SOME WIVES ARE NOT MOTHERS
I know this because of hearing from so many women who read articles I have written or have heard me speak at a conference they've attended. They write to me. They tell me.
I don't believe that those of us who have NOT lost our mothers, who have NOT struggled with infertility, who have NOT experienced the loss of a child should be thought insensitive because we celebrate the blessings God has given us. Every one of us - even those who cannot celebrate on Mother's Day - have countless blessings to thank God for.
But... Mother's Day can be a really difficult day for more women than you might think.
You might include a motherless woman in your family's celebration.
If she is someone who loves YOUR children, you might have them write a thank-you card, or give a gift of thanks.
Life is difficult enough, and Mother's Day is an especially difficult one for many wonderful women.
I'm just sayin'. I'm just shining a little light.
Happy Mother's Day to all the wives who are mothers, and to all the women who are not. Every day is the day that God has created. Every day is a day we should be glad and rejoice in it.
