As a mom, the tasks never seem to end; and the day seems to go on forever. Going to the bathroom alone is the new vacation we seek; and a solo trip to Target is the equivalent of a week vacation on a Caribbean beach. It’s difficult to keep a positive attitude 100% of the time when the breaks are so few, and far between. All of these things combine to leave us, as moms, feeling like we are frequently falling short.

You are not. It is so important to remember that you are not falling short. Moms make the world go round. Where would we be without you?

Moms teach us how to tie our shoes. They teach us the alphabet. They show us what it means to have compassion; how to love unconditionally. Moms let us have the last cookie. They support us in anything we choose to do. They lose sleep to provide for our needs at any time of the day or night. They do the simplist of tasks with so much love.

The list could continue on for pages and pages naming all of the amazing things filled with love mothers do for us; but you, as a mom, are very familiar with those tasks. They seem so ordinary to you, but to us they are the ultimate show of love.

It may sound a little cliche; but to the world you may just be a person, but to your family, you are everything. Truly, where would we be without you?
