Mother’s Day is a tribute to the one woman who has loved us unconditionally since we breathed our first breaths.
For those who have, like me, lost their moms way too soon in their lives it’s a pain like no other. I can remember going to a church service a year or so after losing my mother. It was Mother’s Day and several of my friends were there with their mothers. An emotional pain, unlike anything I had ever felt before in my life, gripped me and I had to leave. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. It wasn’t jealousy, it was a feeling of anger, and resentment. I couldn’t understand why I had to be left without my dearest friend and closest confidant. It took me years to be okay with God about that. It wasn’t until I was sane enough to understand that God had a calling on my life and it was Satan who tried to destroy me through taking my mom way too soon!
Now, at my age a lot of my friends are losing their parents. I was saying to someone recently how I think it was easier, looking back, to lose my parents at a young age. So many of my peers are not feeling well themselves and yet now they have the added pain of losing a parent. Truthfully, no matter how old you are losing a parent is like losing a part of you that you can never get back.
Some people are estranged from their mothers. I cannot understand that because I cannot imagine ever being mad enough at my parent to never want them in my life again.
Unless you were sexually abused, emotionally battered or almost killed by your estranged mother you need to get over it and repair your relationship! Don’t hold grudges! Life is too short! You can never find anyone who will love you, on this earth, like a mom! Do the right thing and call her.
I pray for those of you who lost your mother recently to find peace, the peace of God, to get you through tomorrow. It’s okay to feel sad. It’s understandable. But God will give you a strength you never knew you had to get you through the day! I know He will because he gave it to me and he still does!
