There’s one thing that struck me about becoming a mom. It makes you raw to the world. I mean you always knew that there was hate, conflict, war and injustice before becoming a mom. But something happens. You start to feel a connection, a personal responsibility to make the world a better place.
Once you become a mom, your heart is connected to all moms. It doesn’t matter what city or what country you are from. We connect. When a mom hurts, we all hurt.
Where there is sadness, there is also light. Look at the love and support of those around you. Hug your kids tight. Be grateful for the chaos of the day. As moms, let’s be the light and the love that this world needs.
It’s okay to show your kids that you are sad. Be as open with your kids as possible (of course appropriate for their age). Then we show them how we can be the strength and love for them, and for the world. It will spread.
