Mother’s Day Thoughts

momMother’s Day is a double edged sword for me.  I am not a mother.  I would like to be one.  I also lost my mom at a somewhat young age.  I feel like the adult me never got to know my Mom.  A friend of mine posted a link on her Facebook page that almost undid me on Friday.  This line really grabbed me:

“each milestone is a mile more in the road that we don’t walk together.'”

Even though I am sad, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the women who have taken the time to speak life into me over and over again.  I have been blessed with so many friends over the years.  Many of them a little older than me but some my age or younger.  They have had wisdom and words of encouragement.  They have modelled for me what it really means to be a woman of faith.  They honoured me as a woman and called me out.  So to all of those women I say “Happy Mother’s Day!”
