It’s another Mother’s Day at our home and millions of others.  It is such a blessing to be able to celebrate this holiday with two of my children.  I’ll be able to see my third child soon.  We’ll eat a delicious meal and share many memories and laughs together.  Hubby has brought me some gorgeous pink roses, because they’re my favorite!

If I didn’t have chronic illnesses, we would probably picnic and take a hike or eat at a nice restaurant.  But, it’s much easier and less tiring to eat at home.  And, spending time at home is fun.  You know, it doesn’t matter if you suffer with chronic illnesses or not when your family is close.  This is a day to count my blessings and be thankful.

Sometimes Mother’s Day can be a dreaded holiday.  If you have sadness or tragedy on this day, I’m sorry and pray that you find comfort.  There are tough circumstances with motherhood and with infertility.  Having children isn’t easy and I had 6 high-risk pregnancies, with 3 ending in miscarriage.

Whatever your life brings you, I hope and pray that you can enjoy Mother’s Day.

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised” Proverbs 31:30
