Saying Happy Mother's Day is a bit of a loaded thing for me. It wasn't exactly a road paved in gold, my road to Motherhood. And that crazy road changed my life, changed my outlook and gave me a whole lot more empathy for those whose dream of parenthood isn't working out as smoothly as they expected. I am so grateful for the Petits - they are the most exhausting fun I've ever had! - but when it comes to celebrating bringing them into the world, there is a whole other set of sad memories that accompany that.
So this post goes out to every woman this Sunday. To the Mums, to the Daughters, to the Sisters, to the Cousins, to the Friends; to those who find the whole Mother's Day thing a bit hard to take due to subfertility, infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth or loss of a precious child. In fact, maybe you find yourself Motherless this Sunday - this post is especially for you.
I will be thinking of you all and wishing you the best this Mother's Day - and every day. xxx
