It’s Mothers Day – The First For Me

Mother’s Day is a very happy day for ‘most’.

It’s the day lots of women live for. Having that cute little person crawl into bed with you in the morning. Getting that home made card given to you. It’s suppose to be so special.

For many of us though its a horrid reminder that our little ones will not be crawling into bed with us. For others there will be little ones joining them in the morning but there will be the sad reminder that someone is missing.

And for those who have yet to jump to the ‘other side’ there are thoughts of ‘ will I ever get to have a Mother’s Day’.

Today is a sad day for many of us. The reminder of a baby that didn’t get to stay is horrible and devastating. Most will wish the day would just slip by without slapping us in the face.

BUT although your babies are not in your arms, they are in your hearts.

Although they are not crawling into your bed, that doesn’t mean you are any less a Mum. Today is my first Mother’s Day. I may not have Zak with me but I am a Mum and I’m lucky to be able to say that.

I want to wish all those Mum’s out there who are sharing their beds today with extra little people a wonderful Mother’s Day.

I want to wish those who have lost their beautiful bubs a happy Mother’s Day. I hope just the thought that you ARE a Mum can bring a little smile to your face.

And to those who are yet to be Mums, I want to say I understand how hard today is, but I’m sure one day you will be sharing Mother’s Day with a little person, with sticky fingers and dirty toes. A little person who will have made you a beautiful home made card and taking up far more room in your bed than they really need.






My Mothers Day

Just wanted to share with you all my morning.

Scott gave me a beautiful card that he had written in for Zak.

I also got the most wonderful gift.  Scott & Zak got me a Willow Tree figurine called ‘Angel Of Mine’.  Its a Mother holding a new born.  The name of it just fits perfectly for Zak and I.

Thanks For Thinking Of Me

Every so often, just out of the blue someone will send/say something to you that reminds you they care. That they are thinking of you and the things you have gone through.

I would like to share with you all a poem that was sent to me today.  Sent to me by someone who I have never met. (IRL)  Someone who made me smile because they thought of S and I. Knew how horrible this week would be, and wanted us to know they cared.

“When somebody dies, a cloud turns into an angel, and flies up to tell God to put another flower on a pillow. A bird gives the message back to the world and sings a silent prayer that makes the rain cry. People disappear, but they never really go away.

The spirits up there put the sun to bed, wake up the grass and spin the earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you can see them dancing in a cloud during the daytime when they’re supposed to be sleeping.

They paint the rainbows and also the sunsets and make waves splash and tug at the tide. They toss shooting stars and listen to wishes. And when they sing windsongs, they whisper to us, don’t miss me to much. The view is nice and I’m doing fine.”

Thankyou ‘C’ for the poem and taking the time to send it to me.  It is a beautiful poem.  You reminded me just how important it is to have you all here to support me when I’m having a crappy week.
