Dear Mom Friends,
Oh, how we need each other! This motherhood business is tough. From the moment we first meet our little ones, everything changes! New responsibilities and emotions-not to mention hormones. There’s almost a crisis of identity as we discover our new “normal.” And just about the time we’ve figured out who we are again, those precious little ones are all grown up. Which brings us right back to that identity crisis problem-not to mention the return of the hormones.
The beautiful part is no matter which end of this spectrum we currently find ourselves, there is someone we can help. We moms with many years of experience are able to provide reassurance and encouragement to younger moms. And you young ones…we “older” moms need you equally as much! As you confide in us, we feel needed. You remind us that our experience holds value.
We are in this mom thing together-the beautiful, difficult, happy, sad, funny, frustrating, silly-and that only describes one day in any given week! Or possibly only one hour, depending on the day. So don’t be discouraged. You are beautiful and you’re doing a great job!
Now–go take a nap! Or go to bed! Whichever currently applies…
Your Mom Friend Kelley
