My First Mothers Day!
3rd April 2011
Today is the first day for the new design of my website "Encouragement for Women". The new design is a present from my 11 month old son for Mother's Day and has taken my husband hours to sort out! Thank you!
Here in England it is Mother's Day and it seems quite fitting that I write my first blog today, when it was the loss of my Mam to cancer that inspired me to start this website. Last year I tried to avoid and forget that it was Mother's Day, as I was filled with sadness and found it hard to focus on all the happy memories I shared with my Mam.
However, this year, despite the loss I still feel, I am so thankful to God that I am now a Mam and that I have been blessed with a beautiful baby boy. I wish my Mam was here to see how amazing he is, but I know that this life is tough and hardships and sorrows come. We just have to keeping on going and remember that God is always with us.
My prayer this year for Mother's Day is that I will be the best Mam I can be to my Son and that he will know he is loved.
I pray for everyone reading this that no matter whether Mother's Day is a joyful or a sorrowful day for you, you will know that God loves you and cares for you individually.
God bless you all.
