1. Wonderful write up on all aspects of Mother’s Day ….however you forgot to write about us women who are “God mothers” to others and have a GREAT responsibility to Jesus and that child who we are a Godmother to for him/her TO KNOW CHRIST all the days of their lives! We should honor ALL God mothers as well!

    Thank you for the write up — I’m in one of those categories as well. Mother’s Day is such a mixed
    emotional day for us women!

  2. Praise The Lord! Thank you for this! I struggle sometimes with Mother’s Day because I lost my mother in 2005 and it seems like yesterday. But since my mother passed I have had to share Mother’s Day with my mother n law and if I can be honest, I don’t want to share with her anymore or at least not tomorrow! Is that wrong? Is it wrong to want a Mother’s Day…JUST FOR ME??

    1. I think it is OK for you to want to celebrate Mothers’ Day as you wish. . After all she wasn’t there when your children were conceived. You deserve to enjoy this day with whomever you want too. I know this sounds kind of rude. But hey, it is your day!
      Happy Mothers Day!!

    2. Hi Rocquin,
      No, I don’t think it is wrong that you’d like to celebrate Mother’s day on your own terms. You can always have one day you celebrate Mother’s Day with her and a day you celebrate Mother’s Day where it is just you and your family.

  3. The past two Mother’s Days have hurt for me. I’ve had an up and down relationship with my mom. Last year she separated from my dad. This year, I got mad at her for trying to mother me in my adult years (I’m 29). It’s also hard to watch younger siblings and friends have kids and I’m still waiting for my own. She’s also been very critical of my relationship with my husband and always seems to give advice that puts a wedge between him and me.

    1. Oh, I’m so sorry to hear this, Rachel. Mothers and MILs can create a lot of division in a marriage. Be wise and discerning, and fight to keep unity in your marriage in spite of well meaning family members.
