I had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday full of gifts, notes & videos sent to me throughout the day. I’m so blessed to have such a loving husband & awesome kids to spoil me! As I look back over the years, it is truly amazing that I am able to celebrate this day as a mom. I love Mother’s Day now for the simple fact that there was a time I hated to see it come. It took a lot for me to become a mother and although it is not something I dwell on anymore I have not forgotten. The tests and treatments, the injections and procedures, and perhaps the worst, the waiting and uncertainty during those years are engraved upon my memory. I went through 3 IUI cycles to become pregnant with my first daughter and during that pregnancy lost a twin. Then years later went though 4 IVF cycles to conceive our second daughter again suffering a loss during the journey. Last year we welcomed a miracle baby boy conceived a la natural (imagine our surprise!). So for me it is a well deserved day of celebration. A celebration of hope, love, diligence & life for which I am so very grateful.
Happy Mother’s Day Everyone!
