Today is International Bereaved Mother’s Day 2014.
We have done a lot to be proud of in the last few months… to bring awareness to grieving mothers and to do our part in supporting them as Mother’s Day approaches. I will have an entire post about all of that sometime this week. But for today, on international bereaved mother’s day 2014, I just wanted to ask everyone to stop for a second, hug their children, and think about all the mamas who are missing theirs.
International Bereaved Mother’s Day is a day to honor the mother’s who are not able to celebrate with their child, but still deserve to be honored.
I am no longer actively grieving but I will always be bereaved… and this is a day that I can stop and reflect on my journey, where it began and where I am today. I have come a long way in the last two and a half years. And I have to say that so much of it is from the support that I have received from my blogging friends. Women who were just strangers to me three years ago have now become the pillar on which I lean.
You are beautiful mothers too.
