This week my Pastor’s wife shared a beautiful note on her Facebook page For Such A Time As This, and it was so well-worded that I asked her if I could share it here and she agreed. I hope you all have a weekend, filled with normal expections, and love from your family. <3
“As Mother’s Day is approaching just around the corner…I think of the many ways of being a mother, especially shown in my own family and beyond.
…there are women who couldn’t be tummy mommy’s but have children through the blessing of adoption & fostering like one of our dear daughters.
….another daughter has two beautiful step-daughters whom she loves dearly.
….our third daughter has a precious baby girl in Heaven, and 5 years later was blessed with a healthy baby boy.
….I think of my own sister, who miscarried precious babies, but has been like a mom and a grandmother to my children.
I think of the birth moms that have placed children for adoption or miscarried.
Those that are single parents, like I was.
Or have children who passed away.
I think of the women who are raising grandchildren or looking after elderly parents.
There are the dear women who have wanted children, but couldn’t and have cared for others in a special way.
So many ways of mothering, caring and loving. To all you dear women, my hat’s off to you, for the difference you make in the world! <3 <3
God bless your hearts!”
