It’s nearly Mother’s Day and if you’re a procrastinator like I am, you might not’ve gotten anything yet for your mom. But it’s not too late! There’s still time to bless mom with something amazing!

I picked the perfect hot pink polish and relaxed into the big cushy massage chair as the glorious warm water swirled about my feet. Oh sweet pedicure! What heaven to escape for an hour with a fashion magazine, solitude and an awesome leg massage!
At least it’s what I thought.Typically an anonymous Asian woman starts the water in the foot bath as I check Instagram on my phone, or answer emails or texts. It’s easy to remain distant, disconnected and disinterested in the human being who is dutifully washing my feet. Today though, I felt the Lord prompt me to engage. “Talk to her, ask her name.” I’m fully aware…
I picked up the phone and she was in tears. Not just tears but sobbing, choking, snot-running-down-your-face kind of tears making it nearly impossible for her to talk. I gave her some time to calm down enough to be coherant and here’s what she choked out:
“I just feel like I’ve lost my way.”
She went on to list all the areas in her life causing her stress, convinced she was an utter failure in mothering, life, marriage, everything. So she called me wanting know how to get her life back on track…
It’s got everything to do with mothering, with family, with living our lives as salt and light. Moms hold it all together. We are the center for love and nurture, for training and teaching, for feeding and caring. We’re in the trenches day after day and no matter what, our love is the glue.
