This is my Aunt Gladys, who was my Godmother. My parents chose her and my Uncle Olaf, (over 60 years before "Olaf" became such a popular name after Disney's "Frozen" film.) Uncle Olaf passed away when I was five, but the relationship I had with Aunt Gladys lasted 57 years. I was truly blessed!
Perhaps you weren't blessed as I was to have a mother, and an aunt who was like a second mother to me. Perhaps your relationship was stormy, or you have no memories of your real mother. Perhaps you have longed for, prayed to be a mother, but your prayers seem to go unanswered.
Or maybe you never wanted to be a mother at all. I pray that there has been someone in your life who has been a mother to you, or that you can mother in return, if that is your desire. And perhaps the only true motherly relationship you've had is with Mother God.
May you who read this be blessed this day.
