Many of us are moms and we certainly all had one. My own mom died ten years ago this month, and I'll miss her everyday until I see her again. My daughter is a mom who will feel bittersweet this Mother's Day because instead of awaiting the arrival of a new one in July, she had to say goodbye to her at 20 weeks. My daughter-in-law looked forward to being a first-time mom in June, but that wasn't meant to be either. I think about a little boy of mine who didn't make it to term about 33 years ago. Many of us have these stories, and yet we wouldn't have it any other way because we can't be in charge of everything. I hope you have a relationship in your life that is mom-like - either being mothered or mothering someone (something) else. There is nothing in the world like it. Enjoy it - love more and worry less. Use your energy to be hopeful and forgiving
Happy Mother's Day to everyone who qualifies!!!!!
