“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” -Washington Irving
Many of us are fortunate to call an incredible woman in our life mom. These are the people that shaped us and influenced us to be the people we are today. And at N2, we are lucky enough to have a lot of awesome moms on our team. These, too, are women raising the next generation all while working alongside us day in and day out. Despite the fact that being a mother tends to be a thankless job and that words fall short, we do want to convey how deeply appreciative we are of all our moms and say a big… Happy Mother’s Day!
Our incredible working moms
The incredible feat of raising children and simultaneously maintaining a professional career can seem insurmountable. Add the cries of “Mommy!” in the background, and it’s near impossible. Yet our moms are tough -- doing more for their children than they will ever fully realize -- and still perform this daily balancing act with the grace and skill of an orchestra conductor.
Whether they are dropping the kids at soccer practice on the way to meet a client or making peanut butter and jellies before heading out the door to a resident event, our N2 moms get the job done at home and in the field. But what’s even more extraordinary -- and a testament to the caliber of people we have on our team -- is that they fully exemplify our N2 values in their work life, yet still their first priority is participating in and contributing to their home life. We salute the moms on our N2 team for their fortitude and their unwavering commitment to their families -- and to N2.
How they do it
How is this all possible? Our working moms are superheroes at home because they are dedicated to a refreshing notion: family comes first. Yes, they are successful at work, but that success is only valuable when shared with loved ones. Our working moms decide what’s most important to them and then they go after it. So, from N2, we’d like to send a huge thank you to our working moms for their dedication to making sure that their family stays in the top spot in their life.
And thus, for one final time, we’d like to wish all the moms out there a Happy Mother’s Day!
