Waiting For Monday

Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend. Hopefully lots of mothers will be showered with thank you cards and breakfast in bed and homemade gifts! It is a day of celebration!

And yet for many, it is also a day of pain.

What do you write in a card to the mother who hurt you? How do you celebrate when your beloved mother has died or can’t remember who you are? What do you say when a store clerk wishes you a “Happy Mother’s Day” and you’ve never given birth? When a restaurant worker offers flowers to mothers on Sunday, do you take one anyway – or do you point out to that stranger that you’d love to be a mother but you have been dealing with infertility or had a miscarriage or a stillbirth?

This Mother’s Day I give thanks for mothers, including my own. But there is also a very special place in my heart for those who are looking forward to Monday. You are not alone.

In Christ,

Pastor Jen
