Even if people don’t know you, they will greet women with Happy Mother’s Day! They don’t realize that simple happy greeting may bring up painful memories of life, some may want to forget? To those who’s MOTHERS are no longer in this world, that may be loveless, mean, unavailable or just MIA, ‘Let your hearts be not saddened for the LORD loves you.’ No one seems to mention this aspect of Mother’s Day?
Some may not have had so a great a Mother. Are there cards for them? We can’t chose our Mothers or families but we can chose how we respond. FORGIVE THEM because that is what our Lord would want for us. Please do not perpetuate the treatment you endured from that less than perfect mom, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles and even the beloved grandparents.
Some are fortunate enough to have great Moms and families and some are not. To those who still have their Moms and they are great Moms, cherish them. And, to those who do not, chose not to live in their pain and forgive, that is for you.
Next time you want to greet someone with a traditional greeting, be mindful that ALL ARE NOT THE SAME.
Would this be systemic poverty for a race? Or is this part of “THE CRITICAL RACE THEORY” that should not be taught?
Critical Race Theory: a set of ideas holding that racial bias is inherent in many parts of western society, especially in its legal and social institutions, on the basis of their having been primarily designed for and implemented by white people. ~ Oxford Languages
Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible. ~~ Frankl
