I’ve always looked forward to Mother’s Day. It’s a time we celebrate my Mom, what’s better than that? She’s raised eight children, mother-in-law to eight, grand-mothered another 20+, and is a great-grandmother, too. Each of us have a different and special relationship with her, so celebrating her on Mother’s Day is a no-brainer!
Having always wanted children of my own, Mother’s Day can also be a real downer. My challenges with infertility, miscarriage, and our grandchildren moving back to Arizona; are parts of my life I continue to struggle with, often. I could have predicted this week with Mother’s Day looming, that the 50-minute hour in therapy would be chock full of feelings!
I follow a blog by Seth Adam Smith: Seeking the Northern Lights of Life. Today as a scrolled down Reader I read a blog today that really hit home for me: To Women Who Dread Mother’s Day. I felt like this was written for me today, the universe knowing I needed to see these words, read them and let them sink in.
Today’s thank you goes out to Seth Adam Smith for beautifully acknowledging women “who are mothers of many!”
