Babylost Mother's Day

Today I remember her. For the second time, I recognize a day I wish I didn't know existed, yet because I'm here, in this place, I'm so glad I do. Today is International Babylost Mother's Day. What is it, you ask?

United in grief, we find love and strength.

IBMD recognizes babylost women all over the world as mothers. Just because a woman loses her baby does not mean that she is not a mother anymore. She will be a mother for the rest of her life.
On the first Sunday in May we come together to celebrate our connection, our children and our hope for the future. IBMD is a day for love, peace, remembrance and recognition.
If you know a babylost woman why not tell her today that she is a beautiful mother by sending here one of our flowers from The Rainbow Flower Gallery.

Thank you to all of my sweet friends who sent me one of these flowers. I am so blessed to be a part of this community. We truly are united in grief and united in our love for our children. My dear friend, Kala, surprised me with these beautiful sunflowers today! Seriously, how did I end up with such a wonderful friend living right down the road from me? :-) She also gave me a card with a butterfly and flowers on it that says:

Thinking of you and Lily on the special day,
this day that no one wants to be a part of.
You are strong because you let Him be strong for you.
Happy Babylost Mother's Day.
I love you,

Kala made these delicious cake bakes, which I like to call muffin bites. ;-)
At the end of the night, I lit a candle in honor of Lily. I got a Lily of the Valley scented candle for special occasions such as this.

To all my beautiful friends that had to give their child back, this flower is for you.
