What About the Women on Mother's Day

What about the women on Mother's Day who have been trying to conceive and can't?
What about the women on Mother's Day who have had a miscarriage (or several.)
What about the women on Mother's Day who have given a child up for adoption?
What about the women on Mother's Day who are a foster mom?
What about the women on Mother's Day who have dedicated their life to God in celibacy? (Nuns)
What about the women on Mother's Day who are a mother only because they were raped?
What about the women on Mother's Day who are in the process of adopting?
What about the women on Mother's Day who have had their only child pass away?
What about the women on Mother's Day whose child is in prison?
What about the women on Mother's Day who aren't married?
What about the women on Mother's Day whose own mothers are deceased?


Please keep in mind that Mother's Day causes pain and grief for multiple reasons.  Sometimes it's easier to stand when a church asks all mothers to stand.  Sometimes it's easier to miss church. After I was in a service where every adult woman but me went forward to receive a flower and the church was told how being a mother is God's highest calling for any woman, I have never, nor will I ever, attend church on Mother's Day again.
