"It's Not Fair" by Caitlin Connolly
I have this beautiful painting hanging in my home in a place
where I can look at it each day and ponder the gracious gift
of motherhood that I have been given.
It was painted by my talented friend who is struggling with the
heartache of infertility.
I have many dear girlfriends who, like Caitlin, share this sadness.
Over the years I have wept with them and prayed for them.
Some through amazing, painful and expensive medical treatments
were finally able to experience the miracle of a child.
Others were gifted a child through the blessings of adoption.
And some have remained childless.
I wanted to own this painting to remind me to never forget.
Every Mothers Day I think about these women.
