I keep seeing all these posts about relaxing or remembering the hurting mom. And I can't help but sit here and wonder why?
Believe me, I get it. Some moms have husbands that are off on weekends and kids that will let them relax. Congratulations! Other moms are at work, or their husbands are at work stateside or overseas, and still others are single moms who today will be a normal day for.
And some moms have babies in heaven and miss them everyday. I do. But making other moms feel guilty (as one Facebook friend seems to be set to do) is not the answer. Let them celebrate the fact they are moms without guilt tripping them because their children are here with them.
Today is supposed to be a day to celebrate our moms. So take that time and tell them Happy Mother's Day and thank them for all they have done. And pray for those who are hurting and love them a little bit more today. But never feel guilty about being a mom, never.
happy Mother's Day!
