We are all familiar with the Pay It Forward concept. Well, Fab Mom would like to challenge you to Fab Mom It Forward.
Fab Mom It Forward is when moms support other moms by offering words of encouragement; provide comfort during tough times; use personal or professional skills to build self-esteem; send a humorous card just because; sit with a friends child/children for a few hours while they get a mani-pedi or makeover or plan a moms night-out. The possibilities are
endless. Maybe your neighbor is a single mom with a full-time job. Surprise her by preparing extra food for her family when you are preparing dinner for yours so that she does not have to prepare dinner when she arrives home from work. Maybe you are a professional hairstylist, personal trainer or a good listener. We can use what we have to support other moms who might need a little extra help. God knows there were times when support from other moms helped me get through some pretty tough times. We love our children and there is no deeper bond than that between mother and child. However, with so many other responsibilities we can sometimes stretch ourselves to the limit. Last week I sent a humorous card to a friend who is an attorney and works long hours. She has 2 children and had a very tough week and felt like she was at the end of her rope. She called after receiving the card to say just how much she appreciated the gesture and how the card was right on time and just what she needed. Any one of us can do this. Let’s spend more time supporting one another instead of judging one another. After all, we're all mothers with a common goal -- raising healthy and happy children.
