    I just wanted to send you all a hug.

    My eldest would have been a teenager now had things gone to plan. But he/she wasn't meant to be and neither were all the others :(

    My hubby bought me Adele's album yesterday and I've just sat her and listened to it the whole way through. It's a beautiful album, but it really did get me thinking ... perhaps a little too deeply.

    As the years roll by it gets more and more difficult knowing how we are missing out on having children of our own in our lives. Today for me just makes me feel like a failure :(

    So again, massive hugs and understanding to all of you out there feeling the same today, you're not alone xxxx

    That's very sweet of you folks and thank you.

    But truthfully I'd of kept it to myself except that I know that for many people their family and friends won't understand why today is not a nice day for them. Hope that makes sense. I just wanted others to know they aren't alone today I guess.

    That must have taken quite an effort for you to post your message – it shows strength of character that you can think and offer a kind word to others when you obviously feel down yourself so thank you for sharing that with us.

    Life is a learning curve and full of hurdles for everyone, however, no one is a failure.

    The warmest hug from me – did you feel it? :smile:

    I think it is even harder for some people to cope with mothers day,not only with their emotional feelings,but because everywhere you turn,it is in your face,it is way over the top for me and I told my kids yesterday they don't have to rush out and buy something because they feel they need to,its the stuff they do all year that tells me they love me,so one son mowed the grass and the other helped do the weekly shop and put it away!

    Hugs to everyone that is struggling today for whatever reasonsxx

    Any one who can think of comforting others when they themselves are hurting can never be judged as a failure. [​IMG]

    It's a bittersweet day for my eldest sis, who lost baby Niamh on April 9th, 41 weeks pregnant and two days before she was delivered. Thankfully she has baby Holly in her arms now, born March 3rd but Niamh will always weigh heavily on the heart of all our family. My heart goes out to everyone that knows the loss of a child and lots of hugs for this difficult day.

    ((((hugs)))) to all those that need them today.

    I should have 4 cards but I only have 1. Mothers day always hits home that fact.

    My step mum has neither of her 2 boys here anymore :( and she struggles for the weeks running up as its everywhere you turn, on tv, radio in supermarkets etc.

    And also my friends first anniversary <3
     
  17. Sending you a hug ((((Auriala)))))) chin up! things may start to look up soon, NOT suggesting that ANYTHING can compensate grief through loss of a loved one by saying that.
