May and June are such bush months with graduations, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Certainly it is a time of new beginnings and of appreciating all those people who have positively influenced us!
I think it would be good to add a Family Day to the calendar. What about those people who are neither mothers nor fathers, but have nurtured people over the years through their personalities, talents and professions? Teachers, librarians and people who have mentored us over our lifetime, may not be parents, but they have been encouragers and mentors to us. How about Mentor’s Day or Family Day for those who are not parents, but might as well have been, because of the positive influence they have had on people.
If there is not a reason to celebrate, I usually try to invent one. One reason to celebrate is to give thanks for our Heavenly Father and His love for all of His children. Even if there may never be Mentor’s Day or Family Day, there will always be Sunday – the Lord’s Day! Will you come and celebrate with us this Sunday, or go to the church of your choice and celebrate?
God bless each and every one of you.
