We’ve been watching a lot of Winter Olympics at our house. I love everything about the Olympics, especially the stories about the athletes and their families. Parents who sacrificed time, money and countless other things to help their child get to this amazing competition. I love seeing the pride on their faces, no matter the outcome. Their child is competing in THE OLYMPICS! What an amazing thing to experience.
Procter and Gamble has been running all these great commercials about Team USA and their moms. About how their moms drove them to practice, saved for uniforms, cheered from the sidelines. They are wonderful ads. And, they made me think of all the Special Moms out there who do many of the same things.
We drive our kids to therapy day after day, save money to purchase special equipment and cheer so loudly at every single accomplishment. No matter how small. With each little victory, you can see the pride on our faces. We know how hard they worked for it.
So, to all you Special Moms out there, I salute you. Thanks for all you do.
