One Mother’s Thoughts on Mother’s Day
Each Mother's Day I like to remind each of my three (now-grown) children of the sacrifices I've made as a mother, both as they came into this world, and as I raised them to be the fine young men and women they have become.

The Day in Between Today is the day that falls between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The day that falls in between despair and hope, between sin and redemption, between the crucifixion and the resurrection.
