Being mom is enough: a request

In light of Time’s recent cover that – to many – serves to divide moms into different camps rather than to help any of the causes of moms who are trying to defend their actions, I encourage you all to take on a mini project.  Find something your child made for you – a drawing, a project, a mother’s day gift.  Then pin it. Post it. Facebook it. Keep a picture (or the original) by your bedside. Whatever jazzes you.

Whatever you put together from your child’s creation, title it this:

Being MOM is enough.

Being mom may be a challenge rife with difficult choices, but above all it is a gift. Let’s not let the spectacles created in modern media take us from the fundamental goal all mothers share: to bring up our children in the best way we can into their own.

Pass it on!
