I wrote a long post about Mother’s Day and then I deleted it. I don’t need to write a post about Mother’s Day. There are so many GREAT posts out there. So I’m going to share. I hope you will take the time to read all or some of these. Especially if you are in church ministry or in charge of any type of Mother’s Day planning~these are must read.
The important thing to remember is this: Mom’s don’t want fancy earrings and huge bouquets. We don’t want our family in debt for one day. We want happy, healthy loving families around us. We want to laugh and share and eat and nap. We love those handprint cards and the homemade coupons. We get excited for burnt toast in bed and sticky fingers on our Sunday dresses. We love to see our children thrive and live and love. That’s all we really want for Mother’s Day. That’s all I want for all my friends.
And to those of my family and friends whose mom is gone~I mourn with you. I share your tears. I miss your moms too.
To those of my friends and family who cannot or have not yet had children, I thank you for the sacrifice that you made in order to mother and mentor me and my children. It has not gone unnoticed and I love you for it.
To all of you for whom Mother’s Day is a sad and lonely time, I send my love and warm hugs to you …..read this:
