Here is my mom, in the purple dress. And you can clearly see that I miss her. This was my wedding day. And the woman on the right was just 16 when I was born, I was her first baby and she is my other mom. I will tell this story about how and when I lost her at a later date.
Everyone's Mother Experience is Different. Be Reminded.
Today I am thinking about...
Those who have lost their mothers. What an extraordinary trauma to survive.
Today, I am thinking about those who have strained relationships with their mothers, and desire to make changes, but do not know where to begin.
Today, I am thinking of the single moms who are extraordinary and exhausted at the same time.
Today, I am thinking about the moms who struggle with mental health disorders and diseases on a daily basis and do their best just to get up and be the best parents they can be.
Today, I am thinking about the mothers who have lost their children.
Today, I am thinking about the mothers who have chosen not to be mothers but people have given them grief about their decision.
Today, I especially mourn with the women who desire to be mothers but cannot conceive.
Today and each day; especially Mother's Day I think of you and I send you love and hugs.
