Mother's Day

Mother's Day

A day when Hallmark can't keep the cards in stock, Moms across the country are being pampered and loved on. A good day. A great day.

Little tiny hands holding flowers, or growing kiddos who are realizing just what being 'their' moms means.

I've already been spoiled this morning and will continue to be throughout  the day.

I am blessed. This is my 15th Mother's Day (Hubby started celebrating the year I was preggo)

15.

Fifteen.

Yet, I remember clearly CLEARLY the pain of sitting in church during Mother's Day as flowers were passed out and Mother's were honored.

One year, I couldn't take it anymore and practically ran to the lobby where I couldn't hide my pain any longer and began to bawl my eyes out.

Deep sobs from the core of me.

Six long years of infertility had lead me to that little emotional breakdown.

Mother's Day isn't always happy for a lot of women.
It can be a painful reminder of what is yet to come or what might have been.


In just a couple of hours I'll be celebrating with my precious Momma.
She's one amazing lady.

She challenges and inspires me daily.

But, I know so many who will be celebrating Mother's Day for the first time without their moms.

The joy  and pain in remembering.

Oh this life can be a hard place sometimes.

So, perhaps while you're out today either at church or brunch or wherever you're celebrating, pause and say a prayer for those who this day is bittersweet.

And if you're one of those for which this day holds pain, please know that I'm praying for you today.

You are loved,

It has to be hard for those that want children so badly. I am so blessed.
