I’m sure you’ve heard of infertile women complaining about how difficult the holiday is and how they just want to stay home and hide under a blanket. While I completely understand those feelings and admit that I have been less than enthused in the past, this year I’ve decided to approach the day with a more positive attitude. I like moms. So this Mother’s Day instead of dwelling on what you don’t have, why don’t you:
- Enjoy a leisurely breakfast with your husband.
- Write a letter of gratitude to your mom, grandma, or other mothers you admire.
- Go on a bike ride.
- Make a cake.
- Or cupcakes.
- Call a friend you haven’t talked to in a long time.
While Mother’s Day can be a hard day for some, it’s still one of the most important celebrations all year. As a future mother–who happens to be dealing with infertility–I look forward to celebrating motherhood.
