Many days I feel like a very small fish swimming up a big stream. Many days I fear my work is for naught. Many days I wonder if it is all worth it. Many days I want to just stop trying.
And then I remember you.
You made a commitment to make this world a better place. You are working by my side to create a positive, supportive environment for moms. You have taken a stand and said, "This is not OK."
You model the principles of The Mom Pledge. You spread the message. You write and thank me for making a difference. You help me fight the good fight.
You lift me up. And give me strength.
When I feel like giving up, I remember you.
When I see a mom attacking another mom online and am discouraged, I remember you.
When I read the comment section on a parenting post and want to scream, I remember you.
When I watch the news and am saddened by the evil in the world, I remember you.
When my child is taunted on the playground, I remember you.
You are very special to me, and I'll never be able to fully express what your support has meant.
Because of you, I do not feel alone. Because of you, I will not give up. Because of you, I know we can affect change. Because of you, I have hope. Because of you, we will succeed.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
