As we head into Mother’s Day weekend, I am keenly aware of how difficult this day is for those battling infertility. Here’s a list of ideas on how to survive Mother’s Day while living with infertility, developed with the help of some beautiful women I know who are walking this path right now.
Celebrate your mother/ grandmother (giving honor)
Send cards to your friends who are mothers (loving others)
Do something for yourself you can’t do while pregnant (loving yourself)
Jump on your bed, dance freely, take a run – release the painful emotions through hard activity (express your pain).
Skip church and do something fun with your husband instead (protect your heart).
Plant a tree or flowering bush (build memorials).
Do you have any other ideas? If so, drop them in the comments below.
