This Mother’s Day is For You-
Mother’s Day is approaching, and for some, serves as a grim reminder for all they have lost. The fact is, miscarriages are an all too common, yet seldom talked about tragedy that lingers among us. The statistics show 1 in 4 women will experience a miscarriage in their lifetime. With numbers like that, why is it such a taboo topic?
It’s uncomfortable, it’s unpleasant, and it’s an upsetting thing to talk about. But you know what’s even more upsetting? Creating an environment that does not allow those mothers who have endured a miscarriage to talk about it. They shouldn’t feel any less of a mother, because they have an angel baby.
I’ve been struggling to write this post for a long time now, because there’s really no words to help the pain, and no words to express the admiration I have for everyone who has/is dealing with this. It wasn’t until one of my dearest friends had to go through this, that I was able to find the words. My heart is still breaking, and it makes me realize that I can’t even grasp what it actually feels like.
I want this Mother’s Day, and every day after, to be for you. I want you to know that you have support, and you have a shoulder to cry on. I want you to know, this one’s for you.
The Silent Strong Among Us
There’s no badge, no chip on your shoulder to distinguish you from the rest
You have endured every woman’s worst nightmare, yet you’re expected to keep it to yourself
For some, it was your first. For some, it’s a heartbreak you know all too well.
Some have since been blessed with their rainbow baby, and some are still trying.
Every day provides a different pain that no-one else sees.
Another family or friend is pregnant, and you congratulate them while silently screaming on the inside.
Every time you hear someone complain, you can’t help but think how you’d give anything to have your baby in your arms, and to have the chance to feel the exhaustion parenthood brings.
You are the strongest women on this earth. You go through hell and still manage to continue on with your life. You continue to be a wife, mother, sister, with a piece of your heart missing.
Motherly love starts at conception. The feeling and the way you look at the world forever changes when you find out your pregnant.You know what it’s like. You know that motherly love. Your baby may have been taken too soon, but don’t you ever let anyone diminish your role as a mother.
Spread the Love
`It’s important to have an open dialogue when it comes to this topic. If you know someone who has/is going through this, make sure they know that you’re there for them, however they need. Are you going through this, and keeping it all in? That’s not a healthy way to cope, and I promise there are people to listen and be there anyway they can.
Let this Mother’s Day be a celebration. Remember your angel baby, and remember the time you did have. Much love to all the strong mamas out there, and never be afraid to let your voice be heard.
