And you probably just want to make everyone happy. But.

“Happy Mother’s Day!” It’s a cheerful saying for some. But for others of us, it can elicit an array of emotions.

Especially when you’re a woman and you don’t have kids.

A “non-mom.”

Like me.

In the stage of life I find myself right now– though I have aspirations of one day being a mom– right now I am not. Maybe you are like me. Or maybe you’re not like me but know someone in a similar position– the position of a non-mom.

A single woman with no kids.

A married woman with no kids.

A woman who can’t have kids.

A woman who has lost a child.

Of course, different places and people all have their own landscape of real struggles and ups and downs and hopes and dreams and feelings to go with. Some can harbor deep pain But what they do have in common is they can make the second Sunday in May feel a bit awkward.

When someone joyfully wishes you a “Happy Mother’s Day,” what do you say?

When you can’t get together with your own mother, what do you do? 

When you see your social media explode with pictures of children with their seemingly “happy” families, what do you feel?

Mother’s Day can be an interesting annual experience if you’re not a mother. On one hand, sometimes people to use Mother’s Day to place mothers on a pedestal above the rest of us (I remember a church service I attended years ago where women were given gifts according to the number of kids they had) Other times, people smooth over the whole “mother” thing and honor women in general—which makes those of us non-mothers feel especially weird, like being given a participation trophy for sitting the bench in a sport we did not play.

But if we go back to the roots of Mother’s Day, we see something entirely different than a holiday about gifts and cards and dinners and posting selfies with mom.

All of us can probably use a reminder of where Mother’s Day actually came from.

The ancient roots of Mother’s Day actually have nothing to do with mothers themselves and everything to do with community. And the Church.

Early Christians celebrated a festival known as “Mothering Sunday,” which fell on the 4thSunday in Lent. This holiday had once been a major celebration in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe. It was originally a time when Christians would return to their “mother church”—the main church in the vicinity of their home—for a special service. “Mothering Sunday” was less about the woman who gave birth to you and more about the call to return to what is known in the Bible as the “Bride of Christ”– the Church– a Christian community– a family not marked by blood.

Hundreds of years later, in the years before the Civil War in America, a woman named Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia started what she called “Mothers’ Day Work Clubs” to teach local women how to care for their children. Following the Civil War, these clubs later became a unifying force, especially when Jarvis organized “Mothers’ Friendship Day” in 1868, where moms gathered with former Union and Confederate soldiers to promote unity and reconciliation. This “Mother’s Day” was about admitting the relational rift between the sides and bringing together what war had separated.

Decades later, the mother of the “official” Mother’s Day national holiday we celebrate today was actually a woman who was never a mother herself. Her name was Anna Jarvis. In the early 1900’s after her mother’s death, Anna, the daughter of Ann Reeves Jarvis, sought to commemorate the sacrifices mothers made for their children. There were always military parades and celebrations for men who sacrificed—so why not the women who gave up much for their kids? After a marketing opportunity involving her Methodist Church in West Virginia and Wanamaker’s department store in Philadelphia, the holiday took off—even to Anna’s dismay when it later became too commercialized. But Anna herself, the Mother of Mother’s Day, never married and never had children. Yet, she honored the sacrifice of mothers because she had a mother (and probably knew what kind of kid she herself had been!).

So what do the roots of Mother’s Day mean for us as we celebrate Mother’s Day– especially for those of us who are not mothers?

1.    Mother’s Day points to our need for community.

Ancient “Mothering Sunday” reminded people of this and the unique Body of the Church that unites people across ethnicity, race, relationship status, or parenthood status. Whether your kids are biological or whether they have been adopted, whether they have passed away or whether you do not have kids of your own, we all need community. If you’re a non-mother, you need community. If you are a mother or part of a family with a mother, you need community outside your family. As a non-mother, I have realized it’s important not to cut yourself off from moms and families, even if they talk about their kids a lot and make you feel awkward at times. We need them, and they need us. Those who are moms or parents or families with children, you too need to associate with people beyond those who share your place in life. You can learn and gain a lot from those who do not have kids. Invite them in. We appreciate it. On Mother’s Day, be together, celebrate together, and grieve together as the Body.

2.    Mother’s Day brings out honest feelings as well as healing.

Ann Reeves Jarvis brought out in the open what others assumed would be smoothed over in the aftermath of war, and this brought about healing and unity. Mother’s Day may be especially hard for you this year, and sometimes others make that difficult. Sometimes people make comments or assumptions they don’t understand can be hurtful (“Why hasn’t a pretty girl like you gotten married yet?” “When are you guys going to start a family?” “Hasn’t it been a few years already since your baby passed?” But we can be honest with ourselves and with others about where we are and what battles we have faced. Churches need to simply acknowledge the array of people and life experiences in their midst, without attempting to tell them what to feel or how long they should be feeling it. For those of us who are not mothers yet long to be, we need to recognize that the moms we see celebrating with their seemingly happy families are not the enemy. And to the people with kids: don’t assume you know everybody’s situation. All of us can be honest about where we are, what we do or do not understand, and our desire to walk together so that no one is alone.

