I’m not the perfect wife or the perfect mother. I’m not the perfect daughter or sister. I wish I could be. I strive to be, but nothing and no one is perfect. These are all facts that I know to be true and though I know the truth, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when they say to me “you’re the best mom ever”; when they thank me for being me. It’s nice to be appreciated even when you ‘don’t‘ feel like you’ve done enough.
To anyone out there who feels like your best isn’t enough, I want to say that it is. They may not like your decisions or complain about the way you do things, but in those small clips in time they recognize and appreciate you; if only for a moment.
