Happy Mother’s Day!
On this wonderful day, we have the great opportunity to celebrate our mothers. Even though they should have MULTIPLE days of the year–actually everyday–we have this day in which we have the opportunity to take an extra moment, an extra opportunity to stop what we are doing and celebrate those special ladies in our lives. When we were children, they were always there to pick us up when we fell down; their kisses made even the worst, scrapped knee feel better.
Today we celebrate all mothers, especially those that we sorely miss and wish we could have one more opportunity to send them a Mother’s day card, one more opportunity to tell them “thank you” for what we neglected to appreciate before, just even one more day… I know many of us feel that way, but there is hope greater than our sorrow.
Today is still a day of celebration, of thanks, and of remembering the wonderful ways in which God has blessed us through the many mothers on this earth. Through sending Himself to this earth in the form of His Son Jesus Christ, our Heavenly Father certainly knew the power of a mother’s love, too. Not only does He know the power of that kind of love, but He also created it! James 1:17 states that every good and perfect give comes from above and that includes our mothers! So today, let’s thank our mothers that are here, and let’s cherish the ones who may have passed on, yet continue to live through the way we carry them within us.
To God–the Creator of our mother’s and their tenderness, thoughtfulness, hugs, smiles, laughter, and love–to Him be all the glory, honor, and praise!
Praying your day is filled with Sonshine,
PS- I love you, Mom! 🙂
