As Mother's Day approaches on Sunday I just want and need to say this...it's okay if Mother's Day is hard for you. For some of us the day brings a bittersweet feeling. Yes, the homemade cards, breakfast in bed or hearing your littles tell you how much they love you warms a Mother's heart so, so much. We all love those kind acts and appreciate them more than you'll ever know. At the same time, when you are missing your own Mom or wishing you were a Mom, or missing a child you lost...all of these can hurt down to the core.
So, give yourself a break. It's okay if you want to have some alone time on Mother's Day. It's also okay if you want to surround yourself with family and friends. Whatever you do, take some time and remember the one you are missing. Do something to help you celebrate their memory.
I miss my Mom every day, but Mother's day in particular brings a sadness to my heart. What I wouldn't give to be able to hug my Mom again. I will be taking some time this Sunday to be quiet, to think of her and to remember some of my favorite memories we shared.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mama's out there. I pray that you have a relaxing, peaceful day. Remember you do an amazing job at being a Mom. You were made for your family. Your deeds do not go unnoticed. Enjoy your special day!
To my Mom: I love you with all my heart. I miss you each and every day. I know you are smiling down on us. Thank you for being my angel.
