All Women Are Moms

When you encourage a child to dream big, you are a mom.

When you tell a child how special they are, you are a mom.

When you spend time listening to a child, you are a mom.

When you give advice to a prickly teen, you are a mom.

When you pick up a toddler who has fallen and comfort them, you are a mom.

When you help instill a love of reading into a child, you are a mom.

When you help a child find their passion in life, you are a mom.

When you have dedicated your life to working with children, you are a mom.

When a child’s successes are your successes and their failures are your failures, you are a mom.

When you tell a child how proud you are of them, you are a mom.

When you can’t imagine your life without the children in it, you are a mom.

When you help a 20-something find their way in life, you are a mom.

When a child runs to you with open arms to give you the biggest hug they can, you are a mom.

When a child draws a picture for you and you hang it on your fridge, you are a mom.

When you try your best to cheer up a sad child, you are a mom.

When you come to every sporting event for a child, you are a mom.

When you would give up your life for a child, you are a mom.

Whether or not you gave birth to children is not what is important. What is important is you are here. You matter and your contributions to children’s lives are priceless. The world needs you. You are a Mom.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Treat yourself like all the children you know would treat you on this special day.

  1. This is beautiful, Sarah. I absolutely love how you have redefined Mom to include ALL of the amazing humans who love and care for children in this world. I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!

  2. This is beautiful Sarah! And so true. I think sometimes we get too down on ourselves trying to be what we think the world calls us to. This is such a beautiful reminder for all women at Mother’s Day and beyond! xoxo
