We Smile.

A Tribute to Struggling Moms

We smile.

Through the chaos. The tantrums. The arguments. The messes.

We smile.

Even when there’s knotty hair, missing shoes, dirty diapers, and soaking wet bathrooms.

We smile.

We cry sometimes, but we also smile.

Even when it feels like we’re failing.

We smile.

Even though the days are long.

We smile.

Even though we barely sleep.

We smile.

Even though we work from morning to night.

We smile.

Even though we never get a day off.

We smile.

Because we are “Mom.” And we know there are little eyes watching.

We smile.

Because, somehow, we must hold our families together even when we feel like we’re falling apart.

We smile.

Because we know that someday we will remember this as a beautiful time in our lives.

Full of love, giggles, make-believe, and magic.

When we were the center of their worlds.

And we refuse to wish away days that someday we’ll wish we could have back.

So, we smile. ❤
