Mother’s Day is such an amazing holiday. I love that there is a special day to celebrate how amazing mom’s are, and all they do. They truly are the hidden superhero’s of our world, and this Mother’s Day I am excited to celebrate strong mom’s everywhere. In partnership with Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags, I am excited to celebrate the amazing strength of mom’s everywhere who tackle daily messes every day…sometimes it feels like every hour.
I have never met anyone stronger than my mom. She is the ultimate example of motherhood, and loving her children with all of her heart.
My parents were seriously the best parents ever! I am so grateful for the amazing example they were of love, parenting, faith, and marriage. Growing up, watching my mother embrace so many different roles and wear so many hats flawlessly was such an encouragement. She is a role model to the strength of women.
I could easily list 100 life-changing lessons she taught me. Here are 3 I carry with me daily:
1. Find Joy in Every Season
The stages of life change so quickly. Even as mom’s, we sometimes feel like little ones will be little forever or we will never sleep again. My mom constantly lived this way, finding joy in every transition and finding the good in each and every day…no matter what came her way.
I have learned, as a mother, to appreciate the different stages of raising children. I’ve learned to identify things I know I will miss at some point, and soak them up each day. We are raising our kids for such a short period of time. Appreciate all that comes with it.
2. Give Yourself Grace.
I can be so hard on myself. My mom constantly reminds me to give myself grace….being less uptight about every little thing. I can’t do everything every day, but I can do some things each day. She always reminds me to make lists and encourage myself of all the good I’ve done and are doing. Some days feel like groundhog’s day. But there is so much we are doing as mom’s. Sometimes we have to encourage ourselves, and let some stuff go.
3. Ask for Help.
Sometimes, our “super-hero” complex as mom’s, juggling so many roles each and every day can get us in trouble. I have a really hard time asking for help, but my mom reminds me of the importance of asking friends and family to help when just needing a break. There are always people around us who would love to help us in some way, but we just have to reach out. This has been such a helpful lesson, and the more I do it the more I enjoy the journey of motherhood.
Just like Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags, today’s moms are Ultra Strong in everything they do. Hefty® is helping to celebrate strong moms in honor of Mother’s Day by teaming up with John Cena and his mom Carol Cena.
I know my mom and most mom’s are always looking for deals to spend their money wisely to benefit the family. I love that Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags offer “Hefty Hefty Hefty” strength at a low price. I can get a great brand without breaking the bank.
Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags have Triple Action Technology to resist tears, punctures and leaks, and a break resistant grip drawstring! If they can’t handle your trash needs, you can even get your money back!
