For some mothers around the world, today brings sadness and pain. Memories surface that would rather be forgotten. They would rather spend the day in bed, under the covers than have to hear the laughter and happiness of family gatherings, as they celebrate over lunch together.
If this is you, then please allow me to love you for just a moment.
Some of you beautiful mothers out there have been left alone. You have raised your children and they have forgotten about you. They never really appreciated all you did for them. You sacrificed a lot and they still have little clue about that.
I know that some of you Mummy's out there have had your precious children taken from you and this day is one of deep pain, not of joy. This day is a reminder of your loss and is full of grief and sadness.
There are those of you mothers who have husbands who just don't make the effort to teach your little ones how to appreciate you and spoil you on this special day and you are feeling quietly hurt. You woke up feeling hopeful of gifts and your were let down. Again.
There are countless reasons that you are hurting today (there are more hurting women out there today than we realise) so I personally want to send these beautiful roses to you and tell you that I love you. I know what you have done and appreciate you. I feel your pain, your anguish and see your tears. I may never understand your grief but I would love to hold your hand right now and send you my love. You may not know me but I am a mum, so I know you.
Please know that are loved, you are respected, you are remembered, you are appreciated and you will never be forgotten.
