ADOPT A MOM
Mother’s Day is a fun and joyous day for moms, but it is also a painful, sad
day for many women. More than likely, there are women in your church,
neighborhood or community whose family is not around or have distanced
themselves for some reason. Even more painful are those women who
were never able to become a mom. While moms are being honored and
celebrated, these women are often left out. Beyond honoring your own
mom as a family, consider this year “adopting a mom” in addition.
Find a female member of your church, neighborhood, or community that
doesn’t have a family nearby or maybe never had the blessing of being a
mom for herself. Do all the things you would normally do for a mom on
Mother’s Day honoring this woman, just as a woman. As a family consider:
Buying her flowers
Buy her a card and write her an encouragement
Take her out to eat or make her a meal
Attend church together or invite her to sit with you as a family.
Whatever might be a normal family tradition for your family, consider
doing it for one other woman you might know.
