My Heart on Mother's Day

Mother's Day! For most is a happy celebration. But for a lot of women it's a sad day.
A day of feeling worthless. A day of mourning. A day of remembering shattered dreams.
This is what it was for me up until 11 years ago. After suffering four miscarriages this
was not a joyous occasion. This was the one day I wished would have not been celebrated.
My heart was broken and this was just a reminder of things that might never be.
I wasn't ok with that!
For the women that have suffered the loss of a child,
the women that have had miscarriages,
the women hoping to adopt their 1st child or the women that had an abortion
this can be a reminder of the pain they feel inside.
Please be kind to the women you know that have gone through these things!
Don't wish them a Happy Mother's Day
because they have a dog so deep down they are really a mom - to some yes,
but to others this is just a cruel comment.
I don't mean to be a downer on this day but felt that this had to be said.
Now, Mother's Day is a happy day because I do have a child.
But to the women that still don't or never will, please know that I'm thinking and praying for you on this day!
