A Mom’s Perspective

If you look up the word “mother” in the Webster’s Dictionary, there are about three different representations of the word. It can be used as a noun, adjective or a verb.

Parents have a tough job, raising little humans to be the next leaders of the world. It’s our job to teach them to be kind, how to manage their finances, make the right decisions—the list is endless.

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I just wanted to shout out to the mommas.

To all the stay-at-home moms: the ones who’ve made it their purpose to be at home and raise their children. Those who get through the messes, the stresses and all of life’s little moments. You’re killing it.

To the working moms: you’re doing a great job at balancing work and home life—showing your children that it can be done, working hard to provide for your family and making every special moment count.

Being a mom is tough, in general and overall. But it’s up to us, (yes, all mothers) to encourage and uplift each other. If you work, you go, Mom! If you stay at home, you go, Mom! If you are doing what is best for you, your family and your children, then keep doing what you’re doing.

You go, Mom.
