I made a bold statement on Mother’s Day…

I Deserve It {The Daily Dash: May 13, 2019}

IN THE NEWS:

* Chinese tariffs will increase cost of goods in US
* Airline pilot arrested for murder
* Legendary actress Doris Day died at the age of 97
* National Apple Pie Day

IN THE WORD:

Every element of our own self-reliance must be put to death by the power of God ~ Oswald Chambers

IN MY LIFE:

I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day. I’m proud to say it was one of my best Mother’s Days ever. And that’s saying a lot considering I typically end up in tears at some point on Mother’s Day or my birthday.

For whatever reason, I put a lot of pressure on myself and don’t feel comfortable on days that celebrate me. I don’t accept presents well and don’t want people spending money on me, especially my family. I’d much rather receive a handwritten note or participate in an experience all together.

That being said, now that my children are teenagers, they gave me a stern talking to. They explained not only do I deserve to be celebrated, it steals their joy when I don’t allow them to give me gifts.

I don’t know how you feel about Mother’s Day, but I pray you learn to let others celebrate you. And to each of you waiting to be a mom or who fill in the gaps for those who need a mother figure in your life, just know you are seen and appreciated too!

PRAYER FOCUS: Acceptance
May we not only accept and love those around us, but may we also learn to accept and receive the same love we’re supposed to give so freely.
