I Am Thankful

When my coffee gets cold,
When I have no time to shower,
When my nerves are frayed,
When my space is not my own
and neither is my time,
When sleep is elusive,
When my house is a mess,
When moments are not picture perfect,
When my kids are off the wall,
When the whining hurts my ears,
When I forget who I am,
When I struggle to handle it all,
When I feel like I can’t do it for one more second,
I am always, always thankful that I am a mother.
Motherhood is hard. So hard. But so, so worth it.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there.
