Forgive us when we say foolish things. We don’t mean to make this harder than it is.To those who are foster moms, mentor moms, and spiritual moms – we need youTo those who have warm and close relationships with your children – we celebrate with youTo those who have disappointment, heart ache, and distance with your children – we sit with youTo those who lost their mothers this year – we grieve with youTo those who experienced abuse at the hands of your own mother – we acknowledge your experienceTo those who lived through driving tests, medical tests, and the overall testing of motherhood – we are better for having you in our midstTo those who are single and long to be married and mothering your own children – we mourn that life has not turned out the way you longed for it to beTo those who step-parent – we walk with you on these complex pathsTo those who envisioned lavishing love on grandchildren, yet that dream is not to be – we grieve with youTo those who will have emptier nests in the upcoming year – we grieve and rejoice with youTo those who placed children up for adoption — we commend you for your selflessness and remember how you hold that child in your heartAnd to those who are pregnant with new life, both expected and surprising – we anticipate with youThis Mother’s Day, we walk with you.
