My Mother’s Day was perfect. Woken up by a happy snuggly baby and hubby, reading in bed and then fresh cooked bacon, hash browns and eggs eaten in bed with the family. Then a couple more hours of just wonderful reading before a nap with Baby Soup.
Woke up again and took a shower before joining the rest of my family over at my parent’s house. Delicious burgers, great salsa, fantastic conversation. Delightful day full of love.
Made it very difficult to leave this yesterday morning:
Throughout the day though, my heart had moments of heaviness. For those families and women that will never be able to have this great day. Last year, I made several memory boxes for the local hospital in honor of Mother’s Day. As Mother’s Day came closer, I called the hospital to see if they needed any.
They still had two left. I’d like to think that they haven’t had any child loss, not that they haven’t shared them with the families.
But if you’ve had a loss, know that my thoughts, prayers and love are with you. Wherever you are, whenever it happened, whoever you are – you are loved and not alone.
