On this Mother's Day

I want to wish all of the working moms, stay-at-home moms, moms of public-school children, homeschooling moms, moms of one or of many children, moms-to-be, moms who really need to catch a break, moms who have it all together, moms of every shape, size and color ... a Happy Mother's Day.

I also want us each to take a few moments today and pray for those who have lost their mothers, those who are estranged from their mothers, those who desperately WANT to be mothers, and mothers who have lost children. What a hard day this can be when you wish you could celebrate it, but your heart or your circumstances won't allow it. If you fall into ANY category that means that Mother's Day is a difficult day for you, know that others are thinking of and praying for you today.

My Mother's Day gift this year was to go to a scrapbooking crop around the corner from my house from 6:30 to midnight on Friday and from 4:30 to 10:30 p.m. on Saturday.

We were in a basement with no windows, elbow-to-elbow, no music, no drinks and only one meal provided ... just bare-bones cropping. But there were no distractions, I scrapbooked everything I took with me, and I was even able to help another woman out by scrapbooking some of her things for her.

IT WAS MAGNIFICENT. Thank you, Grayson, Nathaniel, Nicholas and Jake! I love you, and you are the reason that THIS DAY is such a happy one for me.
