I found a burden on my heart for you, God’s Grieving Daughters. Women who have come to dread this time of year completely. Women who don’t feel like there is much to “celebrate” this weekend. I thought about you because, since I became a “Grieving Daughter” myself, I have realized how forgotten we are during Mother’s Day.

What I want you to know is that regret is a LIAR.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I can be a little abrupt and disorganized. Don’t get me wrong, I have the capacity to be extremely organized and strategic, but it’s definitely in doses. The thing is, I am just not naturally “wired” that way. If I want to be well-organized, I have to really put in the effort My organization and meticulous skills come and go in phases.
