To the Moms.
To all the wonderful moms out there: I'm thinking of you and thankful for you. For my mom, my mother-in-law, my aunts, grandmothers, friends, and mentors- Thank you for the example of womanhood that you are and specifically the different ways you've showed me how to be a good mom... and become a better mom.
And for those who are suffering because they've longed to be a mom and can't get pregnant. For those who have lost their children, their beautiful irreplaceable treasures... and for those who have lost their mom, the one who gave you life and loved you wholeheartedly albeit imperfectly... know that my heart is with you and grieves with you. May the God of all comfort be near to your heart. May He console you. He gave up His Son to death on a cross for us. I'm not saying that to minimize your pain, I'm saying he grieves with you. He knows your pain.
So, as much as I want to rejoice with those who are rejoicing, those who can kiss their sweet babes and hug their dear moms I also want to be mindful of those who have loss. May we rejoice with those who are rejoicing, and weep those who are weeping.
