I originally had a different topic planned for today but as I scroll through social media I see all these other mom’s mentioning how they have been sick lately. As I have been experiencing the same thing I can’t help but think about how strong we are as mother’s and how we continue to persevere through so much. I know I get frustrated easier when I’m sick and am not always fun to be around but I also know that the routine we have must continue and dinner must still make it’s way to the table.
Although I do think we as society are getting better at recognizing the twenty four seven job of being a mom I still think we have a long ways to go. No matter if you work full time or part time, stay at home or work from home we as mothers always have the job of being there and taking care of our kids. This is a never ending task that changes as evolves but never disappears. As I look at my children I see their need to be cuddled and loved and to know that their basic needs are taken care of and as an adult I rely on my mom for different things from my mom, such as advice and encouragement. These needs although ever changing never disappear and even when we are sick we still have to provide for our children.
As mother’s we need to band together and help one another. We all have different challenges; whether we are sick for a few days; struggling with depression; have a difficult day with our children, we as mother’s need to be understanding, kind and considerate. We need to stop pretending like we have a perfect life and rather show our real lives. We need to support one another and be willing to listen without judgement. We as mother’s are a strong group and we need to build each other up and use our shared experiences to benefit us rather than hinder us.
