To Blog, or not to Blog, and Mother’s Day too

I guess the secret is out now.  I’ve been a closet blog reader for several months and I just can’t get it out of my head.  Truth is I’ve had this little blog set up for a couple of months now and have finally decided to dive in.  I was shocked to find out that people make money writing blogs!  Huh?  Wow, I have been living in a cave!  But this is just for us, you and me, no hope of income involved.  I may share what we’re doing, what we’re re-doing, what we need to re-do.  Probably a lot of what Miss M is up to.  My senior English teacher always said that I was a good writer and that she was going to make an English teacher out of me some day.  I think it’s pretty safe to say that I will not be an English teacher; my school days are over.  So maybe a little writing will do.    Without further adieu, my first topic:  Mother’s Day.

I want to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day. 

There are all kinds of mothers out there.  Some of us have Angels waiting for us that we never got to meet.  Some have Angels that they only got to hold for a little while, and some for longer.  Some never got to have a child, and have lovingly cared for another’s.  Some no longer have a mother to celebrate with. 

I never really thought much about it until last year.  You see, last year Mother’s Day came about 3 weeks after my miscarriage.  And although I was only 9 weeks pregnant with Sesame (that’s what Miss M called the baby), and had only known for 3 weeks, it was the worst thing that had ever happened to me.  I never knew that it would be that difficult.  I know that I am lucky to have the one child that I have, Miss M, because there are so many that don’t even get one.  We always wanted more than one, but I’m coming to terms with the fact that it must not have been God’s plan.  But still in the back of my mind, I think about the small chance of another surprise like Sesame.

As I write this with tears rolling down my face at 2:00AM on Mother’s Day morning, I truly wish all Mothers a Happy Mother’s Day.  Those who are, were, or hope to be. 

And I hope Mrs. Stovall doesn’t read this.  I don’t want to know what kind of grade I would get!

Me & Miss M, my favorite person to be a mom to

    Hi Candy,
    I just wanted to say happy mother’s day to you too. We will someday meet our angels in Heaven….I often wonder how Joan looks like now @12 years…not a day goes by that I don’t think of my sweet girl. I’m blessed with my precious son and I know she’s watching over us….take care and you never know what God has in store for us.
