A Mother’s Day Post

On Mother’s Day I often share this post that I wrote in 2011…. If you ask mothers what they want for their children, most would say, “I just want them to be healthy and happy.”  Truly, isn’t that what we all want? So we do everything in our power to make this wish come true. We love, we nurture, we make sacrifices, and we go to the ends of the earth to try to achieve this goal for our children: to be healthy and happy. But sometimes we come up short. Because as much as we like to think otherwise, so much of life is out of our control. Sometimes our children aren’t happy, and sometimes they are not healthy. And sometimes, as hard as we might try, there is nothing we can do to make things better for them. Whatever type of illness they are suffering from, all we want is for them to be okay. We are in our own little club, we mothers. I don’t know about you, but anytime I hear a story of sorrow on the news, or read of tragedy in the newspaper, I rarely think of the victim. Instead my first thought is always, “That poor mother.”  Because there is no stronger emotion than the love of a mother for her child, we feel deeply when other mothers are suffering. And so on this Mother’s Day my wish is for all mothers out there to have happy and healthy children. And if that’s not where you’re at right now, I wish you the strength and courage to carry on toward that goal.

Thank you...for remembering

It’s been a while since I wrote my last blog post, not because I don’t have anything to say, quite the contrary. Not a day goes by without me thinking “I wonder if people would want to hear about xyz?”. 566 more words

Today's the day...that was never meant to be

So, today’s the day. It’s finally here. It’s our due date. The culmination of 9 months of love and longing. The day we’d finally meet our precious little princess. 1,171 more words
