To every mom,
We don’t have time to lose ourselves in our emotions, curl up into a ball in the middle of our beds, and sob all day, like we would so love to do when life takes it toll. There is always a little person or little people, trotting behind, just as a tear is about to fall asking; “Mommy can you feed me? I’m hungry.”etc. So you have to give your tears a rain check. In moments where you can’t let it all out, get the most out of your brokenness. Turn it into something for your benefit, so that in the future, when you get through what is hurting you so badly, you can crack a smile at the remembrance, rather than hoarder bitterness.
“Didn’t we just tell this chick NOT, to talk to that man? Damn it! There she goes! Suit up ladies! I think we are going to be pulling a double shift today!”
“When do we get a vacation?”
“You know if we boycott….it’s going to hurt you more!”
“Do we get paid for time and a half?” (Said with a Fran Drescher accent)
