To the other moms of the world:
Happy Mother’s Day!
We spend so much time putting our children first, it’s nice to take one day to allow ourselves to be a little selfish. Today is about you. Get that massage. Buy that thing at the mall that you’ve had your eye for months but couldn’t justify a reason to purchase it. Open up a bottle of wine. Take a nice long bath with candles and your favorite book while someone else watches your kid(s). Order take-out and binge on those shows you need to catch up on. Go take a nap. Do whatever the hell you want because you’ve earned it.
You’re beautiful and amazing and sometimes, you’re a lot stronger than you give yourself credit for. When things are tough, remember that there’s always light at the end of the tunnel and your children will never stop loving you. Keep being you. You’re a great mother.
To all the moms out there – young moms, older moms, new moms, moms who have lost their children, future moms who are struggling to conceive – happy Mother’s Day! You are awesome. You are beautiful. You are loved. Pamper yourself, relax today, take a little time to remember how great you are, and never forget how much your children love you.
