Mother’s Day 2011-It Does Get Better

Most of you have probably seen the public service announcement that says “it does get better.” The commercials are meant to encourage young people that in spite of their circumstances in some cases they are being bullied, but “it does get better”. The PSA is designed to let them know there is light at the end of the tunnel, and it is not an oncoming train. As I approach Mother’s Day I want to use the same phrase. For those of you who lost your mother recently “it does get better”. Right now the tears are fresh, and they sting, but time does truly heal and you will smile again. For those of you who lost your mother years ago like me “it does get better”. You can reflect on the good memories. Yes, there is still pain and you wish your mother was with you as you walk your journey, but know that her spirit still lives, and take comfort in the fact that you will see her again. For those of you, who might not have had the best relationship with your mother, know you can move on and “it does get better.” So today I thank God for my wonderful mother, and I thank her for raising me and shaping me into the person I am today. I am proud of how she lived and I pray that she would be proud of how I am living. Happy Mother’s Day to all.
