Do you have someone in your life that Could use some extra encouragement this year?
Mother’s Day is usually a day that most women are celebrated by their kids, family and friends. Unfortunately, some women don’t always receive the love and support that they really need. Some women are going through tough trials and situations and they’re in need of more than just a “Happy Mother’s Day”.
Take a deeper look at the faces of the women around you and in your life. You’ll begin to see that they are facing way more than you think. Some have been going through hard times for a while and have conditioned themselves to put on a smile, keep moving, like nothing’s wrong.
Think about your neighbor, your cousin, or friends that you haven’t talked to in a while. If you sit down and talk with them you’ll begin to see that behind their smile is a hidden layer of pain that they’ve been hiding from everyone.
Those are the women that could use a special gift this year.
If you are one of those women, my heart and prayers go out to you. I pray that you will find the peace and relief that you need in your life right now.
And if you’re in a position to bring some joy to a mother who’s in desperate need of some special attention this Mother’s Day, here’s some gift ideas that may just brighten their day…
