I have been thinking of you all especially today. I realized that bereaved mommies and daddies should have their own special day. Being a mommy to an angel(s) is so much harder than being a mom to a living child. Somehow we all wake up and get through the day minute by minute or hour by hour we make it through to the next day. Stupid and ignorant comments from those around us, pregnant women, child abuse, movies, tv, and everything else that happens daily and somehow we still wake up the next day just to endure it again. Then there is the relationship with the daddy since usually men grieve differently, eventually ttc when all you can think of is you shouldn't have to be, and of course the housework doesn't do itself. Mommies like us somehow get through each and every day, we try to put on a smile for others, we try not to hurt others feelings or feel bad when we do, and yet we go without any recognition or a special day. I declare a special day for the mommies and daddies of angels! We go through so much more and appreciate the small things that so many people take for granted and yet we do it all and never get a day off from our jobs as a mommy of an angel. We all know the pain of labor, even greater pain of making our babies funeral arrangements, and deciding if you want an autopsy. All of these things that nobody else can "imagine" doing, but they get a special day. My hat goes off to all of you! You are all amazing mommies and I am proud of you all for everything you do and go through each and every day. Happy Mothers Day to the greatest mommies I know!!
Pregnancy mentioneddon't read any further if it will upset you)
I think mothers day is a joke because I don't need a special day or a day off from hannah or a special gift. My gift is seeing her smile at me each and every morning. I don't know if I would feel this way if it wasn't for Abby or not, but I know that Abby has taught me so much in her short 7 months with me. I love her for all that she has taught me.
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
It is very tough being a mommy to an angel. And yes, there may be pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day, but it's not a well enough known day. I had no idea it existed before I had Katrina and didn't know about it for quite a while after I had her either.
So thanks for this post, Rhonda
Funny how the only people who recognized me on Mother's Day (other than Jonny and close family) was you JM girls. So that I thank you all for that.
