Today is one of those days I dread. I know so many women do. So for today, would you do me a favor? When you pass a woman, one of your friends, would you LOOK at her? Really look at her?
Take a moment to see her heart - not the external circumstances she is living in. We as women can be a tough bunch. "Happy Mother's Day" can be thrown around without much thought. To many it is a day of sadness - for what has been lost (mother or child) or what has never been. To many, it is a glorious day to celebrate all that has been given. And even, it should be a day to celebrate women who aren't mothers (maybe not even married) who have helped you along the way - to be your mom or help as you be a mom.
So please, look at her. Really look at her. You may not know what to say, but that is okay. Maybe that is even better.
