My sister-in-law recently shared a post on Facebook that I know wasn’t an easy one for her to do. Mothers’ Day isn’t just about celebrating with your mother, or being celebrated because you are a mother and snuggling or spending time with those sweet little babes, no matter how big or small, you brought into this world. It is so much more than that. It read:
For those who have lost a mother. For the mother who has lost a child. For the one who longs to be a mom.
You are not forgotten this Mother’s Day. You are in my prayers and sending love your way!
This Mother’s Day, I’m showing my appreciation for my mom and mother-in-law, as these two women are truly remarkable. They have been my rock, my go-to for support and full of knowledge for when days are trying.
Yet, I’m able to share successes and big accomplishments with them, and they are our kids’ biggest cheerleaders.
I’m also celebrating my youngest sister whom is a first-time momma, to a sweet little girl named Ellie, and to my middle sister whom is expecting their second child in September.
My heart and prayers go out to some of my family members, whom have been trying to become a mom for the third time. The hope and pain you are faced with each day, can’t possibly be understood by anyone other than someone else who has gone through the same.
My excitement goes out to my husband’s cousin who is experiencing her first Mother’s Day, with a non-biological child, and several cousins who brought home their first child.
I pray that those whom have lost a mother, are able to hold onto memories, and somehow, someway, find a way to be at peace.
I pray for the mother who has lost a grown child, that she is able to find ways to cope with her sadness and find outlets to be comforted by.
And to my sister-in-law, and some dear close friends, whom have given birth to stillborns. May you find ways to support other women and come together and form connections with one-another who are going through the similar heartache as you.
I hope for my parents, whom still have both their mother’s, truly appreciate how lucky they still are to have these two kind-hearted, women in their life.
At least in my house, mom’s are often the person that is up the latest, making sure the clothes are clean for the next day. The one making sure the kids have outfits laid out for the week, or that all items are in the backpack for school the next day.
Moms are the one that make the grocery list, do the grocery shopping and most of the meal-prep. The mom in our house is the one that often times finds the way to make two fighting kids, appreciate each other again.
The one who keeps the house clean. Pays the bills. Plans the birthday party. Knows when all the birthday’s are. The mom in our house tries her best to make sure everyone is happy. The mom in this house is there for when her kids’ just need a hug, a smile or to be told they are loved.
The mom in this house, kisses the knee that has been freshly scraped on the concrete.
The mom in our house, gives herself grace and understands there are going to be good days where we feel like we have it all together, and days that we feel like nothing is together.
This Mother’s Day, celebrate ALL mother’s in your life. And help ensure they give themselves grace.

Happy Mother's Day Fri, 07 May 2021 07:00:00 -0700-DOUG JESSOP'S JESSOP'S JOURNAL – ABC4 NEWS – SALT LAKE CITY, UT) Happy Mother's Day. In this episode of Jessop's Journal I had the pleasure to …
Kayla Glines is a triplet. What makes her different is that she had triplets. But then she had quadruplets!
Kayla has an incredible attitude. She came to our interview wearing a shirt with the phrase “Good Vibes” on it. Her enthusiasm and smile are quite contagious.
I don’t want to give away everything in the interview (yes – I want you to WATCH AND SHARE). I will say that there is a show on TV called “This is Us” that has some very interesting parallels.
Come to find out that Kayla and her husband had been trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant for ten years. They did fertility treatments and hit the jackpot with triplets. On an incredible sidenote, the next pregnancy did NOT use any fertility treatments…and she had quadruplets. Yes…one pregnancy and four kids.
If anyone from Huggies is watching this story, hint, hint, Kayla buys two large boxes of diapers from Costco every week. The boxes have 150 diapers in them. Math is not my strong suit, but that is a lot of diapers to go through in one week!
As you can imagine, getting a picture together with all of their kids is pretty much like herding cats. But I will say, they turned out pretty cute.
What gives her joy? Seeing the look of her children on Christmas morning! What keeps her up at night? Worrying about her $4.5 Million dollar baby (watch the story for details).
To all the Mother’s out there, thank you for what you do.
Consider this your personal invitation to watch this entire episode of Jessop’s Journal and share it with a Mother you knw.
Everyone has a story. I strongly feel that “stories have power”. Chances are that if you are going through something, that someone else probably has as well. The shared experiences we humans have can help each other. That my friend makes the point that stories “help us understand each other.”
You don’t have to agree with everyone, but in my opinion, if people would take more time getting to knowing more about others and where they are coming from, we just might find out that we have more similarities than differences.
Jessop’s Journal is something special when it comes to broadcast news. I have the honor of being able to do longer in-depth interviews that you don’t normally see with people from all walks of life. A big shout out goes to my collaborator, Ed Wilets, who does a great job as my videographer/editor for all my stories. Your feedback is always welcome at DJessop@abc4.com
