What makes an awesome mother...
I really think it’s a mom’s willingness to just keep going. No matter what method has thrust you into a mothering position you can be amazing. All you need is to just keeping going. Wether through constant repetition of the same lessons the same boundaries or sleepless nights and a loss of bodily autonomy if you just never give up I don’t think you can fail at being a mother but a great mom’s secret weapon....
A support network.
Those who believe in you when you give up.
Those that remind you you’re doing a great job.
Those that thank you for what you do because sometimes those we mother aren’t in a place to do so yet.
Those that give you breaks when you need them.
Those that empathize with you in the hard stuff.
Cry with you through the embarrassing stuff.
Laugh with you through the hilarious stuff.
And those that never judge.
And for me some of those people that make me a better mom are the mothers and fathers in my life.
My own mother has probably been my greatest support in that she has been an incredible role model. And I am so beyond blessed to be encouraged and supported by more fathers and mothers than I could never have imagined being gifted.
I’d love to hear who your greatest mom supports are on this Mother’s Day?
