Right after the accident, I had a terrible thought; I wondered if I was still a mom. I shared this concern with a pastor-friend of mine. This was his response (via e-mail)
I loved this response by a fellow pastor on a forum I asked for prayer for you – Today I told them of your question of whether or not you are still a Mom, articulating to them the things people experience that we would never think of if not having grieved as they do.
Here was his response:
“Damn straight she can. She is-right now a mom because her son still is.
Thank God for the Gospel.”
Thank God for friends who will remind me of the truth of the Gospel.
