This Is What Mom’s Not Telling You

This is what she’s not telling you

She’s unsure if she’s managing her time well.

She’s afraid she’s messing something up.

She’s trying hard to feel confident and connected.

She’s wanting to hear she’s still beautiful.

She’s needing some affirmation she’s doing a good job.

She’s hoping for relief when she’s breaking.

She’s still got dreams and goals for herself.

She’s wondering if it gets any easier.

She’s praying for help every single day.

She’s feeling a little sad sometimes and forgotten.

She knows she’s blessed; she won’t argue that.

But she’s still wrestling with a lot she’s not saying.

Look for a mama who needs a hug.

Reach out and be ready to listen . . .

Moms need to feel supported and valued, too.

Let’s listen closely to what she’s not telling you.
