Celebrating Mother’s Day Amid a Pandemic

Holidays.  They are one of the few events on the calendar that are not canceled these days because of the Coronavirus.  It is the way in which we must celebrate them that has changed.

Mother’s Day is one of the most popular days of the year.  Phone calls, flowers, gifts, and family dinners fill the special Sunday to honor mothers.  Even as many restaurants are opening for dine-in customers, face masks and social distancing must still be practiced.  Because of COVID-19, some mothers may be in the hospital or their children may be in the hospital and family members cannot all be together.  Sadly, some may have even passed away as a victim of the virus.

As Mother’s Day is celebrated this year, may those whose mothers have passed on find comfort in memories; may those whose mothers are still living find joy in their presence and the opportunity for another year to create more memories.  On this Mother’s Day, may we all enjoy the gift of God’s grace.    Happy Mother’s Day!

Words of Faith: “Her children arise up, and call her blessed . . .. Proverbs 31:28 (KJV).
