Becoming a mother, whether it’s for the first or the fourth time, is a beautiful experience. Looking down at a breath-taking human who you created and brought into the world is a powerful life experience. But, those first few week, months, even years, of motherhood can also be quite stressful. Isolating even. As we prepare to celebrate mothers around the world this weekend, remember to show yourself grace in the moments when things don’t feel beautiful and perfect. Remember that parenting is a journey and some days will be better than others.
You are doing a great job, Mom!
