Mother's Day

Mother's Day is really bittersweet for me.  Cora's due date, May 14th, was Mother's Day that year, so whenever anyone asked when I was due, I always answered "On Mother's Day!"  I was so thrilled.  Of course that day ended up being really hard because it was just a reminder of what should have been when my loss was so fresh.

But the truth is, Cora made me a mother.  Regardless of the fact that she didn't stay for me to actually mother.  I am a mother, first and foremost because of her.  Even if I didn't have my other children, I would be a mother because of her.

So I celebrate her on Mother's Day.  I wasn't a mother before she came along, and I was after.


  1. *tears*
    sending you lots of love my friend

  2. That picture of you and sweet Cora looks almost identical to one that was taken of Preslie and I. It's amazing how feelings just rushed back into me. My heart breaks for you! Can't wait to see you in heaven with your angel!
