I see you momma.
I see you dreading Mother’s day. I see you feeling anxious about how the dreaded day will treat you. I see the apprehension, the fear, the guilt and the sadness that comes from a day that most moms celebrate and enjoy.
I was you momma and on this Mother’s day I’ll think of you often and remember your little ones that were taken far too soon.
It’s just unfair.
It’s all those little things that make this day unbearable. Like heading out for breakfast and being asked if you’re a mom. Or, heading to church where all the moms are recognized and asked to stand and you sit heartbroken in your pew.
I’ve been there momma. And, I know the gut wrenching heartbreak that comes from these experiences. My heart aches for you momma because I know all too well how hard this day can be.
Be kind to yourself momma.
You’ve experienced an unbelievably heart breaking loss. A loss so extraordinarily great that only another loss mom can truly understand. A loss that rips your soul to pieces, shreds your heart to bits and leaves you questioning how and why you were chosen to suffer this way. A loss so profound that you wouldn’t even wish on your very worst enemy.
Protect your fragile heart momma. Protect it however you see fit.
There’s no shame in avoiding or choosing to tackle this day head on. You do what hurts your heart the least. Speak openly about your beautiful babies or choose to keep them in your heart. Doing whatever makes your heart ache just an iota less is the right approach approach for you.
You are a mother to a child you only held for a moment or, not at all.
You momma are faced with the inexplicably difficult and heart wrenching role of mothering a heavenly child.
On Mother’s day, please know that I’ll hold you close to my heart. I’ll send you peaceful vibes and gentle hugs while I think of you and your beautiful babies.
Be kind to yourself momma and above all, remember that this day is absolutely about you.
You are a mother – the strongest, bravest and most resilient mom there is.
Happy mothers day bereaved momma – you are without question the most special momma there is.
