Suffering Mothers

My heart aches for every struggling mother…

I ache for the mom who had to put aside her dreams for her children.

For the single-mom who is sick of her daughter, watching her cry; as she goes to work, pays bills, changes dirty diapers, wipes runny noses, and cooks meals, all with no help!

…the mom who is tired and sore but still makes time to play with her kids.

I ache for the single-mother who doesn’t know how she is going to pay her rent this month…

…the new mom who is suffering with postpartum depression while breastfeeding.

For the mom raising daughter and sons alone because their baby-dad is incarcerated or dead…

I ache for the mom who feels lonely in her marriage.

…the teenage girl who is pregnant while finishing her senior year of high school.

I ache for the mother that had a miscarriage.

For the mom that struggles with a child that has a physical, mental, social, or emotional concern.

…the mom who made the decision to give her child up for adoption.

I ache for the single mother who spends so much time away from her children working, so that she can afford to pay for childcare.

For the grandmother raising her grand-babies.

…the mother whose child is behind bars.

I ache for the mother that had to bury a child.

…the pregnant mom dealing with depression.

For the mom who’s child has been hospitalized since birth.

I ache for the teen mom who felt forced to have an abortion.

…the mom that wants wants to end her life.

For the single-mom who is living in section 8 housing.

I ache for black mothers who have to worry about what could happen their children encounter the police.

…the mothers who have lost their children to police brutality. #Blacklivesmatter

For the mothers who send their kids to a public school system that cycles them into the world with limited education.

I ache for every struggling and suffering mother because I share your pain.

  1. Although I am not a mother and don’t want to become one, I can feel your passion through this piece. Especially in America, women just seem to be a second thought – especially when you have men making laws and policies that don’t concern them. Thank you for this post; I certainly hope it teaches struggling moms who need to feel understood.

  2. Thanks for your comment on my post! I agree with you here. I suppose I’ve always been tender-hearted, but motherhood has taken that to a whole new level. I think on individuals so much more tenderly now — each and every one of them someone’s baby. And I think much more seriously on the mother/child relationship. It has weight. It is raw. It forms people, sets their strengths and vulnerabilities in motion. It’s good of you to stew on that here. Well done.

    1. You speak truth lady! I have learned so much about myself and I appreciate my mother so much more because in some form, mothers compromise their lives for their children! Thank you for taking the time to connect with me. I hope this post will shine a light on a mothers heart and sacrifice.
