From Anne Fitzgerald, Executive Director
Moms, we all have those moments. You know what I mean…those moments. The ones where your kid shouts out something completely inappropriate at the grocery store. The ones where they are all dolled up and ready for a big occasion and somehow manage, within a nanosecond of turning your head, to completely destroy the cute little outfit they are in, en route to said occasion. The ones where they get into the jelly, toothpaste, diaper cream, and make a masterpiece all over the house. Those moments we try to laugh so we don’t cry and know in our hearts, we aren’t alone.
Then there are those other moments. The ones that give us the greatest joy. The simple moments that reassure us we are doing our best. The ones where your kiddo unexpectedly grabs your hand just because. Or they run up and jump into your arms. Those sweet pictures they draw. And, the moment that melt every moms heart, when they say, “I love you,” just because.
This month we commemorate the beautiful gift of motherhood; a gift worth celebrating. And we celebrate all moms — birth moms, adoptive mom, foster moms, mom moms. Thank you for choosing life. Thank you for being a mom.
We also want to thank all those on the front lines who help the moms become moms. Prolife advocates are a great gift and treasure to the women who struggle most.
Pregnancy resource centers are critical. So this month, we’d like for you to consider how you can help them. A donation of time, money, or resources goes a long way.
Please share with us your stories of how you have helped a mom in need over on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/dayoftears.
Thank you for all that you do!
