Mother’s Day Message

For so many years this day has given me pause due to my strained relationship with my own mom and my struggles with infertility.  Today I saw these messages and thought they summed up the feelings surrounding this day.  You are seen and not alone…

To those that gave birth to their first child this year – we celebrate you
To those who lost a child this year – we mourn with you
To those who are in the sleep deprived trenches everyday with little ones – we appreciate you
To those that experienced loss through miscarriage, failed adoptions or running away – we mourn with you
To those who are pregnant with new life, both expected and surprising – we anticipate with you
To those hiding in church when they ask the mothers to stand – we pray with you
To those who lost their mothers this year – we grieve with you
To those who walk the hard path of infertility, fraught with pokes, prods, tears and disappointment – we walk with you
This Mother’s Day, we are all seen and heard… you are not alone as we are all warriors
