Hey there Mama. I see you. •
You’re tired. Not just I-need-a-nap tired, but that whole-self tiredness, in your brain, your body, your spirit. •
You give, and give, and give. And some days it feels fruitless. Sometimes we don’t get to see big results from our efforts in the short term. No one is very thankful for the folded laundry, the early morning or late night work hustle while they’re sleeping. Sometimes one day blends into the next; you wake up and it feels ever so slightly like Groundhog Day and part of you just. doesn’t. want to.
Sometimes handling the emotions and needs of several humans- including yourself- for many hours feels like too much. Breakdowns happen over wanting a different snack, a different cup, wanting what brother is playing with, not wanting to be asked to do anything, ever... •
But it’s not fruitless, I promise. The big picture is just out of our visual plane, but it exists.
And it’s not never-ending; these days are numbered.
What you are doing matters. It makes an actual difference. The love you’re pouring out is not spilled and wasted; its a daily investment, storing up in small hearts.
So in case no one else says it today: thank you. Thank you. You are doing amazing work here. 💜
