Recently I saw a post on a social media site about motherhood and its reality, and it really struck a nerve with me.

What is a mother? A mother is a million things, all different, but all just as important! Take a look… Whatever your story, you matter! Share with somebody who you think needs reminding.
We love the story about The Very Hungry Caterpillar in our house we always have, and most likely always will.
