Thank You, Moms

I appreciate my fellow moms.

I appreciate moms of older/adult children, and all the advice and help they give me.

I appreciate moms who do things a little differently than I do, and the prospective they provide.

I appreciate new moms and the moms-to-be, for reminding me of the wonder of motherhood.

I appreciate moms who are in the same season of life I am.  Solidarity, sister.

I appreciate moms who work, whether by choice or by necessity.  "Appreciate" really isn't the right word...I respect you guys, a lot.  I also appreciate those who stay home.  Either choice requires sacrifice and is really hard, in different ways (unless maybe you're a stay-at-home mom with a live-in, full-service nanny.  In which case, I really respect your nanny, and I'm super jealous).

I appreciate moms who foster and/or adopt.  That takes guts and love and patience, and is amazing.

I appreciate moms who have struggled with infertility, who don't have children or don't have enough children.  The desire for a baby is powerfully strong, and to be denied is powerfully difficult.

I appreciate every mom I know.  Without every one of you, I don't think I'd be the mom I am.  So, thanks.  You're the best.
