There are many moms who don’t find much to celebrate on this holiday – those who keep the home fires burning while their husbands are serving their country in far off places; moms who raise their families while dad’s job requires him to travel; moms who have lost a child through miscarriage, illness or tragedy; mothers with special needs children; and those with children that have turned to a life of crime or addiction. 

When we give birth. we are giving life to another human being.  That comes with tremendous responsibility, energy and dedication.  We aren’t always going to be the perfect “Leave it to Beaver” mother.  There are days when our home looks like a tornado went through it.  There are times when we just can’t settle another dispute between siblings or we just don’t have time to get out of our sweats and put on some makeup.  We may feel unappreciated, misunderstood, frustrated or unable to do it all. There are moents when we just plain get tired of the job, but we go on.

Motherhood is one of the most under-rated professions known to mankind.  Moms are purveyors of comfort, deliverers of love and encouragement, merchants of morality and learning, solicitors of peace and understanding.  They are the vessel of God’s handiwork.  Mother’s need a pat on the back each and every day of the year!

Psalm 139:13, “For you formed my inward parts;
    you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”




As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  1. I agree that motherhood is highly underrated. Especially today when most women work outside the home and then all of the motherhood responsibilities too. Thanks!!!
