Just wanted to share a snippet of something I wrote to encourage mothers out heart is burdened for you and we are "in the trenches" together. 



“Motherhood is really, at its core, about perseverance and deliberate, focused endurance.

I don’t mean just the physical kind…more often, it is the emotional and spiritual kind. It requires the kind of tenacity that frankly, few women in our age are willing to develop.

Not the tenacity to simply run a household, though the mechanics of that are a very real part of our job. But the “motherhood” I’m talking about encompasses a whole world besides; a world where hearts are painstakingly drawn out, attitudes are carefully monitored and molded, and life-lessons that can only be taught through the zeal of a mother are learned.

Quite frankly, we’ve probably all had days we thought, “this would be easier if someone else were doing it”. And someone else might be able to handle those mechanics I mentioned.

But we’re talking about mother-love–that all-encompassing vocation that has been given only to us.”

This is so beautiful and so true. Thank you for sharing this, from one mother to another across the internet, it really helped me put words to what I feel. Motherhood is hard, not just in a practical sense, but on a very personal, spiritual, level when it comes to existence/identity. Thank you.

Mothering my two little boys the best that I can!
