We all either have a mother, are going to become a mother or are already a mom.

To those that gave birth to us, we give thanks. For the mothers — in — the — making, congratulations! For the current moms- good job and hang in there! The truth is that being a mom is possibly THE hardest job in the world — exhausting, depleting, and draining. Luckily, on most days, that second wind or cute moment occurs to give us the stamina to carry on. I've heard motherhood described as juggling fragile, extremely valuable balls in the air- we can't let ANY of them go splat on the ground — and those would be our children.

The most common theme and desire among moms: " appreciate me" and " let me sleep in." One mom even said that while she loved her family — the greatest gift to receive was a day OFF! She asked that her husband take the kids (without her) for eight hours and bring back her favorite Chinese take — out!
