Happy Mother’s Day

It’s Mother’s Day! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mother’s out there. I hope you’re having an awesome day celebrating how important you are! Without women willing to take the risks and put in the time and energy to raise children, we wouldn’t have the friends and family with us we enjoy each and every day.

There are two categories of Mom that deserve a special mention. To Moms who aren’t off today because they have to work, their child has medical needs that never take a day off, or they’re just plain overwhelmed, I see you. I’m thankful for the work you put in each and every day. Your kids may not be old enough to thank you yet. They’ll get there. I hope your spouse, significant other, or another family member has a chance to give you the love and attention you deserve today. Even if they don’t, you’re still amazing and wonderful.

To the Moms with a child that’s earned their wings, they’re looking down on you today wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day from above. Grief is a perplexing thing. You may feel a hundred different ways today, more if the loss is recent. I’m wishing you a special Happy Mother’s Day. You’ve been through something no one can possibly understand without experiencing it themselves.

Enjoy yourselves! Eat all the food, get lots of presents, and don’t do an ounce of work more than absolutely necessary. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

A Special Needs Mom’s Never Ending Battle with Feelings of Inadequacy

I spent the first twenty or so years of my life judging my worth by grades. After that, it was job title and salary. It wasn’t until almost thirty that my son was born and his medical difficulties turned everything I knew about how to measure myself upside down. Some Moms compete over who has the sickest child, but that’s just not me. I’m perfectly happy when my son needs less medical intervention than someone else’s. I want him to be able to blend into a crowd and let something define him besides his health. At the end of the day, I’m left with no way to define myself good or bad. It leaves me feeling completely out of my depth. For every new thing I learn, there’s ten more things I need to work on.
