Speed Bump Ahead

I was sitting here, trying to think of something positive and hopeful to say about Mother's Day...but to be honest, this is not a day I am looking forward to.

It's not that I don't consider myself a mother...I do.  And it's definitely not that I don't think we should have a day to celebrate mothers...I've had two great-grandmothers, two grandmothers, a mother-in-law, and most especially my own mother who were and are the greatest women in the world and make me want to throw a parade just to show off how fabulous they are.

But Mother's Day is one of those visible speed bumps in the road of grief for me...I see it coming, I know it's going to jostle me around for a bit, and I'll be glad when I make it to the other side.

  1. Since there's nothing really "happy" about Mother's Day when you don't have your baby to share it with you, I'm going to wish you a PEACEFUL Mother's Day! I hope that during next year's Mother's Day celebration you will be holding a sweet baby in your arms! Lots of peace and love...Kristin
