The definition of a mother: A female who falls pregnant or gives birth to a child.
Why is it then that women who have lost their babies and children are forgotten on Mothers Day? Why are they not recognized as mothers? If you fall pregnant and your baby dies that does not mean that you are not a mother anymore. You will be a mother for the rest of your life. You will always be your child’s mother. Always and forever.
Today is about recognizing babylost mothers worldwide. Thousands of people from across the globe are attending events today to celebrate babylost mothers. When I started this day last year it was my greatest hope that mothers bereft their babies would feel honoured, recognized and uplifted as they enter the general Mothers Day which ironically was started by bereaved mothers way back before people got lost and forgot the meaning of the day. This day is for us.
Today I hosted an event here in Perth with my girlfriends and babylost sisters at Luminous Light. It was a beautiful morning and we were so honoured and humbled to share in the presence of some truly beautiful mothers. It was so amazing to meet some of the girls who always supported me with love over at my Facebook page too.
I plan to spend the rest of my day lighting candles for us all, I will end this day with a visit to the beach. I am so looking forward to reading all about what everyone got up to.
Whatever you are doing today whether it is attending an event, catching up with your friends or family or even just coming online for some support and love I hope you truly feel honoured and recognized. We are all beautiful mothers. All of us. This flower is for you.
With love and many blessings always,
