Last year, I was seven weeks pregnant when Mother’s Day came. I was messaging with my sister and she told me “Happy Mother’s Day”. In my mind, I couldn’t understand why she said that, I’m not a mother, not yet at least and I even said so to her. She replied, “Yes you are, your baby isn’t born yet but you are their mother”.
Almost a year has gone by and now after 2 miscarriages, my mind and heart have been changed. I am a mother. I never got to see my little angel babies but I love them as much as any mother with living children would. I’ve worried about them, cried for them, longed for them, and will never forget about them.
If you are a women who has loved and cared for a child that didn’t belong to you; if you have put thousands upon thousands of dollar into treatments in the hopes of getting pregnant; dotted those I’s and crossed those T’s, filed paper work, and did everything to the letter so you can adopt a baby you have never met; carried a baby that you absolutely loved but lost to miscarriage; one of those amazing, courageous women who only got to see their babies take their first steps; You are a mother.Celebrate and be thankful for the love that is soon to come your way Click To Tweet
We may not look like moms. We don’t have children to call us mommy. We aren’t able to take them out to celebrate the day with us and be showered with gifts and homemade cards. Don’t let this fool you. Deep down, you are made of everything a mother possesses, every bit of your being is what a mother should be, needs to be, strives to be.
Someday, and I hope soon my friends, you will show the world what kind of a mother you are. Till that day comes, know in your heart, this day is for you as much as it is for any mother with children they can hold in their arms. Celebrate and be thankful for the love that is soon to come your way because God will never leave you empty. He knows your heart and your desires and through him all things are possible.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies!
