Being a mother is amazing.
But being a mother is not easy. There are days when nothing seems to go right, and you constantly wonder what you are doing wrong.
At times, being a mother can be overwhelming and exhausting, while others make it look so easy.
Sometimes it can be hard keeping it all together, and there are times when you just want to scream.
But the good times and easier days make it all worthwhile. The smiles, the giggles, the endless hugs and the absolute amazement at the things they learn every day.
We take the good with the bad, and get through the hard days when they come. It’s what being a mother means.
Sometimes we all need a bit of encouragement when we are struggling, and to know that we aren’t alone.
It doesn’t have to be Mother’s Day to celebrate being a mother, and appreciating the mothers in our lives.
