International Bereaved Mothers Day

My friend Sam send me a link on FaceBook to International Bereaved Mothers Day. It was started in 2010 and falls on the first Sunday in May every year. Visit Carly Marie Project Heal for more info.

My heart and my thoughts are with all my friends and readers who have experienced infant or pregnancy loss. The quote on Carly Marie’s blog really resonated with me “The Bereaved Mother has experienced the unimaginable and yet she is still able to walk

You walk because other kids need you to keep going, you walk because the world only acknowledges your pain for a short time and then it keep turning. Sometimes you fall when the pain in too much, but then you get up and you walk again, because you are a woman and because you are strong and beautiful.

Sam lost her little boy last year and I blogged about sending her a hug from far away The world keeps going and these amazing woman keep walking but sometimes they need to know we understand that while on the surface things might look okay, inside they bear a pain we can not even imagine.

My Dearest Sam I hope the shawl hug helps on days like that.
Wish I was closer
Love Pinky
