I may not know what it’s like to hold a baby inside my body. But I know what it’s like to hold a dream in my heart. To feel it grow, stretch and come into the world.
Giving life, mothering, is a miraculous thing.
We as women do so many ways.
However you do, I want to whisper to you today…
You being a mama makes a difference.
Even in the moments when it feels unseen.
Even on the days when it feels like you’re getting it wrong.
Even when you’re ready to catch a plane to Hawaii instead.
The children and dreams you guard and grow are the future. They are the faces of hope, the voices of tomorrow, the loveliness and glory and grit of what is yet to be.
So in case no one has said it lately…Thank you.
For your faithfulness. Your courage. Your obedience.
You are beautiful.
And you make beauty of this life–even on the days you can’t see it.
Holley – A Heart Mother
