Mother’s Day. A day meant to be a happy celebration of the maternal bonds we have with our mothers. Yet, for some women, the observance painfully reminds them that, for whatever the reason, they could not be mothers. Others, men and women, remember that their mothers harmed them more than they helped. In each life, though, God provides a person, male or female, who mothers us, providing nurture, acceptance, accountability and love. So let’s celebrate those persons who have touched our lives in the spirit of this day.
