OK. Tough love here. I've been in groups where we talk about how hard it is to be a mom and all we have to do every single day. We laugh about the hard stuff and lament and complain, and then we walk away.

Enough.

Let's laugh, lament, complain (it's OK to share about those hard days), and then pull up our bootstraps and encourage.

If we leave a conversation with the thoughts of "This is way too hard. I can't do this," then we're just reinforcing that we can't do it.

Encourage each other. Talk about the hard day (that's OK), but then, instead of remaining in that, work to encourage and move on. It's that grace element of motherhood. We all need it. We all need to extend it.
