Today may be a day that is your least favorite day of the year. Mother’s Day.
Maybe you even feel a little guilty for not liking the day because you had an amazing mom.
Perhaps you have siblings, friends, or cousins that are AMAZING moms but you are not a mom.
Perhaps you are not a mom because a baby was just never given to you.
And you feel.
Well, you may not know how to feel but you know that you feel. Deeply.
Perhaps you are not a mom by choice.
Yet your eyes wander the world on this day and see other women celebrated. And this makes you feel.
You don’t know how it makes you feel. But it does.
Perhaps you were a mom and then your babies or children were taken from you. Too soon. And now you, the mom, are a mom forever and always but you don’t have your baby to say on this day, “YOU ARE MY MOM!”
And this makes you feel.
On this day, ladies, all I can say is that every beautiful trait of YOU is wrapped into a beautiful box and displayed with the grandeur of the perfect woman.
You are that woman.
That beautiful treasure that is perfect just the way she is.
A woman who makes our world a more beautiful place.
You make this world a place where I can travel with my daughters and say, “Look! You are perfect for who you are!”
You, dear woman, are the reason that my daughter will walk tall and strong and proud. Because who knows what her one day will hold.
Maybe it will hold children. Maybe it will not. Maybe it will hold a husband. Maybe it will not. Maybe it will hold loss. Maybe it will not.
But when she looks about this world, she needs to see YOU.
She needs to see that one day — SHE IS ENOUGH as the woman that she is. Because she is fearfully and wonderfully made!
So, today, on Mother’s Day, Ladies, I would like to say “Thank you” to you. Because of you, I can point to my daughters and say “Look at this woman and see what she has done! The world is stronger and more creative, beautiful, and kind because of her. Be like her!”
And my daughters will go to bed remembering all that you are…
The woman that makes our world a better place.
