Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you mommies! New mommies, "experienced" mommies, and every mommy in between - I hope you get breakfast in bed, fists full of flowers, and lots of hugs and kisses.

On Mother's Day (and Father's Day) each year, I can't help but think of the people out there who are struggling with infertility, the people who are estranged from their mothers or their children, the people whose children have died, and people whose parents have died. It's such a hard holiday to bear for so many people, and I hope that if you're one of them that this small recognition of the fact that today is really hard for you, and I'm sorry brings you a little bit of comfort.

Happy Mother's Day to you, too Amy. I posted the same sentiments just now. I know all too well the mom's that are already moms just without a child to prove it.

Hope your special day is all you want it to be
