Self, make it through the week, please.

1 week til Mother's Day 1 week til Mother's Day 1 week til Mother's Day. One more week of sappy commercials and even sappier Lifetime specials...I can do it! Mother's Day is so bittersweet for me. I love and appreciate being recognized by those who send me well wishes on this day, but it doesn't take away the sting that the "holiday" brings on at full-force. It is the one day that I can be acknowledged as a mother, yet I have no child to celebrate with me. More to come on this, I'm sure...


  1. Have I told you lately how strong you are? How beautiful you are? And how much she is going to look up to you! You are wonderful!! :)

  2. I feel the same exact way. People wish me "Happy Mother's Day" but I don't feel like a mom because I don't have Chloe with me. It feels so entirely awkward. It's nice to know someone else out there knows that feeling. It's hard to make people understand who haven't been there.
