Mother’s Day posts are often a litany of the expectations mothers try and fail to live up to every day. Most mothers I know don’t set out to be heroes—I know mine didn’t (but she was one anyway). Most of us simply set out to survive.
Two of my babies are mothers now. They’re deep into their own game of survival and already realizing that, at the end of the day, if you still love or feel loved, it’s enough.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the heroes and failed heroes out there. It’s enough. ♥️
