International Bereaved Mother’s Day 2020

I didn’t even know such a day existed until I was a mom that needed it.

I am a shepherd, wife and mother of four amazing children, three that walk the earth with me and one who lives with Jesus. This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.

  1. There are so very many of us on this painful journey. I have a beautiful daughter and new grandson now to fill my days but I think of Ryan everyday. He left this earth 10/11/17 and yes I hold on to God’s promise to us and can not wait to hug him and hold him once again.

    1. The promise makes the pain bearable but doesn’t erase it. I am so thankful that we will one day be reunited with our children and that everything that has been stolen will be redeemed. What a glorious day! In the meantime, we walk together and link arms lending strength one to the other. May the Lord give you grace for each new day. ❤

  2. I never heard of this before today. I lost my son Matthew in November. I have a daughter Ashley who is here. Without her I don’t know what I would do!! Trying my best to get through the grief.

        Sadly I have been a member of this club for 50 years. I love my beautiful living children and grandchildren beyond belief, but I think about the special little angel –Stephen Brad —
        in Heaven, every day. I can’t talk about him without crying 😢. It’s been 50 years, he was not quite 4 1/2 years old, and I will never…….
        Enough said.
