Mother's Day is still very painful for me. With all the prayers, preparation, and thoughts of one day spending Mother's Day as a mother, the day still gives me anxiety!!
I made a promise to myself that until the day that I am a mother, I would spend the day with my own mother. Unfortunately, we can't afford to travel to Houston this year so we decided to spend the day with my mother-in-love to make sure she knew what a special mom she is to us.
I had a terrible experience about three years ago when I found myself at a Mother's Day celebration and I was the ONLY person there that was NOT a mother. And to be honest, I'm afraid that is going to happen again this weekend. Although I am not proud to admit this...we are not going to church that day either. I'm just being real here...but instead of celebrating the Lord, I know that all I would be doing at church on Mother's Day would be focusing on the fact that I'm still not a mother.
I would really covet your prayers this week and especially on Mother's Day. I know my very own special Mother's Day is coming soon...I just need prayers of peace to be patient and know that my Mother's Day will be better than I've ever imagined!!!
