Wanted to wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day before this day got away from me. For years I have struggled with this day. It’s a combinations of unmet expectations and always feeling incomplete, and I know I’m not alone. It’s such a special day and a hard day for so many. The key for me has been turning my thoughts outward: calling or texting a friend who might be missing their own mom on Mother’s Day, or celebrating the village that helps lighten your load as a mom, or just enjoying time with your son’s special birth mom and her family. We have all been so blessed by Mothers in different ways, and I’m so thankful.
We made a simple flower arrangement for my mom with my MOST FAVORITE flowers – ranunculus, and I love them so much. A simple tin can for a vase, spray painted for a POP of color is so easy and so cute! Hang onto those tall empty cans for this simple DIY project.
To those who have lost children, who have lost mothers, to those with strained mother relationships or strained child relationships, to those who chose not to be a mother and those still yearning to be a mother. Our hearts are with you on Mother’s Day, may you find the joy and love in this day that you seek.
