A Different Mother’s Day Post

This is a different Mother’s Day post. I wanted to honor those mothers who have lost children. This short video esteems life and the parents who make hard choices to love their children even if they know they will only have them for a short time. These mothers don’t have little hands to give them cards on Mother’s Day, but they have little hearts awaiting them in Heaven. I know–I’m one of them.

I hope this video puts this special day into perspective for you, and gives you a greater appreciation for the blessings God has given you.

God bless you, and call your mother. She’d love to hear from you.

In Him together, Susan Gaddis

  1. As a motherless mother, I know that Mother’s Day is not all chocolates and roses. Thoughts and prayers to all the hearts that don’t feel like celebrating this weekend.

    Beautiful. No words. Only tears. Can’t wait to meet that little fighter some day in heaven.

    God gives. God takes. God’s name be ever blessed. I’m still working on that.
    How did the video impact me? Tears.
    Thanks for sharing this “different” mother’s day post – for speaking to the many who are missing someone in their lives.

    You speak for many I know, Jamie. Thank you for sharing your heart. My mom died 9 years ago and I still miss her.

    Donna, I know how hard this holiday is for you. Prayers going out to you.

    Nancy and Lilly–me too.

    The brave mothers are the ones who have to let go too soon. The really brave mothers are the ones who have to let go too soon and know it. The really, really brave mothers are the ones who have no birth children, but carry their spiritual children in their hearts and prayers. There is something to be said for the connection between deep pain and high courage.
