 Today is Mother’s Day, which brings thoughts of mothers to my mind.

First, I think of the many women who attempt to become mothers but have problems. My heart cries out to them this day.

Second, I think of some of the women who find it too easy to become mothers but are not prepared for the role. My heart cries out for their children.
