Happy Survivor’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day for those of you whose experience with motherhood has mostly been fulfilling and joyful.

For the rest of us, those of us whose motherhood has been mostly filled with loss in the many forms it can take, let us acknowledge today as our Survivor’s Day.

I honor you and celebrate you, dear soul sister and fellow survivor.  May your day be filled with all the peace and grace you’ll need to keep on surviving until you find the place where you can begin to thrive.

It’s not over until it’s over, and we’ve as much right to expect to thrive as anyone else does, no matter what we’ve been through – and no matter what we’ve been told, verbally and non-verbally, and no matter what we may have even told ourselves.

Please, be kind to yourself.  When it all comes down to it, today’s just another day and holds as many possibilities as any other day.  As for me, I’ll be looking for miracles and thinking of you.
