A Mother’s Day Wish
It’s that time of year again! The time when we stop and think about the women in our lives who have been an important part of the person that we have become…..our Mothers, Grandmothers and Aunts or maybe just a special woman that God has placed in our life and has served a purpose above and beyond. In the United States we celebrate Mother’s Day with flowers, Hallmark Cards and maybe brunch at a very over-crowded (and over-priced) restaurant……all so Mom doesn’t have to cook!
I was reflecting this past week on the Women who have been a part of who I have become and hope to be someday. I know where each one of them will be on this Sunday, Mother’s Day. I know where to send a card or when to call and say hello. They all know where I am and how my family is doing. It seems that life is good, or as good as it is going to get for right now, anyway!
In contrast, I have also been reflecting on those families who’s lives have been devastated by the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster in Japan. My heart goes out to those children who have lost their Mothers, Grandmothers or Aunts. My heart bleeds for those Mothers who have lost Children and Spouses. I can not even imagine the horror of not knowing where your family member is……were they swept out to sea; are they buried under piles of rubble; are they gone forever, or will they be found in another part of the country, waiting and wondering the same thing.
My wish for this Mother’s Day is that we would all take a moment and thank God for the beautiful women in our lives and pray for those in Japan who are lost without theirs!
Join Prairie Queens as we celebrate Mother’s Day Sunday with a special Boutique and Bake Sale to benefit the victims of the disasters in Japan. One hundred percent of all proceeds will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross.
May your Mother’s Day be special and filled with family!
