“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” – Abraham Lincoln
Mother’s Day is such an incredible day. It celebrates the purest form of love we can receive from another person. Right from the time she carries a child in her womb to the sacrifices she makes during the child’s life, a mother gives so much. A mother never stops caring and every mother deserves to be recognized for her efforts.
Of course the love for a mother shouldn’t be limited to a single day. Having said that, Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to do something special for this special person in our lives. For those fortunate enough to have their mothers in their lives, it should be a day filled with love, grace and gratitude.
At Sheltering Grace, we see many brave mothers making tough decisions and powering through difficult times in their lives. Every day we see women rising up to the challenges of motherhood in the direst of circumstances. So Mother’s Day is a very big day for us. Sometimes, such a symbolic gesture is the much-needed complement to the practical care, devotion and help that a mother can get.
Whether it is from her own children or a cause such as ours, a mother should feel extra special on Mother’s Day. So as you celebrate the love of your own mother this Mother’s Day, also keep the would-be and new mothers at Sheltering Grace in your hearts, mind and prayers.
Sheltering Grace Ministry, Ltd. is a 501(c)3 Ltd. non-profit ministry. We resolve the initial crisis of homelessness by providing a safe place to live during pregnancy and by providing mothers with the tools they need to improve decision-making, to enhance employment options, and increase family income, to act responsibly as the head of their household, and to develop the self-reliance to progress to permanent independent living. Please join us in renewing and rebuilding the lives of these brave women – #Be1of5000.
