Confession Time-- For many years I hated Mother's Day because I wasn't one. Then I became one and it turned out that I wasn't going to have the typical mother experience nor be a mother again. It was all I could do to attend church and take the flowers they handed out.
Well, I guess one day my wise mother stepped in and told me something that changed my life and my way of thinking. She told me that Mother's Day was not about me and weather I was a mother or not. It was a day to honor my mother and how wonderful she is. I am so grateful to her for saying that. It really turned me around.
Some times God steps in and gives you alternatives. He helps fill in the holes with other things. These following notes were written by two students of mine. As far as I am concerned they are just as good as Mother's Day cards from my children.
Happy Mother's Day and thanks for all you do. I appreciate it.
PS. I know I chose to be Daniel's mother and even though it has been hard, I am glad I chose him.
