International Bereaved Mother's Day

Today is International Bereaved Mother's Day. This time last year, I was blissfully unaware that this day existed. Mother's Day is normally a joyous occasion, but for mother who has lost a child it is a day where you are once again forced to face and accept a painful truth. That you are a mother, but your child has gone on before you.

I have Audrey and Cate to spend Mother's Day with, but the painful truth that Barrett won't be here is still heavy on my heart. Today, while most have gone about their Sunday business, the Baby Loss Community has been joining together to remember our angels. As mothers we do this every day, but on a day like today we join together and remember each others angels as well. It is a sisterhood no one wants to join, but if you find yourself in it, you will find yourself among some of the strongest and most beautiful women I have ever met.

God has brought some incredible people into my life through Barrett. While I hate the grief we have in common, I am so thankful for these people. You all know who you are and you have been a source of strength for me since August that I will never be able to adequately describe to you. You inspire and encourage me each and every day.

I am thinking of all of you and your angels today and you are in my prayers always!
