You are enough

To my girls,

You know who you are…

You are a mum who loves her children with a love so intense it’s sometimes unbearable.

You are a mum who worries she’s not good enough for her children.

You feel that you aren’t equipped for this job. It’s too damn hard most days.

You are scared, scared that you aren’t giving them the best upbringing.

You feel guilty taking time for yourself.

You wish that you knew the right thing to do, to say.

You feel alone, even though you are surrounded by people.

You feel as though no one understands you.

Lift your head up high, you love your children, and would die for them.

Let that be enough, even just for today.

You are enough.
