The sentiment is loving and caring, but sometimes it simply
hurts. For those I know who have suffered the pain of miscarriage or
infertility, or broken relationships with their children or with their mothers,
this day can be so painful it is to be avoided at all costs.
I scanned the Facebook pages yesterday, there were wonderful tributes to
mothers. Pictures of smiling faces, perhaps happier times or blessed memories,
filled the day.
me, I cannot say it was a painful day, but a somewhat melancholy one. My own
dear mother and greatest cheerleader has been dead for almost eight years
(huh?!?!) and my beloved grandma thirty-one (my word!).
And I still miss them both, every day!
as I am reminded each Mother’s Day, ALL women play a mothering role to someone.
Aunts, Cousins, Step-Mothers, God-mothers, Sisters, Daughters, Girlfriends, are
all women to be celebrated, cared for by, and looked up to. And it doesn’t take a
special day to remember and honor them - PLEASE do so today, too!
just so you men don’t feel left out, your day is coming soon. J
