A Mother Heart, and other Inclusive ways of talking about Mother's Day
My Bishop reminded us all today that some people won't have the opportunity for marriage, "Thanks, I've never heard that before, thanks for pointing that out. I appreciate the reminder." Ha Ha. :) I'm convinced that the desire for marriage and family isn't any different than any other unfulfilled desire: many people want to find someone so they're not lonely anymore and it doesn't happen, or it does and then they want children and they can't have any, or their kids have health problems, or they lose their job and all their money...and on and on...nobody ever gets what they want when they think they should get it, and nobody's life goes exactly as planned...
...Anways, I'm grateful for what my life is now, and it wouldn't be so great if I didn't have my Mom (or Dad). Happy Mother's Day to everyone, single, widowed, or married-alike!
