Mother's Day is a time to remember and reflect on how we have mothered in all areas of our lives. For us as birthmothers, Mother's Day may be a sad time as we have given birth to new life and allowed someone else to nurture that life and watch it grow.
How have you mothered in other ways perhaps to a niece or a nephew, a friend's child, etc? What area of your life are you currently mothering in? Do you have children at home? Neighborhood children you love on when they are in your home? Children at church? As women, we were created to be life-giving not just through our bodies but by the way we speak and serve and sacrifice for others.
This Mother's Day let's indeed remember the children that we are not raising. But let's also celebrate all the ways we can mother to those around us.
