Most mothers don’t feel strong at the end of the day. They’ve spent the last hours finding and serving nutritious meals for the family. Her children have scheduled duties and she works around their schedules in order to accomodate them. She gives her time, talents, love, care and encouragement as they grow into adults. She watches their progress and prays for them daily. Many mothers now are multi-taskers. They not only care for their families, but hold jobs outside the home. There is little time to spend on herself but she does this willingly because she’s a mother.
We often take our mothers for granted. We don’t always appreciate the little things they’ve done to make us into the people we’ve become. What we considered pushing and prodding was only for our benefit in the long run.
We are not merely clones of our parents. We’re individuals who are an extension of them. We share the same DNA, many of the same physical features and often the same values. I was blessed to have a wonderful mother, but not all have been so lucky. Memories are made by mothers along with tradition, good manners, positive thoughts, rules for living, morality, faith and love. They are also the epitome of strength.
To all of the mothers out there, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY and may God bless this day for you as well of all the days of your life.
“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” Proverbs 31:28-29
