Happy Mother's Day!
I'd like to wish all of the moms among my readers a very happy and blessed Mother's Day! I hope you get to spend the day doing something you enjoy and perhaps celebrating with some of your children if that is possible. Being a mother is a privilege but such a challenge as well.
For those who are hurting today ... and I know Mother's Day can be difficult for many reasons ... please know that God sees and understands, and wants to comfort and bless you today.
As I mentioned last year, I really think that we need to celebrate all ladies on this special day,
because even though some may not have borne children of our own, we all
have had opportunities to nurture others in one way or another. In fact, God's plan is that older women will teach the younger ones many important things and will nurture them in the faith. As I like to remind the ladies in my Sunday School class, each of us is older spiritually or physically than someone else. Teen girls can be an example to younger ones, for example. My own daughters were so blessed as little girls to have teen girls to look up to -- and those teens set a very good example indeed. History repeated itself, and as teenagers themselves, my girls found themselves being looked up to by littler girls.
So wherever this finds you today -- if you are a mom, a grandmother, or a nurturer -- a most blessed Mother's Day to you!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
