Typically, when we think of a Super Mom, we think of the woman who has it all…great career, amazing family, kick-ass body etc. etc. She can cook like Martha Stewart, balance a budget like Suzie Orman, and keep the house in order like June Cleaver…all while managing multiple children, a job, soccer practices, marriage and a home.
However, Super Moms come in all shapes and sizes. Yesterday, I shared a compelling message from my dear friend Charlene, whose daughter – Ivy Sweet – has been battling childhood leukemia. For me, Charlene is the definition of a Super Mom. She displays the courage, positivity and resilience that one needs to raise a family, keep them safe and ensure they are loved. She is a champion and hero for her little girl, who needs all the clout in her corner that she can get as she fights to be well. All three of Charlene’s little munchkins (who are all under the age of 4, by the way!!) are so lucky to have her for a mom…and I consider myself lucky to know such a wonderful person.
