Has anyone told you that you are amazing lately?
You work hard to support your family, financially and emotionally. There are so many needs and you often put your kids before yourself. You love them every day, even when they are irritable and gruff.
This parenting stuff is super hard. Some days you want to give up, but you never do. You worry, you hope and you pray. You are always looking out for your kids, trying to ensure that they are healthy and happy.
You read books and blog posts and subscribe to newsletters like this one. You talk to your friends about how to be the best parent you can. This stuff matters to you!
I know you make mistakes, maybe even big ones. That does not make you less amazing, just more human. The important thing is that you always try to make it right, you apologize and learn from your mistakes.
You make good choices for your kids. You are not always 100% sure about the right thing to do, but your intentions are always right on.
I know that you are doing the best that you can even when you feel like it is not good enough.
This is why I think you are amazing!
Keep up the good work.