3.    Mother’s Day is not about elevating women with children above others.

Mother’s Day was never meant to affirm that motherhood is the mark of “arriving” in life, or to make other women somehow “less than.” It’s about acknowledging that all of us had a mother who made a sacrifice for us. For some of us, that sacrifice simply involved carrying us for nine months and nothing more. For others, that sacrifice involved time and money and self, and whether in person or in memory, we thank her for that. But Anna Jarvis also demonstrates that calling and impact and service are not correlated to reproductive history or capacity. Historically, God has used non-moms in some of the most fruitful ministries and movements around the world.

Of course, I anticipate there still will be awkward moments and conversations for non-moms on Mother’s Day. We cannot and should not dismiss the real pain that some are experiencing. But the history of Mother’s Day points us to more than a holiday involving expensive cards, gifts, and dinners. It demonstrates our need for genuine community in the Church. It shows the power of sharing and healing together. And it reveals how a single childless woman can wind up giving birth to a movement that honors others.

Unfortunately, the question of whether or not women and men can lead together with equality and mutuality in the body of Christ is still a front-burner issue in the church today. As the authors and collaborators of this work point out, women are still underrepresented in senior levels of leadership which means that the kingdom of God is robbed of half of the solution for the missional task at hand. In response to this reality, they cast a compelling vision for gender-balanced leadership structures in churches and organizations by offering real-life stories and case studies that illustrate how this is already being done today. I am grateful for ANY and ALL efforts to keep this issue at the forefront of leadership conversations and to present practical strategies for moving forward.

Homemade Gifts Made Easy

kids wish mom happy mothers day

#dearmom

I remember my first Mother’s Day as a single mom. I didn’t expect it to be the way that it was or to be filled with the emotions that hit me that day. I mean, it’s Mother’s Day, and I’m a mom. That didn’t change just because I didn’t have a husband. Or did it?

It turns out, kids don’t really know it’s Mother’s Day unless someone tells them. I hadn’t thought about that when I woke up that first Single-Mother’s Day morning. No one was going to make me breakfast or have cards and a gift waiting for me on the kitchen table.

I hoped to smell a fresh pot of coffee as I walked toward the kitchen, but instead, I smelled something bad in the garbage and saw a sink full of dirty dishes. I turned a blind eye to mess in the sink. I had decided I’d take the day off from housework since this was my day, but that luxury immediately seemed to be impossible to seize.

The kids woke up misbehaving, crying, whining, and arguing. It wasn’t just the kids who were exacerbating. The puppy peed inside the house, right next to a clean load of laundry I had tossed on the floor to fold later. (Note to self: No matter how clean your floor, don’t put your clean laundry there.) From the moment I woke up, pretty much everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong.

“Happy Mother’s Day to me,” I said quietly under my breath.

No one remembered to honor me that day. That Mother’s Day was a huge disappointment.

After the kids went to bed, I went out on the deck and sat alone for a long time. I felt sorry for myself. No one cared about how hard I work or how much responsibility I shoulder.

I told myself things like, “If you hadn’t screwed up your life so badly, you’d wouldn’t be in this place. If you’d have a husband, he would have reminded your kids to be thankful for you. He would have honored you. If your mom was nicer, she’d have helped your kids do something nice for you today.”

It was not my best moment. I cried a lot of tears that night on the deck.

Four Things I Learned

I wish I could say that was my only Mother’s Day that didn’t go according to the plan, but it wasn’t. That was the year, however, I started learning a lot about how to embrace my new normal as a single mother on Mother’s Day.

#1: Check Your Expectations

I expected my children (and even the dog) to understand that Mother’s Day was my special day and give me a day free from misbehaving, crying, whining, and arguing—and peeing in the house. I thought I’d get to sit back and be celebrated and appreciated all day.

That kind of thinking made that first Single-Mother’s Days feel like a failure for me. However, in the days that followed, I realized I needed to go into a day like Mother’s Day with more realistic expectations. Misbehaving, crying, whining, and arguing happened every day in our home.  Therefore, I’d most likely see that on Mother’s Day, too. Trash will stink, dishes will be dirty, dogs will have accidents, laundry will need to be done—because all of that is life. And signs of life are GOOD.

Single Mom, take time before Mother’s Day to examine your expectations for the day and adjust them to be realistic. Going into the day with proper expectations will help avoid setting yourself up for disappointment and frustration. Write down what a normal day looks like for you with your kids, and then don’t expect Mother’s Day to look much different.  Turn your disappointment into gratitude. Be thankful for everything you can be on Mother’s Day, including the signs of life that feel overwhelming at times.

#2: Teach Your Children

Unfortunately, your children weren’t born with an instinct to honor you. Just the opposite. They were born needing to be served and to be the focus of attention. Honoring others is something they need to be taught.

As Mother’s Day approaches, take time to talk with your children about holidays and why it’s important to celebrate people on special days like Mother’s Day (and Father’s Day, for that matter). Teaching them about the meaning of Mother’s Day and why it’s important to take time to celebrate you on this day.

