Flowers and candy and breakfast in bed and my personal fav (still!) handmade cards with sweet, misspelled sentiments inside…
These are the things Mother’s Day should be filled with. And I SOOOO very much hope yours is! I hope you are being loved on and appreciated and in turn sending things to all the mom’s around you – especially your own!
I am, however, intensely aware that for so many Mother’s Day is not a happy one, or at best a bitter / sweet one.
Maybe from loss of a child, loss of a mom.
Or maybe from a broken relationship.
Maybe your mom did not behave the way mom’s are supposed to.
Maybe, as a mom you feel like you’ve failed.
Perhaps because there’s a crib in the corner that remains empty.
I am so very sorry for your pain. And I wish I could reach out and give you a giant hug and sit with you and listen to your story…
If today is perfect for you – I’m delighted for you and celebrate with you! Still, I hope you’ll remember those in your own circle of life that it isn’t a good day for and carve out a moment. Make a call. Look at an old picture with them. Text them or hug them. Listen to them.
If today is painful for you – my heart breaks for you.
I hope you’ll realize that you aren’t alone – so many women suffer today. Perhaps in the midst of your own brokenness you can be the one reaching out to someone in a similar situation. Comfort one another, because there are some grief’s one must live thru to fully understand.
Please know, that while Marcus and I are celebrating our wonderful mothers and so thankful to be parents – we haven’t forgotten you. And we are holding you in our hearts and loving you and praying for you.
Always. mE and ME
