I know, Mother’s Day was a few days ago. Just because the day has come and gone, doesn’t mean that a mom can’t get some encouragement. Sure, on Sunday, moms around the country were treated to meals, gifts, maybe even a day to NOT clean the house! But Monday, it’s back to the grind.
The school year is coming to a close. For moms, that means the last few days/weeks of lunch preparations, teacher gifts, field day extravaganza, and maybe class parties. There is a lot that goes on in the day of a mom. It’s hard. I’m voting there are moms that wish they had more hours in the day to getthings done.
I feel a little unqualified to make these statements, since I’m not a mom. At least not the kind of mom that has a baby or child here on Earth. Most of my friends and family are parents to some pretty awesome kids though! I’ve watched and heard them talk about their day in and day out experiences. Also, as a “writer” you tend to observe people and situations everywhere you go. when I wrote this song, I did also consult a few people to get their opinions, and to make sure that I was on the right track.
I hope this encourages someone out there to know that they are the best mom! I wish our society would stop judging what one mom does verses another. I also wish we would be more open about our trials so that someone else might not feel alone in their pain or anxiety. If you are a mom that is struggling to see the good you are doing, I hope this encourages you today!
