Mother’s Day is going to beautiful this Sunday! I hope you have a wonderful way to tell your mom you love her. I love my mom and am so glad she’s still here for me to thank her for all she’s done and continues to do for me. But it’s not the same for many. Mother’s Day can be disappointing or painful, and it’s important to remember those who may have a hard time on the second Sunday in May. My friend and beloved Twin Cities musician, Mary Beth Carlson said it so well in a recent Facebook post:
“Love being Mom to Kim, Lindsay and Jody, and love watching Kim and Lindsay be Moms to their kiddos! During this week preceding Mother’s Day, I think of those who don’t experience this joy for one reason or another. Don’t mean to be a downer, just calling attention to the fact that everywhere we turn there are reminders of this celebration of motherhood whether Hallmark card displays in stores or ads/commercials elsewhere. As we know, Mother’s Day is not a happy, heartwarming celebration for everyone. Let’s pray for those who struggle with loneliness, loss, sadness, insecurities, unfulfilled dreams. If you are one who does not look forward to this holiday for any of those reasons, I pray for refreshing joy to fill your heart in some beautiful way this week, friend. ”
There’s someone you know who needs a hug or a phone call on Mother’s Day. You can put a smile on their face.
