One evening I arrived home, lugging my normal variety of items: purse, laptop bag, lunch bag, diaper bag, and Baby Girl in the stroller when I heard a woman call out, “Hey, Supermom!”

I turned to find a middle-aged woman whom had been a neighbor for some time, yet this was our first meeting.  The woman informed me that her two daughters were teenagers but she could vividly remember those days of lugging everything. She told me to enjoy it because it goes by quickly and that I was doing a great job!

This woman did not know me, but she told me I was doing a great job.  I want you to pause and think about that for a second.  A busy mom of two took two minutes out of her day to boost my morale and reassure me that everything would be okay. It only took a few sentences, yet I was lifted for the rest of the day to get through the evening chores of dinner, cleanup and bedtime routine.

Women are strong and Moms should definitely be in their own Super Hero category.  My neighbor reminded me that it is important to lift each other up; we are all going through the same thing.  We may be at different stages in the race, but we’re all on the same racetrack.

For all of you Supermoms out there, keep up the great work, you are doing a wonderful job!

Cheers, T
