A Different Mother's Day
By Grable Tales on May 11, 2014
Photo by Megan Love Photography This Mother's Day already feels different than my first two...Two years ago, we had just found out we were pregnant with Charlotte and actually shared the news with Sam's extended family on Mother's Day that year.And last year, five months after we said good-bye to our Charlotte, I struggled with letting anyone recognize me as a mother since we were childless and was so very sad & angry that I didn't have my baby girl to hold in my arms.This year, I find myself both happy & sad when I think about the two lives who have made me a mom... obviously so thankful to have Calvin here in our arms, but still missing Charlotte every single day! So today, as you spend this holiday celebrating the mothers in your lives, I ask that you remember those who may not look like a mother because they don't have a child physically in their arms.Celebrate them.Love on them.It's okay that you don't have to have the "right things" to say, just honor them too!Happy Mother's Day! . . .
