I want to wish all of you a happy Mother’s Day! Notice that I didn’t specify…just to people that have children. All of us women, are mothers in one way or another. We have huge influence in the lives of others. I believe that every woman that is born…has the nurturing instincts of a mother.
Sometimes, things happen in life and there are dads that step into the shoes of nurturer, plus carry the responsibility of protector and provider. My hat is off to you, if that is your situation. It’s a hard one. Some moms have to fill both roles as well. I am saying a little prayer for you right now. Little prayers make a difference, because the go to the heart of a great big God.
If you could ask my husband…what makes my eyes light…like nothing else, I believe that he would say…”Our children.” He might say Rocky Road ice cream, or prizeys or junkin’ or baby farm animals…but in his heart of hearts he would know that it’s our children. You see, our first little tiny baby…got to go back and live with Jesus. It was a heart-wrenching time for us. We weren’t very far into the pregnancy…but we believe that life starts at conception and we felt a huge loss. People that don’t give others enough credit during miscarriage…should really rethink their approach. It’s very tough. Be gentle, friends.
I would like to tell you that I am a sweet, gentle, kind and loving mother. I’m sure that I have been a little of that…at least once or twice. 🙂 Actually…I am a “Come on! You can do it! Get back in there and whip it!” kind of mother. I lived with my dad for several years growing up. Can you tell? I am a “Learn to bait that hook!” kind of mom. I am also a “Hey…get in there and do your chores!” kind of mom. In all of that though…at the end of the day I am this mom:
“Come here and let me hug the hurt away.”
“She said what? Well..we will see about that.”
“Let’s ask Jesus to take care of this.”
“Jesus loves you more than anyone on the planet.”
Guess what? God thinks that you are awesome.”
“See that beauty out through there? God created that!”
“I love theses babies, right here.”
“Thank you Jesus…for these babies, Amen.”
I have an amazing mother. She has a heart of gold. I have learned so much from her. She has an amazing attitude of service towards her family. I am truly blessed…to be a mother…to have a mother and to enjoy the company of every woman that I know. We are all mothers. Don’t ever forget that.
I am Momma Bear, hear me roar!
