I hear parents brag about their gifted child. I hear moms talk about their baby sleeping through the night, as if there’s some award or badge attached to it. I hear parents talk about all the activities their kids do, all the ways in which their child is excelling in + outside the classroom... as if more is best.
I have friends who got pregnant easily, but there’s no award for that either. I believe there is for those who hug mommas that have lost babies, those who love on + consider women who struggle with infertility, those who listen + encourage those that question if they’ll ever have a child one day.
In fact, I think there is a special lounge section in heaven for women who support other women. 🛋 Women who honor, accept, and consider other women. Especially if those women are mommas. Y’all are getting something EXTRA dope upstairs!
There is no room for competition. No room to judge or compare. We all question our choices. We all wonder + worry if we are doing this thing “right.”
If you’re struggling today,
I see you. ❤️
