It was a bit strange taking ten days off from posting, when I had been posting six days a week for the entire month of April. I sort of needed it to relax and catch up on my sleep though. There has been a lot going on that I can't talk about just yet, but there's more good than bad. The good always outweighs the bad.
Hopefully I will be back to posting regularly again. My goal is to post every Monday and Thursday. Mondays will be dedicated to the Tough Topics series and Thursdays will be for whatever my brain comes up with next.
My boyfriend works over night tonight and tomorrow night, plus I have a short day shift on Wednesday. My plan is to use that all to my advantage and prewrite as many posts as I can so that they are scheduled to go up and that I won't miss a day. If I do miss a day, somebody needs to yell at me.
But all of that aside, I wanted to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day.
Whether you're a biological mom, you adopted, you're fostering, you're a step mother, you're a dad who has to fill both roles, or something else- I hope you had a wonderful day and got to spend it with you child(ren).
And for those of you who have lost their mother, or lost a child (born or unborn), I want you to know that somebody cares and understands. I know words on a screen can't magically make you feel better, but you will get through this. You just have to stick around long enough to see the amazing things yet to come.
