I am one of those moms who likes to have shirts for all occasions. Not surprising my mom was like this and I enjoy following her example when it comes to my kids’ clothes.
Today I went through my kids’ clothes to see what shirts they may have for Mother’s Day. This could be any shirt saying Mom on it.
So what did I find? Nine Dad shirts and three Mom shirts. As I thought about it, I realized this isn’t surprising. As Moms don’t we always put ourselves last? Aren’t we always prioritizing others and not ourselves?
While just a small and somewhat silly example with the number of dad versus mom shirts, it shows the mindset of moms. We are always thinking about the rest of our families and downplaying ourselves.
So this weekend, and we should do this way more than a weekend, take some time for yourself moms as we all deserve a little break. We spend so much time worrying about others that we rarely worry about ourselves. And the reality is we need care and attention that we often provide everyone else and not ourselves. So kick up your feet and relax, even just for a few hours this weekend, but be sure to take time for yourselves throughout the year. And enjoy your special day.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
