I woke feeling a little sad this morning. Probably because I no longer have a Mother to wish Happy Mothers Day. Her birthday would have been next week. She loved purple flowers, as do I. I think of her when a new purple bloom opens up in my own yard.
Looking around at the people in my life, I realize there are lots of people just like me. Missing someone special in their life.
I decided this morning before and after the morning Church service to make sure I give all the ladies in our congregation a special hug. Some of them have also lost their mothers, some still have their mothers, and some are too young to be mothers. But each of them needs a hug anyway.
I am hoping you will look around you, and notice how many sad people there are today, because they are missing someone special. It may be a spouse they are missing. It doesn't matter, you need to be the arms of Jesus this morning.
Thank you, I feel your arms around me too.
