On this Mother’s Day, my boy will be the chalice lighter at church this morning.
It’s especially significant, I think, because tomorrow marks 28 years since learning that becoming a mom would take a very different path than most travel. Little did we know.
And that’s what today, all of our days, are really all about, aren’t they? We forge our own paths and our own way as mothers and as women. As people. We do the very best we can in the face of obstacles, big and small.
And whether you’re a mother in the traditional Hallmark sense, or as a different definition that has special meaning for your life, know that on this day and every day you are a light to those on your path.
Happy Mother’s Day.
