Meredith: My Thoughts on Mother's Day
It's Mother's Day and all I can think about is how grateful I am to have one happy and healthy child. Sure, it would be nice to have another child in my life to share all of what life has to offer ... but this Mother's Day I am blessed to have my son, Austin.
Every day with him is a joy. Austin brings a light into my life that is indescribable. Every woman should be as lucky as I am to have that same light in their life. As I struggle to get pregnant and have another child, I can't help but think of the women that struggle everyday to become moms. Their sheer will and determination to bring a child into this world should be reason enough to celebrate them as moms. It takes a special kind of woman to persevere through months and months of negative results and emotional ups and downs. So this Mother's Day, I am going to celebrate the moms, moms-to-be, and the wanna-be moms of the world.
While I am eating my Mother's Day eggs (with itsy bitsy shell bits) complements of my son; reading the card that he made for me in class; and getting pummeled with paintballs (his Mother's Day gift to me), I will be sending positive thoughts and energy to the hundreds of thousands of women that are struggling to conceive.
Happy Mother's Day!
What kind of daughter would I be without recognizing my mom Anne? She is strong, beautiful, and such a giving person. I don't know where I would be without her love and support. She has always been there for all of my ups and downs, and I promise to be there for hers. I love you, Mom ... Happy Mother's Day to you, too!
