Happy un-Mother's Day

Today is a hard day for me. If you've read my Blog, you know I used to be a mother. I'm not sure what I am now, an un-mother? I'll go visit my mum today, and half the known world will be there. As many of my siblings, siblings-in-law, and nieces and nephews as can make it are going to be at mum's for brunch. If everyone shows up, there will be over 50 people altogether. The stars of the show will be Janna and Daniel's three-week old triplets; two boys (identical) and a girl.

After brunch, I'll follow my own tradition of going to visit McKenna. Mr. Potential asked if could join me this year, so it won't be as solitary as it has been. She was the light of my life, and although I still miss her terribly, I know she is in a better place. It was because of her that I was allowed to be honored this day, so it somehow seems fitting to honor her memory today.

I wish all of you mothers a wonderful day. Give each of your kids a hug for me, okay?

I am sad reading this as I read your story. I am sure it is a very difficult day for you.
However, be happy that you have a mom and a large family to share this day with. And of course Mr. Potential.
I do have 2 boys who are my life. But I have no family...my mother is mentally ill and wrote me out years ago. I have lots of hurt about that as well.
I guess Mothers Day brings different feelings for different reasons.
But I feel for you...and I am sorry for your loss.

I read your story about your daughter and it's strange, but I've been thinking about you all morning wondering how you're doing. I believe that even though she is gone I know she will always be in your heart and all around you. You will always be her mother. I'm so glad Mr. Potential will be there to help you through this year. a big hug to you

Julie...I have been thinking about you today. And I wanted to stop by and tell you what a special Mother you have been while you had your precious daughter here. I think the two of you lived more in the short time you had than some do in a lifetime. I'm thrilled that Mr Potential wants to share this time with you....and that you are allowing him into this part of your heart to do that. God bless you. And thank you for all you are to me...and to others here. Know that sharing your story could and has made a difference to many people here in blogland.

First off, a hug.
An easy and gentle hug.
A hug I wish could give you comfort...
and all the warmth you deserve.

I feel honored
to know you as a friend...
and I'm sure many here in blogland
and in the real world feel the same.

You and Mckenna
a special gift
you've given
so beautifully,
to each of us.

A special blessing
and a prayer for you
on this
"Mother's Day."

With love, me

Julz please never consider yourself an un-mother. From reading the story of your daughter I got the impression she was a great girl and you had done a wonderful job raising her. I have to believe that the values and ideals you taught her were passed to her friends. That there were things about her that her friends strive to be like.

Take care

I hope this note finds you just a very busy person and just not able at this time to continue in this blog. I also hope that your spirit is still strong and that your health is well.

One of the problems with this site is that there is difficulty in communicating sometimes with others. So when one person seemingly disapears, there is no way anyone can tell what has happened.
(They may be ill, too busy, on vacation, or just given up on this place.)

I pray for your well being and your happiness.
I pray everything is well with you.
I look forward to your return.
If there is anything I can do for you...
anything at all...
just ask.
hug my friend,
a concerned unlisted

I came to say thanks for commenting on my blog. I read your post about your daughter and it has left me with more than a tear in my eye.
