This post is for you if Mothers’ Day is…well…not what it should be. Not what it could be. Not what it was before.
Maybe you don’t have a Mom to celebrate with here on Earth. To you, I say you are loved. And I am sorry. It’s OK to not be OK. Each year will feel different as you grow and heal. But your family is by your side, growing and healing with you. You are not alone.
Maybe you would like to be a Mom, but for whatever reason, life has not begun inside you. To you, I say you are loved and I pray that God surrounds you with an extra measure of grace this weekend. Do not lose heart, dear one. Do not lose heart.
Maybe you are a Mom, a mom to angel babies that you never held in your arms, but will forever hold in your heart. To you, I say you are loved and are still a mom, even though you may not be changing diapers or struggling to load your brood into the car. Your babies experienced so much love in the short time they were here on earth.
Maybe you are a Mom in the waiting to a precious treasure. A little one is coming to you, a little one that someone else brought into the world, but can’t walk with anymore. To you I say you are loved, and I pray endurance for you for the road ahead and that your home will be blessed with love and laughter in the years to come.
Maybe you are a Mom and have a Mom, but there are hurts. Hurts that sometimes feel too deep to overcome. To you, I say you are loved, and I pray time and mercy would do their work in your life.
To all Moms, you are loved. You are appreciated. You are treasured and valued. We are what we are today because of you. In whatever way you need, I pray your day is beautiful.
Beautiful like you.