Maybe this feels uncomfortable and sounds selfish, but teaching your kids to honor you isn’t just about being celebrated on this one day. You’re giving them a valuable life lesson about intentionally celebrating the important people in their lives.

You’re also setting the tone for your children’s future. If they become parents someday, how would you want them to treat their future spouse on Mother’s or Father’s Day? How do you want them to treat you on future Mother’s Days when they’re adults? By teaching your children to honor you on Mother’s Day, you’re instilling an important value in them that will help them have stronger relationships throughout their lives.

One fun way to allow your children to celebrate you on Mother’s Day is to give them a small amount of money to spend at a store. My kids love the local dollar store. You should have been there the first time I set the loose to pick out something they thought I’d like. If you give your kids this opportunity, you’re sure to get a laugh out of seeing what they pick! More importantly, with very little investment, this activity will help them learn how to think about other people’s likes and preferences so they can become givers of thoughtful gifts.

Mom, your kids love you so much. They just don’t know how to express it. Set them up with them opportunities to show you.

#3: Make a Plan

In the days leading up to Mother’s Day, think about what you can do to make it a great day. Don’t let Mother’s Day just happen to you, make it happen for you!

Do you like spending time outside? Plan to visit a local park, beach, or gardens.

Do you enjoy being active and getting exercise? Make plans to take the kids with you for a walk or an easy hike.

Prefer relaxing and being still? Maybe rent a movie and watch it with popcorn and special snacks.

Whatever you like to do, consider how you can build time for it into your day.

If your kids don’t like your plan, remember this is an opportunity to teach them how to celebrate others on their special days. You put your own needs aside so often to make your kids happy, so take time on Mother’s Day to indulge in something that will make you feel happy and fulfilled. And remember: You’re not just doing this for yourself, but also to show your kids that moms deserve to do the things they like to do, too!

#4: Honor Your Feelings

Despite all your best efforts, Mother’s Day may still be difficult. Whether you face reminders of past holidays when a former relationship was intact or feelings of sadness when you see married friends celebrating with their spouses, you don’t have to pretend like everything is okay in your world. It’s important to honor your feelings, and know that it’s normal to feel hurt, lonely, sad, or angry. It just means you’re human!

Consider how best to honor those emotions as they come up. You might talk through them with a friend, write about them in a journal, or take a few quiet moments to pray and talk to God. These hurting feelings can offer powerful insights to help you heal and embrace your life as a single mom. They also offer clues to parts of your life experiences that you still may not have come to terms with.

Take time to recognize and honor any emotions that come up for you on Mother’s Day, and remember that, whatever you feel, it’s normal.


Mom, this year, instead of focusing on what you don’t have on Mother’s Day, take time to celebrate and honor what you do have–strength, courage, and the love of and for your children. Shepherd’s Village is here to pray with you and for you. You are never alone. If you need prayer or to talk to someone about the feelings you’re having about Mother’s Day, please fill out our Prayer Form or call our 24-Hour Prayer Line.

Mother’s Day Poems

by Robert Louis Stevenson

You too, my mother, read my rhymes
For love of unforgotten times,
And you may chance to hear once more
The little feet along the floor.

The Mother

by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Here I lean over you, small son, sleeping
Warm in my arms,
And I con to my heart all your dew-fresh charms,
As you lie close, close in my hungry hold,
Your hair like a miser’s dream of gold,
And the white rose of your face far fairer,
Finer, and rarer
Than all the flowers in the young year’s keeping;
Over lips half parted your low breath creeping
Is sweeter than violets in April grasses;
Though your eyes are fast shut I can see their blue,
Splendid and soft as starshine in heaven,
With all the joyance and wisdom given
From the many souls who have stanchly striven
Through the dead years to be strong and true.Those fine little feet in my worn hands holden
Where will they tread?
Valleys of shadow or heights dawn-red?
And those silken fingers, O, wee, white son,
What valorous deeds shall by them be done
In the future that yet so distant is seeming
To my fond dreaming?
What words all so musical and golden
With starry truth and poesy oldenShall those lips speak in the years on-coming?
O, child of mine, with waxen brow,
Surely your words of that dim tomorrow
Rapture and power and grace must borrow
From the poignant love and holy sorrow
Of the heart that shrines and cradles you now!Some bitter day you will love another,
To her will bear
Love-gifts and woo her – then must I share
You and your tenderness! Now you are mine
From your feet to your hair so golden and fine,
And your crumpled finger-tips – mine completely,
Wholly and sweetly;
Mine with kisses deep to smother,
No one so near to you now as your mother!
Others may hear your words of beauty,
But your precious silence is mine alone;
Here in my arms I have enrolled you,
Away from the grasping world I fold you,
Flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone!

The Song Of The Old Mother
by William Butler Yeats

I rise in the dawn, and I kneel and blow
Till the seed of the fire flicker and glow;
And then I must scrub and bake and sweep
Till stars are beginning to blink and peep;
And the young lie long and dream in their bed
Of the matching of ribbons for bosom and head,
And their day goes over in idleness,
And they sigh if the wind but lift a tress:
While I must work because I am old,
And the seed of the fire gets feeble and cold.
