For many women it is a happy day where they are celebrated and loved that wee bit extra.
Happy Mother’s Day to you!
…but, if your arms are empty, or if your womb and your heart has only known loss, if you are grieving a child, grieving a mother, grieving any woman who has loved you like a mother, if you are a mum who has fallen again, and again—who knows bitter disappointment, shame and failure as friends, then I send you love today.
For the fathers who have to be mothers, too—you are doing just fine.
For the grannies, that are mums again, for the stepmums who have had to step into new shoes—you are doing just fine.
