It’s Mother’s Day! I think that it is great to take some time for those who are mothers and those women who play an important part in children’s lives.
I especially would like to honor my wife……
She is an amazing mother and wife. She keeps our family going. She is understanding about the demands of my job and she keeps our home in order. I don’t know what I would do without her in my life.
There are some people who are born to be mothers and wives, I think my wife is one of those people. She loves children and she is constantly looking to improve herself as a mother and as a person.
With the business of life I sometimes forget to tell her how much I love her and how much I appreciate her…..so I want to say that I love you my wife and my love. I can’t thank you enough for all that you so for me and for our children.
I cannot let Mother’s Day pass without the acknowledgement of my mother. I have wonderful, loving parents who have always been there for me throughout my whole life, especially my mother. She was there for me as a child, she supported me throughout my schooling, and always encouraged me. I have had pretty crazy ideas in my life and my mother was there through it all supporting me, encouraging me and loving me. She always gives her advice but is supportive of me even if we go in a different direction. Thanks Mom! I love you!
Mother’s Day is Not for Everyone
However, as much as I love my wife and my mother, Mother’s Day is not happy and positive for everyone. With the celebration of Mother’s Day there is also those who are unable to celebrate this day. Mother’s Day (and Father’s Day) is a day of pain for some people. It is painful for those who have lost mother’s (especially recently), it is painful who have lost important women figures in their life, and it is painful for those who try to have children but are unable too.
There were more than a few tears shed in worship this morning and I can only attribute that too the heartbreak of those who are saddened by this day.
If you love mother’s day or you would rather hide out, I hope you have enjoyed your day and if there is an important mothering figure in your life, you have taken the time to honor them.
