This Sunday is Mother’s Day. For those women who don’t have children, Mother’s Day can be difficult. At a previous church I attended, they made such a fuss over the mothers on Mother’s Day that I would sit in the pew feeling like my life was meaningless. Or the businesses that hand out flowers to women on Mother’s Day. Do I decline the flower or do I graciously accept it? It’s not really meant for me…
So, when Care Keepers, Inc. asked me to write my monthly post on mothers, I decided to take a different slant. You don’t have to give birth to be a mother! I am a stepmother, an aunt, and an older sister!
I wrote the post to be an encouragement to those who fill a maternal role but may not have children of their own. You are mothers, too! Read my post by following the link below. While you’re there, explore the other great resources that Care Keepers has to offer.
This post is in no way meant to belittle the idea of celebrating mothers on Mother’s Day. I am so incredibly thankful for my mother and all she has done for my sisters and me over the years. We have always been close, but now as adults, we are also friends. Women who give their lives for their children deserve a day. Heck, they deserve a whole month!
