Last week I posted something every day about mothers. Yesterday was Mother’s Day and I didn’t post a word. I basked in the love of my family, even though we weren’t all together, I know that I was in their thoughts as much as they were in mine. The above cartoon speaks volumes about motherhood. I still do this if someone is sitting in the front seat of the car with me – no matter how old they are or whether they are part of my family or not. It’s like one of those mother things that’s emblazoned on our hearts. Another thing is making sure they have their lunches packed for school. I still have nightmares about that, and my kids haven’t carried a lunch to school for more than 40 years.
Being a mom is one of the greatest gifts God has ever given me – besides the promise of eternal life and a wonderful spouse. As we look past all the gifts, flowers, beautiful cards and chocolates, there is so much more to this special day. We set one day aside for the benefit of moms when they should be celebrated every day. The same is true of fathers. Showing our love is so much more that the gifts. It is thrilling to know that you have made an impact on your child’s life, especially when you have been so impacted by theirs. So, Happy Mother’s Year to all you moms out there. May God continue to walk with you on this journey and give you strength, fortitude, patience and perseverance, because it’s worth it!
