Mother's Day

This weekend marked my husband and my fifth year anniversary as well as Mother's Day.  Last year both of those occasions were passed over and not acknowledged at my own request.  I could not bare to celebrate anything without Bella here.  This year I have allowed people to wish me best wishes for both occasions.  I think that Frank and I need to celebrate or at least acknowledge our anniversary for the fact that we made it through the last year is definately something.  You always here of couples who break up after the loss of a child and I think that Frank and I need eachother now more then ever.  I even am okay with people wishing me a Happy Mother's Day.  Even though it may not be a happy one, I am still the mother of the most beautiful girl in the world and I want the world to know!  I am so proud of Bella now and always will be.

I want to acknowledge all of the amazing mothers out there.  There are so many amazing women who take such great care of thier children each and every day.  Some of those include my sister, family members and many of my friends.  I wish all of you a Happy Day. 

I espacially want to acknowledge all of the amazing mothers who I have met though the Child Loss community.  You are all amazing mothers and mothering a child who is in Heaven is the hardest thing to do.  I want to acknowledge Nadia (Jason's mom), Michelle (Jack's mom), Jennie (Megan's mom),  Susan (Catherine's mom),  Steph (Gavin's mom), Ashley (Beck's mom), Maria (Carlie's mom), and Dianna (Joshua's mom).   I am sorry that we are all part of the Child Loss community but am happy that I have been given the chance to meet both you and your amazing children.  I wish you all a Happy Mother's Day.

And of course, Happy Mother's Day to my mom.  I love you!

I miss you Isabella and know that you are with me today and always.  Thank you for being my little girl.

Thank you Marisa. It is nice to see me being referred to as Catherine's mom here. I know I still am - but it never gets mentioned by other people, or written down.

At our local mum and tot's group there is a signing in book, where you write, your name, your child's name and your relationship to the child. I always write: Susan, Madeleine, Mum. However, lots of mums have siblings, and have all their children's names down. And I am often tempted to write: Susan, Catherine and Madeleine, mum. Because she is always with me. BUT I reckon it would freak the civilians out too much :)

Happy Mothers Day to you too x

Happy Mother's Day Mom, from your special angel above.
I want to say mom, thank you for your unconditional love.
I am sorry mom, that I had to leave you here on earth, you took so much care of me, mom, ever since my birth.
Please mom, it hurts me, to see you sad and cry.
I am really happy mom and I am the beautiful angel in the sky.
I am still here mom, in everything you see and do.
I am the sun shinning in the sky, when it is ever so blue.
I am the birds singing in the light of an early dawn.
I am the sound of raindrops on your window pane.
I am the rainbow at the end of the rain.
I am the butterfly fluttering by with the delicate ease.
I am the sound of wind blowing through the trees.
I am here mom, thinking of you on Mother's Day.

To all moms, from their beautiful angels up in heaven.

I too am pleased, although for terrible circumstances to have met are an amazing person, mother, and Isabella is so lucky to have you.
