Momma, I See You

0

Dear Momma, I see you.

I see you over there struggling to make it through the day. Life is hard no matter what they say. It doesn’t matter how old your kids are. If they were just born or are 16 and driving a car. The “battle” of emotions in motherhood is always true.

You are not alone. Momma, I see you.

Baby stage, they say it’s the best. Yet, it’s the stage when you get the least amount of rest. You are worn out and exhausted, so tired, it’s true. Days are full of “what ifs” and “I wish I knew.” Everything is different. Nothing is the same. And if that postpartum hits, that’s a whole other ballgame.

Tears may flow down your face. It’s okay, Momma, give yourself grace. This, too, shall pass and as they say, you will miss this stage one day.

You are not alone. Momma, I see you.

Toddler stage, they say it is the best. Yet it’s a stage when you still get no rest. You are worn out and exhausted. It’s nothing new. Days are full of potty training accidents and tantrums, out of the blue. Everything is different. It’s absolutely crazy. Nothing about this stage allows you to be the least bit lazy.

Tears may flow down your face. It’s okay, Momma, give yourself grace. This, too, shall pass and as they say, you will miss this stage one day.

You are not alone. Momma, I see you.

School-age stage, they say it’s the best. Yet once again, there is no time for rest. You are worn out and exhausted. You’re running everywhere. Days are full of chores and schedules with not an ounce of energy to spare. Everything is different. It’s always non-stop. GO. GO. GO! But it’s been this way since your little ones began to grow.

Tears may flow down your face. It’s okay momma, give yourself grace. This, too, shall pass and as they say, you will miss this stage one day.

You are not alone. Momma, I see you.

Teenage stage, they say it’s the best. Yet once again, you worry so there’s no time to rest. You are worn out and exhausted and sometimes full of despair. Days are filled with eye rolls and the words “I don’t care.” Everything is different. They are doing things on their own. It’s like they aren’t babies anymore. They are almost “grown.”

Tears may flow down your face. It’s okay momma, give yourself grace. This, too, shall pass and as they say, you will miss this stage one day.

You are not alone. Momma, I see you.

All other stages, they say they are the best. But really as mothers, do we ever truly get to rest? You are always worn out and exhausted, the “theme” of motherhood, can’t you tell?

Days are filled with wondering if you raised them right and if you taught them well. Everything is different. Life keeps moving on and moving forward, too.

So, in the midst of chaos just remember,

I, a fellow mother, see you.

I am first and foremost a woman who is passionate about loving on people where they are. I am also a mother of 2 toddlers who also tries to teach her kiddos about love for others! I currently stay at home but enjoy volunteering as much as possible. I am kept busy every day with all of our pets and my littles running around nonstop. When I have “down time”, you can find me biking, hiking, or snuggling and watching a good TV show (probably enjoying some chocolate). I love being able to raise my babies at home, but I will also be the first to say that this job isn’t easy!
