As families celebrate Mother's Day here in the United States, my heart is heavy for those who have lost a child, or who have never been able to conceive a child of their own. God gave us a natural instinct to be mothers, and when we lose a child, or cannot have children of our own, it hurts--BADLY.
This is my first Mother's Day without Ethan. I am sad. I'm also sad for the beautiful ladies that I have known (before Ethan passing), and now know through losing Ethan, who have been through the sadness my family and I have endured.
For all of you out there that are bereaved, my heart is truly heavy, and I have prayed for you all. For those who have never been able to have children of their own, my heart also is heavy for you all, and I have prayed, and have also become ever so more appreciative that I've been blessed with Ethan and Evan. I have experienced what some never get to experience, and so badly want with every ounce of their being--bearing children.
For those who have never lost a child or have not had fertility issues, please keep a watchful eye out today, and always, because the holidays truly are difficult. If we could step outside of ourselves and have compassion for others, well let's just say it could make someones sad heart feel better.
The holidays...it's another reminder that the one we love isn't here on earth any longer. But I trust my God. He holds my son now, and because of my faith and the promise of eternity (through Jesus paying it all on the Cross), I have hope to see my son again! Thank you Jesus!
