Dear mama’s…

When I brought my first daughter home I was full of confidence. I knew just what to do to love and care for this beautiful soul. I felt it deep in my bones… this is what I was meant to do. I didn’t know the immense depth of love until those first few minutes with her but I knew I’d do anything for her.

As time went on however, I realized I most definitely didn’t know just what to do. I didn’t know what to do when she ate a small clump of spackle while remodeling our house. Or what to do to get her to stop hitting her head on the floor during an epic tantrum. I didn’t know what to do during her first earache. How was I going to carry 2 kids and the grocery bags when my second daughter was born? Or my third?!

How could I mend their hearts when they had their first friend fight? Or they felt left out? What was I going to do to ensure she was safe driving alone for the first time? Without me??!! What was I thinking??!

I’ve learned I don’t always know what to do. The one thing I DO always know however, is that I love my babies unconditionally, with all of my heart. I can be there. I can listen or sit in silence. I can let them know they are loved. They are wanted and they are needed. I can be silly with them and be an example in this world for them. I can and will show up for them. Every day. Unconditionally.

Mama… you CAN do this. Whatever you’re facing, even when the words, “I can’t do this!” creep into your thoughts, you can do this. I know you can. You’re not alone. Go be bold in fierce in your journey and soak up all those fleeting little moments!
