This Sunday is Mother’s Day. The one thing we all have in common is that we all have a mother. No one is here on the planet without one. Your mother may not be here physically, or you may not have known her, yet we all share the journey of motherhood with each other. And I would add, we all need maternal nurturing; sometimes, it truly does take a village to provide us with all the mothering we require.
I know that I am so grateful to the godmothers and and grandmothers of my children for they enrich our children’s lives. Look back on your life and notice how many people might have fulfilled that role for you. Even when we are older, we still need the hug, comfort, and the love of a mother. This Sunday is to honor all of those individuals of any gender who mothered you.
Join us on Sunday as I look at the Holy Mother!
