I’m a mother.
I’m a wife, a therapist to my autistic son, a cook, a taxi driver, a wiper of noses.
I cook and clean the spilled messes. I’m a rule maker and a referee of fights and arguments.
I’m a mother, which makes me all of those things.
They are hard things. Sometimes heartbreaking things.
But good comes, it eventually comes.
It comes in hugs and kisses and lots of pictures colors wildly and put on my fridge.
It also happens to make me lonely.
It takes so much from my soul that I feel as though I have nothing to give, nothing is left of me.
So when I am down, when I’m rock bottom after a day of very hard mothering, I reach out.
I have to. I have to speak to God, I have to reach out to a friend and tell them I’m in the dark today.
I’m lonely. I’m in the dark alone and really need a friend.
I know all mothers feel this way at some point. It’s normal to feel lonely in motherhood.
I know that is why God gave us girlfriends.
To help us connect.
To help us lean on each others shoulders.
Because God doesn’t want us mothers to walk the earth alone….He was us to walk hand in hand.
