Today on Mother’s Day I am focused on two essential facts. First: We moms cannot do it alone. I am so grateful that I have my own terrific mother as a role model as well as an amazing mother-in-law (whose love I have benefited from for 13 years). I also have wonderful mom friends who encourage and support me in this unsteady journey of motherhood and a partner who supports me in being the best mom I can be. I wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there, but also to the men and women who put in the work that helps make moms better.
Second: moms like me are poised to make history this year – we are running for office at unprecedented rates. We can not only give life, we sustain it. We strive to ensure the highest quality of life for not just our kids, but everyone's kids. When we win, we will take the same passion we have for making our families’ lives better to the legislature -- to make life better for all Michiganders.
This Mother’s Day, I sat down with my kids to talk about what it’s like for them to watch their mom run for office. I’m so encouraged by their loving support of my run! Watch the video we made here for the Greig Women in Leadership Fund.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, leading by example and showing their kids how to love unconditionally.
