On Mothers and Mary
{Mondays in May: Honoring Mary series}

First of all, a day-late Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful mother and mother-in-law (or mother-in-love, as I prefer). I am so blessed to have a mother whom I so dearly love and admire. She is a champion of support for me to this day, and I am so grateful God chose her for me. Michael's mom is a gift to me, too - not only in the love she has shown me, but in the wonderful man she raised who is now my dear husband. What a blessing! Thank you, Lord, for mothers.

Yesterday was also my first Mother's Day. My sweet baby is already in heaven with our Lord. I found myself wishing our Thomas Gianna was still growing in my womb. I was filled with so much sadness. Michael made it a special day for me, which was very sweet. We both have great hope that one day we might be able to celebrate Mother's Day with a child - or, God-willing - children.

Mary, our Lord's mother, knows all too well the sadness of losing a child. I find myself turning to her, and asking her to intercede for me. I love this image of Our Lady of Sorrows, her eyes heavenward.
Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

When in your life have you turned to Mary?

I hope you will join me for the Marian linkup I am hosting beginning May 26!

  1. LOVE those pictures of you and your moms... So darling. <3

    I've only recently come to know Mary on a more personal level, but I don't think there was one MAJOR time I turned to her. I've just started digging through books, especially after hearing of JPII's "to Jesus through Mary."

    God bless!

  2. Lovely, my friend...
    I prayed for you and for all women who have an ache in their hearts this Mother's Day...
    How very wonderful the love you have for you hubby's mother...
    Blessings! : )


I would love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to leave a note.
