Hey Pie-O-Neers™! I hope you are having an AMAZING day! We're almost to the weekend! Yassssssss! Today we are introducing our segment, "Cherrie On Top Thursdays ™ ", where some like it bitter and some like it sweet! However it comes out, Ms. Cherrie Lane™ is going to see to it that it is a TASTY slice of humble pie for you to eat!
This piece of pie that she is about to serve is HEAVENLY! Cherrie Lane is acknowledging those dear Mothers, whose baby or babies have gained their wings and are filling their little tummies with all of the PIES IN THE SKY™!
Now... sink your teeth into this slice of pie!
I'm always torn on Mother's Day on whether or not I should be celebrated. Is a mother who was unable to carry her children full-term still a mom?
The longest I carried any of my children was close to 24 weeks. Four out of my five losses were natural deliveries but didn't survive. I still carry that pain. The fifth loss was just as painful as I was pregnant for only 5 short weeks.
It was weird because just as soon as I celebrated my joy of being pregnant, Father's Day weekend came around and I found myself being rushed to the hospital because the baby didn't make it.
There I was again, a childless mom. I felt empty. I felt numb. I felt as though my entire world came crashing down. How do I dust myself off and try again? Should I put myself through that pain? Why do I keep losing?
That heartache was just as great as the labor pains and it lasted much longer. I was in and out of the hospital in 24 hours but the residue left a long-term scar that leads me to ask if I'm still a mom?
I gave up for a while but my spirit says keep fighting and while I'm not pregnant yet, I'll simply keep trying.
