Mother’s Day…I have to admit, as I sit here thinking about it, I have very mixed feelings.

On the one hand:

  • I think about our baby we miscarried 3 years ago this month.
  • I think about how I thought we’d have more kids in our home by now.
  • I think about this past year temporarily mothering 3 kids.
  • I think about those 3 kids today…and their moms.
  • I think about the many women who long to be mothers.
  • I think about the mothers who have lost a child.
  • I think about the daughters and sons who have lost a mother.
  • I think about the daughters and sons who have a mother…but their relationship is severely strained.

But on the other hand:

  • I think about the daughter I do have. Who is alive and healthy and beautiful.
  • I think about the time I got to take care of those 3 kids and how it taught me a different meaning to family.
  • I think about how I grew up always knowing my mom loved me.
  • I think about how I’m going to see her again in just a couple of weeks.
  • I think of God, who loves the orphan and widow, who is Father to the fatherless (Ps.68:5).

  1. Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day. It’s such a blessing to be able to be called “mom”.

    I have been missing your emails and came to check things out today. I was gonna re-subscribe, but can’t find that option on your blog. I didn’t unsubscribe from your blog, so I hope nothing has happened. Thought you might want to check it out.

    • Hope you had a good Mother’s Day too!
      Thanks for letting me know about the subscribe box. It’s been mentioned to me before, but haven’t gotten around to fixing it. I just did though, so it should be there now. If you have any more trouble let me know.

  2. This is a really honest and thoughtful post.

    This Mother’s Day was a really special one for me, filled with family, and a very excited little girl who wanted to make her mommy feel special.

    And of course, my mom too!
    :)
