“Whether you are a single mom or a married mom,
an adopted mom, biological mom, or a foster mom,
a mom who had a C-section or a mom who gave birth naturally,
a mom who breastfed or a mom who bottle-fed,
a mom who rocked her baby to sleep each evening or a mom who believed in sleep training,
a mom who suffered from postpartum or a mom who didn’t,
a mom with anxiety or a mom who doesn’t worry,
a mom taking medication to help with the worry or a mom who doesn’t and a short walk is all she needs,
a mom who homeschools or a mom who drops off at school.
No matter which ‘mom category’ we fall into,
at some point in time, it’s inevitable, we will feel alone.
Alone in our decisions.
Alone in questioning, ‘Are we doing the right thing?’
Alone in wondering if we are the only mom going through this.
Alone in our self-doubt even though we are listening to our intuition.
Alone soaking in all of the emotions a mom endures.
So friends, reach out…
Reach out to her…
Reach out to the other mom who you are wondering if she’s okay.
But wondering isn’t reaching out.
Reach out to her today.
She may just need your text, your call, or your hug.
Support those on this journey with you.
Because whatever kind of mom you are, we all have one thing in common, we are all moms who love our children fiercely.
Reach out …
You never know when you’ll need another mom to remind you that you are not alone.”
