Happy Mother’s Day!
Motherhood is no easy feat; there are always too many things to do and seemingly endless cries to listen to and understand, with barely any time to catch your breath. As a single mom years ago, I know all too well the struggle to make ends meet for the family I needed to feed, while still making sure my presence as a mother was felt.
To be a mother is to literally shed blood, sweat, and tears. It’s definitely not for everyone, and I respect those who choose to live their own lives unfettered by child-rearing; there are many other things to struggle through, after all. The world needs people with undivided attention to focus on things of great consequence.
And yet I wouldn’t trade motherhood for the world.
