Some of you enjoyed breakfast in bed this morning. Some of you are surrounded by fresh flowers (either store-bought, or the hand-picked-by-a-4-year-old variety, as pictured below). Some of you are smiling and hugging and laughing with the ones you love. May you breathe deeply the joy that is all around you today.
But I’m sure some of you are having trouble hearing “Happy” and “Mother’s Day” in the same sentence. Some of you are wondering why life has turned out the way it has, desired children still unborn, or little ones—or your own mom—gone too soon. May you feel peace and comfort in remembering today. And if you know the Good Shepherd, may you rest in the hope that He brings!
To my momma, since I can’t call you today, just wanted to say again thank you. So much of who I am and what I do came straight from you. I love you and miss you!
