At my church several years ago, some well-meaning passed out carnations to all the mothers in the pews on Mother's Day. Most Sundays, I am one of only two or three single people in church, and on that day, I was the only woman who didn't have a flower. I was stopped as I was leaving, given a flower, and when I said, "oh! I don't have children!" was told, "that's ok. You will someday!"
I haven't been back on Mother's Day since.
And so, pastoral types, if you get a minute before next Sunday, do give this a look.
