Mother's Day blues

Is anyone feeling down about mother's day besides me?? I went to church this morning and it was all about the wonderfulness of motherhood. Two women sang (really well) Jann Arden's song "Good Mother". It was all I could do to keep it together. Then a woman in the back row broke down in sobs. I don't know why -- I don't know her. But then I couldn't hold back my own tears.

Anyway, I'm going to have a quiet non-Mother's day evening with my DH.

You are definitely not the only one! I went to church also today and they were having baby dedication. My good friend who conceived her daughter by IVF last year was on stage with her baby. It was very emotional because I was so proud of her for what she went through, but it was also very difficult to see all the babies up there. They also had all of the mothers to stand up and acknowledged them. Honestly it seemed like I was the only woman sitting down....

I am looking forward to celebrating mother's day next year with a baby in my arms or one in my belly! Hang in there ladies!
