Mothers Day has so many different emotions for me. I celebrate that I am so blessed to be a mom to my beautiful daughter Ruby.
I celebrate that I was raised by an amazing selfless and caring mother. She was always there for us, so sweet and loving. I wish I could be just like her. I also mourn that for 12 years we have been slowly loosing her to Alzheimer’s disease.
My heart breaks that today is such a painful reminder to my infertility community that still has waiting arms to hold a babe they can call their own. And moms who did hold a baby they called their own and then lost.
Motherhood isn’t just something that comes and goes. However we experience motherhood or being mothered makes us who we are. It molds our personalities, developes our strengths and nurtures our weaknesses.
Wherever you are on your road to motherhood. Your experiences are valuable. They have or are shaping you to be the amazing and unique mother you will be one day.
Happy Mothers Day
“Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.”
Romans 12:15 NIV
