing their emotions with you.
If they come to you with tattle tale after tattle tale, it’s because they trust you to fix their problems.
If they end up in your room night after night, it’s because they want to be close to you.
If they are jealous of their siblings, it’s because they want all of your love.
♥︎ Even though this is a thankless job,
Your kids are thanking you every time they trust you as the one to cry to, every time they trust you as the one they snuggle in their bed, everything they call you to tell you about something so insignificant.
They know YOU will always listen.
They know YOU always know what to do.
They know YOU love them no matter what.
This day was created so we could all say thank you.
And even though it can be hard if you lost your mom, have infertility, don’t want to become a mother... there’s always a mother somewhere to celebrate.
