International Bereaved Mother's Day
Today is International Bereaved Mother's Day. It is a day to honor and remember those of us who have lost a baby or child. Every loss is hard, it is never easy to say goodbye to someone you love. But there is nothing like losing your child. As much as we hate it we expect our older loved ones to go before us, we know eventually we will have to say goodbye to them. You never expect to have to do that with your own child. They are supposed to outlive us.
Our hearts will never fully heal. There will always be a touch of sadness we can't get rid of. On days like today I hope that we can celebrate the lives of our wonderful children instead of dwelling on that sadness. Today we celebrate that we did have a child, that we are still their mother! As much as society would like us to forget or move on, we know that isn't possible, and it shouldn't be. No matter when you lost your child you were and are still their mother. No matter how much time you had with them before they went to Heaven you still loved them, still cherished them. They are still our babies. We will always be their mother.
So today we should all celebrate these wonderful moms and celebrate their special babies. Today we honor them and show them that we haven't forgotten. To all my baby loss moms out there, today I am thinking of you and your angels. I am celebrating their life along with Isabella's. I hope everyone will join me in this and show these wonderful Mother's that we love them and their babies and that we celebrate them! If you know someone who has lost a baby or child let them know you haven't forgotten. You have no way of knowing how much that would mean to them. I can't put in to words how wonderful that feels!
