Is it the mother of invention? Is it the mother of Jesus Christ? Is it your own mother? The answer I think is all of the above.
Isn’t it time we started honoring our mothers all year long instead of just on one special day of the year? Mothers Day is coming. Have you been honoring and respecting and loving your mother every day of the year to get ready for this big event?
It seems to me we ought to show some appreciation for how we got here granted that God’s fine hand is imprinted on our very conception. Without our mother’s cooperation and nurturing love we wouldn’t be here.
What about all the life lessons our mothers have taught us? Shouldn’t she get daily credit for teaching us about life and love and having faith and God?
I think it is time to stop taking mothers for granted. Those of us that are old enough should know better. Let’s not forget how we got here and whom we have to be thankful to for the blessings of life.
So let’s remember our mothers, our faith, and our God, and give thanks for being alive. Let’s give thanks for all the bandaged fingers and tears wiped away from insult or hurt when we were growing up. Let’s not forget the caring and kindness. Let’s not forget our mother’s faith in God and in us, and the moral compass she provided us with.
Let’s not forget those of us whose mothers have passed. We have no one to celebrate Mother’s day with except our wives and our own families. But we do have our cherished memories. We can remember special times. We can remember a mother’s love, and so can our children.
So if your mother is still with you whether it is in memory of fun times past, or in the appreciation of this special day to celebrate our mothers, let’s make the most of this opportunity to consecrate the greatness of our mothers and the mothers of our children.
Let’s not forget our mothers and our children’s mothers: not on their special day, and not on every other day of our lives. Let’s celebrate.
