So while I am incredibly thankful to be celebrating my first Mother's Day today, there is a part of my heart that will always find it hard. It's the part where those dark memories of waiting to become a mother live. It's the part where I hold many of my friends' stories and heartaches. It's impossible to experience this day without remembering those individuals - all of you who still yearn to have the moments of joy that so many mothers take for granted.
I hope you find peace today, whether that means stepping away or surrounding yourself with those you love. I hope you know that I'm thinking of you always. And I hope that this is the last Mother's Day you spend waiting.
