Mothers

Happy Mother's Day to all of you! As I reflect back on this day I naturally think of my two mothers. One that gave me life and one that taught me about the Lord and this life. Both loved me and did what they thought was best for me and for that I am eternally grateful. My biological mother has been gone for 34 years and my adopted mother for 32 years.

I've now been a mother myself for over 38 years and a Nana for 10 years. I realize I am so blessed and thank the Lord I have my loved ones in my life. I'm glad we have a day to celebrate mothers, but at times it makes me very misty-eyed for those of us that have lost our mothers to death, or lack of love. Unfortunately, I know many and I truly believe their loss must hurt more and deeper than mine. I know my mother is in heaven rejoicing with our Savior, but others suffer knowing their relationship just isn't what it should be. For those of you, I pray God will give you a special peace today and know that others care about you, especially our LORD.

Hi Trish,

Happy Mother's Day to you.
This is hubby's first Mother's Day
without his mom being on the earth. We know she is in Heaven so that is a comfort.
Your post touched my heart in a special way and I can relate. I think the pain from the past has given me the ability to love deeper. To God be the glory.

Big hugs,
Barb

Happy Mother's Day!

I understand how my mother felt since she has now been gone since the mid-1990s.

Even in her 80s, she would say she missed her mother more than ever before. Her mother passed away when I was a toddler, I don't have any memories of her... so Mom would have been around 44 when her mom died.

I just visited my mother over Mother's Day. She's 96 and has a wonderful mind. We had a great time together. I only get to see her a couple of times a year now. She is so special to me.
