Like all holidays, Mother's Day is a little bittersweet for me. We need to remember that it isn't all warm and fuzzy for everyone, and not everyone can appreciate their mothers. However, we can all forgive, and I've learned that by forgiving, I am honoring my mother in the best way that I can.
To those who can relate I'd like to say: FORGIVE. Pray without ceasing until you are able to forgive, because carrying unforgiveness will eat you alive from the inside out, AND learn to appreciate the mature women in your life that love and mother you (or others) that they did not birth. They are out there. You know the type...the women that could mother a rock, because they are THAT good at it. Seek them and pray for God to send them into your life.
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful mother in law (I hate attaching "in law"). She has loved me more in the past three years than I ever believed possible. I thank God for her. She is amazing.
