No excuses, I was slightly awful and that's that.
This year we're going to early service at church and will get to brunch nice and early and there will be no complaints. I am sharing my Mother's Day this year with my Mother in Law and though I would also like to have my mother present
Mothering is a great joy for me and a privilege as well as a blessing. But during this time I am reminded of the mother's who have lost children, or children who have lost mothers, or are fearing the loss of one. My mind also goes to the women who want a child but can't have one for some reason or other.
I know a few women in this position, and I wish them a Very Happy Mother's Day. They are some of the most loving women I know and they care for others like they had given birth to them themselves. I am blessed to have them in my life, to know their kindness and love and generosity. Thank you doesn't seem enough, but it is sincere and heartfelt.
I wish you all a Happy Mother's Day!
