As Mother's Day approaches I am having a hard time dealing with all my feelings. At our church this Sunday is Baby Dedication Day (Baptist Church) and my sister's baby is being dedicated that day. My son Jonathan would have also been dedicated. I told my sister that I don't think I can attend. It's just too painful. Also, on Sunday many churches recognize mother's with the most children.....I can't bare to sit through that. i have decided to skip the Church scene on Sunday. I know this sounds bad...my sister's first baby is being dedicated and I have chosen to not attend. I don't know what my parents are going to say or my husband. I didn't mention it to my husband, because he will insist that we go. Things like this don't bother him and he thinks it shouldn't bother me. I'm afraid of the backlash that I will receive from not attending. How do I deal with it and what do I say?

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
