A Special Prayer for Mother’s Day

I know today will be a busy day for many of you. It’s going to be a busy day for me as well.

But before we get lost in opening gifts, exchanging celebratory hugs, and sending off those sparkly group text messages, can we just slip away for a few moments of quiet…just the two of us?

Like so many moments in life, Mother’s Day can be bittersweet.

For some women, it is a blissful day of pampering from her family. For another, it can be a painful reminder of an indescribable loss. And for another, it’s a day where their seemingly deferred dreams come crashing head first into their present realities.

Yes, Mother’s Day can be all these things and so much.

The truth is life doesn’t always come wrapped in a pretty package of perfect.

One Word that Changed Mother’s Day For Me

Written by Tanisha Shanee exclusively for This Is Her Journey

May: The month where April showers blossoms May flowers. The month for new beginnings. And also the month where children celebrate their mothers.

For the last six years, this month has taken on a whole new meaning. What is supposed to be an exciting and wonderful season has turned into a very emotional time for me.

Why is Mother’s Day so emotional for me?

Well, I do have my mother with me, I thank the Lord, Jesus Christ for that. She is a beautiful, strong woman who gave birth to two beautiful women.

But, for some women like me, even though we have our mothers in our lives, we still feel pain on this day because of one word: MISCARRIAGE.
