As we approach Mother’s Day, I am filled with mixed emotions, this year more than others, because some dear people I love greatly suffered great loss this past year that I know will bring both tears and bittersweet joy this Mother’s Day. When I read this post by my friend Stefanie Morgan, I knew it conveyed my heart to these hurting moms and families better than I ever could. With her permission, I am sharing it here with all of you.
If you are a hurting mom, may you find comfort in the words of truth spoken here. If you, like me, minister to those who hurt, I hope that just as I did you find the words here to say what your heart is feeling. For all of us, may we remember to give our mothers, no matter where they are, physically or emotionally, our love and appreciation this weekend.
