Several years ago, I wrote this poem about my feelings about Mother’s Day. Since then, this day has been one of my most difficult days. In recent times, I have found resources to help me. There is a book written by Jody Day entitled Living the Life Unexpected. If you are childless, I would encourage you to read it. I am working my way through it right now.
In the meantime, Happy Non-Mother’s Day to all childless women, whether you choose to be or not. I found this article that I wanted to share with all of you. If you’re like me, childless, and Mother’s Day is the most painful day of the year, then you need to read this.
Remember, you are not alone. There are a lot of us out there that are just like you.
