Mother’s Day Poem

Wide Spectrum of Mothering by Amy Young

To those who gave birth this year to their first child—we celebrate with you.
To those who lost a child this year – we mourn with you.
To those who are in the trenches with little ones every day and wear the badge of food stains – we appreciate you.
To those who experienced loss this year through miscarriage, failed adoptions, or running away—we mourn with you.
To those who walk the hard path of infertility, fraught with pokes, prods, tears, and disappointment – we walk with you. 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 you.
To those who have warm and close relationships with your children – we celebrate with you.
To those who have disappointment, heart ache, and distance with your children – we sit with you.
To those who lost their mothers this year – we grieve with you.
To those who experienced abuse at the hands of your own mother – we acknowledge your experience.
To those who lived through driving tests, medical tests, and the overall testing of motherhood – we are better for having you in our midst.
To those who will have emptier nests in the upcoming year – we grieve and rejoice with you.
And to those who are pregnant with new life, both expected and surprising –we anticipate with you.
This Mother’s Day, we walk with you. Mothering is not for the faint of heart and we have real warriors in our midst. We remember you.

Uhhhhhhh……what?

Uhhhhhhh……what?

The day you get married is one of the most important days of your life. Naturally you wants the ones that mean the most to you be at your side to witness the big event. That might even include your dog.  But maybe this is a tad far? You be the judge……

Today is the National Day of Prayer and regardless of our political views, opinions, and all the above, it’s an incredible opportunity to come together as one nation under God and pray for our nation and those who are in charge of leading it. Here’s a “cheat sheet” if you will that breaks down who to add to that prayer list.
