You are uniquely beautiful, my friends.
Watch. It’s extraordinary.
Sometimes we think it’s about all the things we do – the birthday parties planned, lunches packed, dishes washed, clothes folded, homework checked, nights stayed awake – but so often – so often for our little ones (and big ones) mom simply means mom.
The one they love.
The one they know and trust and can find.
You are that to your kids.
You may think we should be more like the mom across the street or do more things we read online but the truth is that your kids just, plain and simple, need you. Not anyone else. Not what you think you should be. Not the perfect mom. Just you, the mom of them, that loves them. That fights for them. That gives for them. That nurtures them. That messes up and tries again because she loves them.
She loves them.
You love them.
Be proud of you.
The meaning of mom?

Brought me to tears …this is love
Wow! Such an eye opening video and encouraging words. I’m always wondering if I am the type of mom they want, but I now realize I was made exactly as I am to be the mom they need. Thanks, Rachel, for your words of wisdom and encouragement.
