Mothers…the 1st Super Heroes

Mom’s…The First Real Super Heroes

Gosh…to think about what I wanted to say to all you mothers, in celebration of your amazing Super Hero powers has really been difficult.  By no means am I perfect, or close to winning the ‘Mom of the Year’ award, but I fear there is too much worry and pressure where this thought is concerned.  Now, don’t get me wrong, because we as humans are not perfect (and there are mothers out there that simply shouldn’t be blessed with this role)…but, for everyone else, all of you…GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK!!!

This time of year, or day, is about the celebration of Mothers.  A special day to really highlight all of your amazing qualities and characteristics, and amazing abilities to do everything, be everywhere, produce multiple limbs for holding everything…YOU NAME IT, we do it all!!!  And although this day counts, and we appreciate the love, gifts, cards, and thought that goes into this day…we’re absolutely fine with even a few quiet hours to ourselves…CHA-CHING talk about winning the ultimate pot o’gold HAHAHA.

Embrace Your Many Roles

We love all of the wonderful people that raise us up on this day (in fact, we deserve to be celebrated every single day)!!!  As a mother, we have many roles.  We are students; we have goals, dreams, careers, aspirations…we are smart, driven, empowering, and not perfect!  We want to give, serve, grow, and live.  We want to enjoy life, rock our messy buns, embrace our worn out sweatpants, and every now and then SKIP THE GYM!!!  There shouldn’t be so much emphasis on what we’re feeding our kids, our focus should be on the quality time we’re spending with them, and teaching them morals and manners that will help them grow into decent human beings.

Our kids are watching every single thing that we are doing and not doing for that matter, and they recognize the stress, aggravation, and overwhelming schedule we have created for ourselves…let alone them!!  Yes, activities are important and so is eating a balanced healthy meal, or simply sitting down at the table together with no ELECTRONIC devices!!  So, give yourself permission to embrace the moment…play outside, get dirty, and live life!

Hang Up Your Cape…(for just a moment)

We take on so much as mothers, and you know what…I LOVE IT, TOO!!!  All the chaos!!!  But, we have to remember every day that it is okay to not always be on!!  Whether you’re an entrepreneur, stay at home mother, nurse, teacher, or volunteer, your role is significant!!  You impact people every single day…and you should be so very proud!!  It’s not an easy role, and WE LOVE IT unconditionally, but we also owe ourselves a bit of a break every once in a while!!

If you are not perfect today, you most certainly won’t be tomorrow either…and you know what????…IT DOESN’T MATTER!!!  You will always have Super Hero powers no matter how tall you stand, or how far you fall…and WE applaud you…the genuine, hardworking, loving, dedicated mother, but most importantly we applaud you, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE!!!

Happy Mother’s Day…Today and Every Day!
