Mother’s Day: Not Just a Holiday, a Holy-day

MothersDay

Nineteen definitions of the word "Mother" in : Noun, adjective, verb and idiom. We have plenty of choices when choosing the meaning of one of the oldest words in the English language. The most common is: female parent.

On Mother's Day we're used to honoring the woman who gave birth to us, raised us, or had a nurturing role in our life. For some, the second Sunday in May is a sad day. Loss, bitter memories, and old hurts are felt more deeply on Mother's Day. For them, I offer a new way to celebrate the holiday.

Grab a dictionary, and pick a definition of mother that speaks to you. My favorite is:

Something or someone that gives rise to or exercises protecting care over something else.

Make the day one of gratitude for the Creator who protects and cares for you. Have brunch, visit with family and do all the Mother's Day activities that Hallmark promotes. But this year, add prayer to the secular holiday of Mother's Day and make it a holy holiday.

Blessings to you on Mother's Day.
