Mother's Day: To All The Moms

This week I'd like to share some notes on motherhood I've written. Some of these posts have been shared before on other websites. Links to those sites have been noted at the end of these posts. Some pieces have been shared here on my own blog, but are things I feel deserve another look. Some are just brand new shares on being a mom. Join me in celebrating mothers.

To all the moms out there. 

Happy Mother's Day.

To the new moms. The ones who are trying to decide if they're doing anything right.

We see you. Happy Mother's Day.

To the Mama-To-Be. Expecting her first. Second. Third. Whichever addition to your family this baby is - it does not matter. What a blessing. What joy.

We see you. Happy Mother's Day.

To the woman trying to become a mom. Aching. Yearning. Pulling out all the stops. 

We see you. Happy Mother's Day.

To the mother who returned home without her baby. A loss impossible to describe. But one you've been given no choice but to bear. 

We see you. Happy Mother's Day.

To the single mom, spending her first Mother's Day with her child. Alone. Thinking back to years gone by. You're recognized. Celebrated.

We see you. Happy Mother's Day.

To the mom who finds that their partner does not acknowledge these kinds of days. These so-called holidays. But you wish they did. Just a little. Just this once. 

We see you. Happy Mother's Day.

To the young mom who feels judged. Belly swelling. Baby in arms. You are a mother, same as anyone else. Look at that baby. They know who you are. 

We see you. Happy Mother's Day.

To the adoptive mother, holding your child in your arms and hearing them say your name for the first time. Momma. Mommy. Mom. 

We see you. Happy Mother's Day.

To the moms without their own moms to celebrate. Motherless mothers, for whatever reason. 

Distance. 

Time. 

Heartache. 

Loss. 

Need. 

We see you. Happy Mother's Day.

To each mother out there who is hurting, hoping, laughing and crying. 

To each mother out there who is listening, learning, loving and smiling.

We see you. 

Happy Mother's Day.
