Today as I was scrolling through Facebook…and yes I was still in bed doing it. 🙂 I came upon this post that a friend of mine reposted…and yes she is really a friend and not just a Facebook friend. I began to read it and couldn’t believe that it was almost verbatim what my post on motherhood was about. (The idea only, this author expanded on the topic as only someone who is actually walking in the shoes of being childless could understand). This article is written from the perspective of the woman left seated. I read it and thought that it was an excellent article. Then I read some of the responses and was surprised that some people thought that this author was somehow trying to detract from Mother’s Day and trying to take away the honour of being a mother.
Here’s the link, read it for yourselves and see if what she was saying is taking away from Mother’s Day or adding to it. An open letter to pastors (A non-mom speaks about Mother’s Day) – See more at: http://timewarpwife.com/?p=3120#sthash.jhLikgeO.dpuf
I for one applaud her for stepping up and allowing herself to be vulnerable so that others could hear her story.
Here’s to allowing ourselves to become vulnerable.
