Mother’s Day

Today we celebrated Mother’s Day. Rick and Sean gave me beautiful cards and yesterday we planted some beautiful hydrangea bushes that I have been wanting for my prayer garden. Today we had lunch with a couple I consider our spiritual parents. It was a very nice day and it was very special to be with the people I love.

Of course it was also bittersweet as I was missing Tonia so very much. It made me very aware of people around me who were not celebrating today with their entire hearts. Mothers who are not in touch with their children because of problems in the family, mothers who have lost children even before they were born, women who have lost their mothers and women who have never had their own children. This day is a beautiful occasion to honor the women in our lives who have loved us and nurtured us. But it can also be a day when tears are very close to the surface and life doesn’t seem quite fair or normal. I get this for the very first time in my life.

So today I would like to send a hug to women every where; just because you are a very special child of God. Women have a very special place in God’s plan for this world. So today I want to say Happy Mother’s Day but I also want to say I am glad to know all of the women in my life and I thank you for being a part of my life.
