Mother's Day

This past Sunday was Mothers Day. It was also Pentecost Sunday. the mothers won out, Big Surprise! Joanne prepared the watering can card with the pack of flower seeds for each mother. We did have to redefine mothers. We explained that a mother is not someone who simply gave birth; there are adoptive mothers, spiritual mothers, mother figures, you get the idea. We wanted to make sure that we recognized all the women who have a mothering role in someone's life. Several women said they had never been recgnized as mothers on Mothers Day.

There's a quote, "It's easy to become a mother, it's being a mother that's difficult".
