It’s Mother’s Day and you should be doing what you love to do best. But just in case what you love to do best is blog hop, and somehow you found your way here, I wanted to have something special for you.

Today I am remembering all of my mommy friends who have lost a child. Whether you had your baby for a few weeks in utero or for many years on earth, if you have experienced a loss, then this poem (http://www.geocities.com/griefpoetry2/mothersday.html) is for you. I pray that somehow, some way you find a little modicum of peace, if even for just a little while.

I also want to shout-out all of my mommy friends (both bloggy and irl). You all have a very special place in my heart. I haven’t known you the longest, but you are so very special to me!!! I think it’s because we are taking this very singular journey together. There is nothing like motherhood and I’m so glad that you are my companions on this road. I love you!!!

Finally, I’d like to say thank-you to my own mother (who is a complete nut job, btw) who gave me life and raised me to the best of her ability. Mommy, I’m going to try to stop judging you. You were dealt a hand and you made choices. Sometimes you did what you thought was best, sometimes you did what you thought you had to do. Sometimes you did what the hell you wanted to do, but that’s life.  Anywhoo, our experiences make us who we are and if it weren’t for the perfect combination of your skillful parenting and colossal screw-ups, I wouldn’t be the person that I am today. And one day my kids will say the same.

Here’s to you Mom!!!

  1. What a great post. I love that you first wished a Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms who have lost children. (BTW, the link to the poem doesn’t seem to be working). I am now the proud mother of two girls, but before they were born I lost a daughter. It’s a weird place to be. A mom without a baby. Thank you for remembering to include those moms today as well.

  2. Such a lovely, lovely post. Like Pam, I loved how you remembered all the various types of Moms out there in the world. It is a great reminder to us all.

    Oh, and describing your Mom as a “complete nut job” totally made me laugh out loud!
