Mother’s Day is a beautiful time to celebrate mothers and the work they do to for those around them. I’m so grateful for my mom and mother-in-law who have loved my family and me for so many years. Each year they give their time and love for us.
I’ve also always viewed Mother’s Day as a time to be grateful for other women that I’ve met and lived life with through the years. (I love to make cheesecake for Mother’s Day for myself, and I like to give slices of cheesecake to my friends at church.)
I’m so grateful this year for the other women in my life who have invested in me this past year. Through them, I’ve seen modeled selfless love for children who are struggling, and I’ve seen women standing by husbands through serious medical issues. I have friends who have been there for me through the major ups and downs of this past year, and they never grew tired of the difficulties. I have friends who reach out and initiate girls’ nights where we can laugh and talk and hug.
So this Mother’s Day I’m grateful for all of the women in my life who have made the choice to love me and my family.
