How did I miss this?

Yesterday was International Babylost Mothers Day.

I must have been living under a rock, or maybe just still reeling from a weekend family wedding (really great) and some shocking comments from my dad (really, the opposite of great. Maybe, just maybe I'll share or maybe I'll just try to get over it). But here it is, one day late, a flower for all the beautiful, smart, funny, strong women I know who have lost children. Seeing this flower in my inbox last night was a balm. Thank you. Oh, thank you.

I am a firm believer that just as grieving never ends, awareness/celebrations/remembrance/advocacy cannot be contained in one day. If you hold someone close to your heart who has lost their son(s) or daughter(s), why don't you clip and paste this little pic from over here and share it with her (or him, for that matter).

It is never too late to share some love.

Sorry about the comments from your Dad. I hope you are feeling loved, today and every day.

Smiling said...

Yes, you are. You are a very beautiful mother.

Hope's Mama said...

You are indeed a beautiful mother.

You didn't miss it- we all had you, M, Isa, and Jovi in our hearts that day.
