Mother's Day Just the Same

Real Estate Broker/Owner with 3:16 team REALTY ~ Locally-owned Frisco TX Real Estate Co. #9001154

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there. A BIG SHOUT OUT to you for what you do, especially for your family and children.

This year, my Mother's Day salute, I'd want to remember Mother's Day isn't always a happy day for ALL MOTHERS. The pain and the grief I too, once experienced.

I know my mother will be thinking about her mother on Mother's Day. My mother lost her mom on Mother's Day unexpectedly several years ago. I think my mother has never gotten over it. I guess no one will, especially when my mother is such a loving person.

As for me, Mother's Day didn't really hit me until Saturday - the day before. While I am a mother of a healthy, active 3 1/2 year old, I can't help but to realize how much emotions went through me on Saturday thinking about the little 8-week old in my tummy that never made it. Yes, I miscarried earlier this year.

It took me a while to recover but I finally came around to it when I realized that every day of our lives is numbered. Even for the 8-week old in a womb.

God sends missions in life and when He thinks your mission is accomplished, He will take you home.

My baby - although I can never understand why - is accomplished at a tender 8-week in a womb.

As it was made clear - perhaps this little baby's mission has completed at 8 weeks old in his mummy's tummy. It's hard to comprehend and I always catch myself trying to understand God's "whys".... I may never understand Why but I know I have to accept. It's been sometime now and I'm doing better every day. Yes, I still have my moments. And the moments seem easier to pass by. With other things in my life right now, I haven't quite had a moment in a while. But the moment came back today - the day before Mother's Day.


Just the Same...

I never got to hold you & bounce you on my lap, I never got to read to you or watch you as you nap. You slipped away so quickly, before I said your name. And yet I want the world to know I loved you just the same...

Anne Peterson

I'm also taking a full Sunday off from here because I'm going to need some time to soak in my moment again on Mother's Day. So, this is an early Mother's Day good wishes for all the mothers out there. Your gift is priceless.


Scripture of the Week:

God can do anything you know - far more than you could even imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.

Ephesians 3:20

It is difficult sometimes to know that there is a reason for everything....and know that there is another child in your future...who is whole, healthy and complete and will bring your family joyous memories for a lifetime.

Loreena, acceptance is easier than understanding although acceptance is sometimes very difficult. My wish for you this Mother's Day is that you feel lighter by the day's end. God Bless.

Thanks for the thoughtful post.  Today is my due date and while this was honestly just another day in which I was a mother to a cranky 20 month old, a talkative six year old, laundry folder, tooshie wiper, lunch maker, it makes me realize how much I need God to keep me centered.  Take care of yourself :)

Hi Loreena,

Why do so many of your posts bring a tear to my eye?

I very much enjoyed your husband's tribute to you yesterday. (I am pretty sure it was him)

Loreena, just catching up with you, so sorry to be late.  I know and you KNOW that one day you will see that baby, so we have that hope and knowledge.  And in Psalm 139 where it talks about us being fearfully and wonderfully made, it also says that EVERY day of our lives was written before it came to be.  So you can also rest assured that every day of those eight weeks counted for something!
