A Different Kind Of Mothers Day

Erin said it beautifully here.

After you've stuffed yourself at the restaurant, opened your gifts,
and enjoyed your Mothers Day flowers, pause a moment and think of
all the women, who will have a different kind of Mothers Day on Sunday.

Yes, there are tragedies everywhere; they seem to arise one after the other,
and you have financial issues of your own.
But I'm asking you, if you haven't already given this year to
help someone else to have a better life or an easier one,
then please consider sharing of yourself:

Tennessee would be a good place to start.

Mothering: verb [trans.] look after kindly and protectively
There are many ways to mother, and the female of the species not only births the world but mothers the world in turn.

The people of Tennessee have suffered greatly this past week, their tragedy a bit lost amidst all the others. They need our/your help.
Your local Red Cross, or the TN Red Cross would be
happy to receive whatever you can spare.

Happy Mothers Day

Suzan

What a beautiful and thoughtful post Suzan

The news of Tennessee is very sad and I know these people will need support of the coming weeks... and as you say.. gentle mothering..

I hope your own Mothers Day is filled with joy and happiness xxx Julie

oh sweety...thank you so much for thinking of my tennessee home. i kinda even forgot mothers day was tommorrow. you are a thoughtful, dear one. the sun is shining today and there is a cool breeze in the air, that is floating all our troubles away (somewhat). we could all stand a huge hug from our mothers! thank you.

Suzan, you make me proud to know you! There is more to being a mother than giving birth.

Hi Suzan
What a thought felt post... truer words were never spoken... caring for one another is what it is all about. I hope you have a wonderful mothers day and somewhere in your heart you will find the words you need to express, sometimes out head gets in the way.
Blessings
Rebecca
