Waiting Mothers

Last year, I received a card from a friend a few days before Mother's Day. It had this on the front:On the inside, it read:
A Waiting Mother is a mother of a truly special nature.
She waits for her children, day after day, with a tenacity that sometimes defies logic.
She waits for her children, because she knows they are coming, somehow, someway.
She waits for her children, because she has no choice, her destiny is to be their mother.
A Waiting Mother is no less a mother, simply because her children are not here.
She carries her children in her heart, and A Waiting Mother knows, it will only be a matter of time until she carries them in her arms.


So to all you, my dearest friends, who are Waiting Mothers, Mothers To Angels, or even if you are no longer waiting, Happy Mother's Day.

Thank you for remembering us on a day like this... You are such an inspiration. After all your losses, to push on, you are a guidepost to where we all want to be going. Thank you for always remembering those who are where you've been... It's a huge reason you're one of the only pregnancy blogs I still read - every time you update.
