Motherhood is not for sissies


Motherhood is not for women with weak stomachs,
or white carpets.
It's not for women afraid to fight for a child, even if it means sleeping on the streets of Port au Prince.  


Motherhood is not for women who refuse to believe in miracles or 
refuse to have a car filled with cracker crumbs and cheerios.



Motherhood is not for women unwilling to protect,
unable to sacrifice,
too wimpy to discipline,
or incapable of pulling Legos out of the toilet with her bare hands.



Motherhood is not for woman too proud to stand and cheer the last runner across the finish line,
or too weak to pull a door off of it's hinges. 



Motherhood is for the caring and courageous women who change the world
 with every diaper they change,
skinned knee they kiss,
car pool they drive,
and lecture they give.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
 to all you warrior mama's who face blood ,sweat and tears
to sacrifice your hearts, your time, your sleep, and your own bodies...
for the life of another.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
to the single mama's,
the  empty nest mama's,
the mama's to many,
the mama's to one,
the waiting mama's ,
hoping mama's,
and expecting mama's.

Take this day to cherish your family, enjoy some rest, and reflect on this high calling of Motherhood.
