Happy Mother's Day to All.
Today has been a hard day for me the last few years. It always starts off the same... i can never find anything to wear to church (i hate finding things to wear... i need to go shopping...) I go to church and hear what the characteristics of a good mother are, and about how it is a great privilege to be a mother. Then I go out to eat with family (including my pregnant younger sister)... And then go home... sit is a quiet house... and long to be a mother.
This blog is not going to turn into a story of my struggles to be a mom. I try not to focus on it. I have been so blessed. I want for nothing (not that i have a lot extra, but i have what i need). I have a family that loves me... siblings that i can depend on. My dogs are a blast. I have a great job where i nanny 4 beautiful children. But my desire to have children grows. the more years i put behind me, the more i want for those babies.
Anyway, Happy Mother's day. To all the grey haired mothers, the young mothers, the mothers who have lots of children and the ones who have only one. To the mom's have children thru adoption, and the ones who gave birth themselves. But also, Happy Mother's day to all the women who long so badly for children, and for whatever reason, don't have them.
Happy Mother's Day to All!
