It`s great being a MOM

Thanks to Tiffany from Growing from Obstacles for posting this! I recently found it again and wanted to share.

1. Because they never thought that "doing it all" would mean doing this much. But they do it all, and then some.

2. Because they've discovered patience they never knew they had.

3. Because they are willing to do something 10 times, 100 times, 1,000 times if that's what it takes for their kids to learn something new.

4. Because they have heard doctors tell them the worst, and they refuse to believe them.

5. Because they have bad days and breakdowns and bawl fests, then they pick themselves up and keep right on going.

6. Because they manage to get themselves together and out the door looking pretty darn good. Heck, they even make sweatpants look attractive.

7. Because they are strong. Who knew they could be this strong?

8. Because they aren't only moms, wives, cleaners, chauffeurs, cooks, and women who work. They are also physical therapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, teachers, nurses, researchers, coaches, Respitory therpist and cheerlearders.

9. Because they understand their kids better than anyone else does - even if they can't talk or gesture or look them in the eye. They know - they just know.

10. Because just when it seems like things are going OK, then they're suddenly not - but they deal. They deal even when it seems like their heads or hearts might explode.

11.Because they cheer on their kids for the smallest things including just moving their legs and toes,run and play as hard as they can sing at the top of there lungs dance as fast as they can even though they are out of breath and need meds to help them breath.

12. Because when they look at their kids they just see great kids. Not kids with Spina Bifida/cerebral palsy/autism/Down syndrome/ADHD/developmental delay/Asthma or whatever it doesnt matter cause they are Just great kids.♥
