Sunday is a big day for a lot of people – more than most people realize. If you’re fortunate to have kids, it’s easy to forget that others aren’t so lucky. We’re an odd country when it comes to reproduction in so many ways and a big one is being quiet about loss. My closest friends have had heartbreaking challenges and it makes me very conscious about the things I say and don’t say to people.
In a society overcome with political correctness, it may seem silly to avoid asking if a person has kids or is trying to have a baby but when the other person wants children and is struggling to have them the question is like a knife in the heart.
I don’t have personal experience with this and I’ll be as guilty as anyone with weekend posts about Lucas. I gush over him so much because I’m grateful he came into our lives so easily and don’t ever want to take that for granted.
So here’s to all the mamas out there, those with their babies, those who have lost them and those who have the heart of a mother – Happy Mother’s Day ❤
