Happy Mother’s Day

I’ve been dreading this day for the past week. Mostly because of the non-stop commercials.  Now that it’s here it’s not that bad.  I wish that today would have started with Chris getting up and taking care of Aidan while I slept in. Instead Chris is still asleep and I’ve been up since 8.  I was so worried that I would be forgotten today because I don’t have an earth baby.  I may not have an earth baby, but I still got to take care of my baby.  I got hold Aidan’s hand, give him milk on a q-tip, change his diaper, take his temperature and give him massages. I read him stories, sang him songs and loved on him.  I got to rock him, rub his back kiss his head and tell him that I love him. I did something that all mom’s do. I made the best decision for him even though it was the worst decision for me. I was able to hold him as he took his last breaths and we were the last thing he saw before he passed. I woke up this morning and had a lot of messages on facebook wishing me a happy mother’s day and that means a lot to me. 

The girls on my local message board sent my flowers. It was very unexpected and very much appreciated.DSC00346

I’m part of another message board and we had a gift exchange. My person sent me a beautiful necklace and my favorite candy, Riesen chocolate chews.


The necklace says Hope and has a dove on it. I love it!

My mom and I spent the day together yesterday and before I left she gave me these..


And to think, I was afraid that I would be forgotten.  I feel very blessed.

So Happy Mother’s day to all the moms, moms-to-be and moms to angels.  If you know someone that has had a loss at any time, please take the time today and send them a message.

I love you Aidan Christopher and I’m so happy that I’m your mom and you’re my son!

  3. Today at church the priest did a blessing to all the moms and he made sure to mention moms who have lost a child. I thought of you :) Happy Mother's Day!!

  5. I love the new look of the blog, maggie! Who took that picture? It's beautiful!

    You are a wonderful mommy. Happy Mother's Day!

  6. I just wanted to say - the names I did the first time, like Aidan's, were at a different time of day and on a busier part of the beach, so they have footprints and other "flaws" in the sand. I was going to re-do them when I found the smoother beach and ran out of time so I couldn't. But in retrospect I LOVE the ones that have the "flaws" - they look so full of live and love, it's like the baby is a part of life and the world. I don't know if that makes sense when I write it out, but thought I'd try to share the thought even if it doesn't come across right. :)
