Mother's Day - 2012

Mother's Day . . .

This holiday brings a bunch of different emotions for me.

I am thankful for everything my mom did for me. I am blessed to have Justen and Taylor here on this earth to 'mother' them. My heart hurts, but I grieve with HOPE for my daughter, Calleigh, that is in heaven. And my heart rejoices, but is cautious about the two little ones that are growing inside me. I ran across this blog post and it just so eloquently says some things that are in my heart. I hope you read the whole post, but I will copy the 'acknowledgement to all mothers' underneath the link.

"To those who gave birth this year to their first child—we celebrate with you
To those who lost a child this year – we mourn with you
To those who are in the trenches with little ones every day and wear the badge of food stains – we appreciate you
To those who experienced loss this year through miscarriage, failed adoptions, or running away—we mourn with you
To those who walk the hard path of infertility, fraught with pokes, prods, tears, and disappointment – we walk with you.
Forgive us when we say foolish things.
We don’t mean to make this harder than it is.
To those who are foster moms, mentor moms, and spiritual moms – we need you
To those who have warm and close relationships with your children – we celebrate with you
To those who have disappointment, heart ache, and distance with your children – we sit with you
To those who lost their mothers this year – we grieve with you
To those who experienced abuse at the hands of your own mother – we acknowledge your experience
To those who lived through driving tests, medical tests, and the overall testing of motherhood – we are better for having you in our midst
To those who will have emptier nests in the upcoming year – we grieve and rejoice with you
And to those who are pregnant with new life, both expected and surprising –we anticipate with you
This Mother’s Day, we walk with you.
Mothering is not for the faint of heart and we have real warriors in our midst.
We remember you."

 Happy or Peaceful or Great or Just Getting Through the Day . . . however you spend your Mother's Day - I wish you the best!

 Love and Peace to All!!
