I overheard someone say when she is asked questions such as, “Have you ever been to Paris?” or “Have you tried parasailing?” instead of a disappointing “No” she would answer, “Not yet!”. That is how I like to think about Mother’s day for those women who have been tying with all their heart to become mothers but haven’t yet gotten there. To those who have miscarried but have nothing to “show” for it. For those who have yet to get pregnant but nothing to “show” for it. To all the “Not yet” mothers, today I celebrate you.
“Do you have any children?”
My heart goes out to you today and I pray that next year at this time you will have motherhood to celebrate!
