This is for all the mothers out there - those with mental or physical illnesses, those who are addicts or prisoners, those who are absent in their children's lives, those who live everyday sacrificing their lives for their children, and those who are watching their children from heaven above.
There is something that is so special about Mother’s Day because it is a reminder that your mother gave birth to you. Even if you think were an “accident” or “mistake” or you’ve been told that, remind yourself that you were born out of your mother’s womb, and that is a gift in itself ― a truly beautiful miracle. What’s even better is knowing that life gave the gift of you. Nothing is an accident because God is directing each one of your steps, and you are the best hope for the future.
So, for those whose mothers sacrifice everything for you: Although, I really value the thought behind Mother's Day, I believe that recognition and everything that your mother has done for you should make that turn every day into Mother's Day.
Naturally, when we have a mother, as young children, we depend on our moms for everything. As teenagers, we start to retaliate when things do not go our way. And, as we finally get older, we slowly start to realize the significance of a mother. Sometimes, we forget how much our moms have done for us. Some of us grow up thinking our mothers will never understand our struggles, but the truth is some mothers invest time making sure we never understand theirs.
