A Mother's Day Letter to Grieving Moms
To My Fellow Loss Mom on the First Day of the "After"
His peace is bigger
What I want you to know about losing a child
If we are being honest, I am not too excited about celebrating this Sunday. Mother's Day is always a bittersweet day for me due to losing my biological mom, and add on top of that the fresh pain of losing Chance and well. . . you pretty much have the recipe for soaking the church pew with tears this Sunday.
But I know I will make it through. Because I love a God that is bigger than my pain, and this same God that is bigger, loves me more deeply than I can ever fathom loving my own children.
So I will force myself this Sunday, my first Mother's Day after losing my son, to focus on what the Lord has given me, and not what he has taken away. I will try with all my might to savor what is, and not what could have been. Tears may very well still come, and that is just ok.
I am beyond thankful for these two beauties. . . So blessed to be their mommy. . . Words cannot even describe how much I love them. . . I know all you mommy's out there feel the same about your own.
Apparently she has been watching daddy read his paper. :)
Clara made this for me at school this week.
Her teachers are so dear and knew the perfect adjective to make me smile.
