Happy Friday, beauties! We made it through another week! So grateful 🙂
My Mama came into town last night, right in time for Mother’s Day. My Mommy is one of my best friends. I talk to her 2-3 times a DAY lol. She’s here for a wedding but will be back at my house on Sunday for Mother’s Day lunch and I am SUPER excited to celebrate her and my Mother in law for all they have done for us. Both of these amazing women are some of the most selfless and gracious women I know and I hope to grow in their example and be an amazing Mom like they are.
Now that I’ve been a Mommy for a couple years, I appreciate even more than I did before all that my Mother endured for me and my siblings. Mothers really are super heroes, super women — just SUPER. But this holiday is not always the easiest for a lot of people. I was challenged recently by a fellow blogger to start thinking of some of the women who may find this time of year especially difficult. So I started to think of all the women who are not in the best position to be celebrated and I wanted to remind them that this Sunday, I am thinking of and praying for YOU:
To the Mother who is busy making sure all the Mothers around her have a great day, Happy Mother’s Day.
To the Mother whose strained relationship with her Mother puts a damper on this holiday, Happy Mother’s Day.
To the Mother whose difficult relationship with her own children makes her feel like less than a Mother, Happy Mother’s Day.
To the Mother who can’t have children of her own but has raised others, Happy Mother’s Day.
To the Mother who can’t spend this day with her kids, Happy Mother’s Day.
To the single Mother whose children are too young to say it themselves, Happy Mother’s Day.
To the Mother whose children are no longer with us to honor you, Happy Mother’s Day.
To the Mother whose family is too preoccupied with their own lives to take time out to appreciate you, Happy Mother’s Day.
To the Mother whose child or children can’t be with them this Sunday for whatever reason, Happy Mother’s Day.
To the Mother whose spouse has passed away and can’t help in honoring you, Happy Mother’s Day.
To the Mother whose own Mother has passed away, Happy Mother’s Day.
To ALL Mothers, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
I hope every Mama reading this feels loved and appreciated. You are enough. You’re doing an awesome job. You are the BEST for your family. Be encouraged!
