“I just want her to go to Mass with me”.
This was what the kind woman at the Post Office admitted to me one year when we were engaged in small talk about Mother’s Day.
What she wanted most from her daughter on Mother’s Day was her to go to Church with her.
And that mother is not alone in that desire.
You may know that my blog is called “Prayer Wine Chocolate “, but you may not know my blog’s tagline…
“a spiritual journey to motherhood and beyond “.
Motherhood is known to be physically demanding, but it can be spiritually demanding too
I know when I longed to be a mother, I found great comfort in saying that intention out loud with friends before we prayed a Rosary. It gave me greater hope when I shared that prayer and hope with others.
Our Moms pray for us more than anyone we ever know.
And when we do become mothers…
our children drive us to our knees because the love we have for them is so intense.
