I just wanted to wish all the women reading this blog a Happy Day!
Don’t take this wrong, but I sorta hate Mother’s Day, ( I adore, love and honor my own Mother she is my best girl friend) and I admit this year will be easier now that I have Etta. But after 8 years of infertility, Mother’s Day seems like a swear word, and it has a not very lovely spot in my heart.
I am one of those people who want to hide away in my house and not leave AT ALL, so that I don’t have to interact with anyone or hear that awkward pause, “uh…happy uh Mother’s Day” Or the “you’re a mother too”. I know these things are said with good intentions, and from people that I love, but it always hurt.
I still have my insecurities, but I have been given the gift I most long for so I am thankful to God for that.
So, now on Mother’s day my heart ache for those that don’t have what I have, because I know how it feels, and I just want you to know that I love you all, and hope you make it through this day. (Sorry this is sorta not interior design on a dime oriented, and yes, I am getting emotional as I type this… did you know I am a total faucet when it come to my emotions? I am) Moving on,
I just wanted to wish you all a great day to celebrate the loving nurturing women in our lives, that have taught us, reached out to us and shown us love daily!
I saw this video on a friend’s blog I thought it was very nice. I am going to take the rest of this holiday off! Enjoy the time with your family! (be back tomorrow morning, bright and early!) I think or hope that you have all read about Nie’s story if not go peruse a little, she is a wonderful example of strength and womanhood. The video is like 8 minutes long, but way worth it.
