Wishing you a happy Mother’s Day!
Happy mother’s day to all the mothers, mother figures and caretakers. To all the birth mothers, adoptive mothers, and mother figures. To mother’s who have lost a pregnancy or a child. To single mothers and married mothers. To all the new moms and the old moms. To the moms of one and the moms of many.
Here’s to you this mother’s day because YOU ARE AMAZING!
Raising and loving and caring for another life is a beautiful, challenging, rewarding and taxing experience. If you chose this path for your life, I applaud you for your courage and your heart. Nothing can compare to a mother’s love.
So today, take a moment to smell the roses. Let the laundry and the dishes sit an extra day this week. Take 5 extra minutes in the shower because you deserve it. But most of all, be present in every possible moment with your kids, because they will never be this small again and we can never get back any moments lost. Treasure the little things and live in bliss a little extra today, and every day you are able!
For moms of pregnancy and infant loss
You are not alone. Mother’s day is bittersweet for me. I have my precious Samson with me, but I miss my angel Noah. My wish for you on this day is that you can enjoy the day for yourself with loved ones knowing that you are enough. As a mother who had a miscarriage myself, I will never tell another mother that I understand your pain, because for me, no one will ever understand how I feel about losing my baby. What I will say is that it is unlike any other pain and days like this will always be hard. But, the memory is something that deserves to be cherished. Every life deserves to be celebrated.
So take this day to celebrate the life you created and nurtured. You are an amazing mom who deserves to be celebrated. Let this day be a joyful one.
