Sometimes it’s the smallest holidays that pack the biggest punch.
A little over a year ago, I had a miscarriage. As Mother’s Day neared, I felt pain that I had never felt before. I felt like I was supposed to be a Mom soon. But I wasn’t… and I was definitely not a Mom in other people’s eyes.
This year Mother’s Day will sting again. We were pregnant with a baby girl who was due this past April. We lost her at 22 weeks. Again, in everyone’s eyes, I will not be a Mom this Mother’s Day.
But in my mind, this doesn’t make me, and anyone else out there who is hurting, less of a Mother on Mother’s Day. This year, let’s not forget those that have angel babies, are struggling with infertility, mothers in heaven, or those who are struggling in their relationship with their own mother or children.
I’ve created some Mother’s Day cards this season for you to send to Moms in all capacities. They may be struggling to have their own children, angel babies, personal relationships, etc, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the holiday. Reach out and let them know how much they are loved and supported. You can get the cards here. Or make your own! Sometimes a card is more than enough.
