First and foremost, I'm filled with joy. To be able to celebrate this day as a momma to the most perfect, precious boy is a most cherished blessing. He fills my days with so much love and light and laughter. What a joy it is to be his mom.
But today, I also feel a great sorrow. I miss our little girl. I'm crying that I'm no longer pregnant and that I'll never get to hold her. What joy and hope she brought us, but what a hole she's left in my mommy heart.
And my heart also breaks for so many friends and loved ones who are reminded only of loss on this day. Loss of the dream of motherhood, loss of a child, loss of a mother or grandmother. My heart is with you all today.
This image especially spoke to me this mother's day.
So today, I'd like to wish a happy mother's day to all women with a mothering heart. Whether to earthly children, children no longer with us, or children we dream of having, we all deserve the love today.
Happy Mother's Day! <3
