Celebrating Mother’s Day as an Unofficial Mother

Celebrating Mother's Day as an Unofficial Mother. Was that less than a "real" mother?

She was the only woman in the pews of her small church.

The other occupants were all men.

The women were all up front receiving their Mother’s Day flower and words of appreciation.

How had this happened?

There was a suitor – once.

But they agreed that the care of her very ill parents needed to be put before their relationship.

So they had married later in life.

And there were no children.

She had certainly mothered her parents.

Caring for them as tenderly as she would any child.

Putting them before her own needs and desires.

That’s what a mother does.

She was an unofficial mother.

Was that less than a “real” mother?

We all know them.

The young, and not so young ladies who have not yet married.

But make great Sunday School teachers and nursery workers.

The unmarried sister.

Who loves to take your children for the weekend.

The friend who couldn’t conceive.

But offers to watch your children while you and your husband have a date.

How could you celebrate an unofficial mother this Mother’s Day?

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.” – Pro 31:30-31 ESV
