Mothers day is this Sunday. Don’t forget to honor your mother! When my mom was alive, I loved showering her with gifts and love on her special days. Mothers Day and her birthday were very special times. She meant the world to me, and every Mother’s Day it hurts just a little that I don’t have her physical presence anymore, that I don’t get to spoil her, and that I don’t get to see her light up when she opens her gifts. My joy came from seeing her smile, from hearing her laugh, and oh how infectious her laugh was! She had a way of making anyone feel special and very loved.
Listen! Even if you don’t have the best relationship with your mom, she gave you life and she deserves honor for that alone. Moms are going to be who they are, just as you are who you are, and no one can change you, right! The bible tells us that life is a vapor, (a breath) which today is and tomorrow is gone. It also tells us to, “Honor your father and mother (first commandment with a promise from God), that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth” (Ephesians 6:3). Take each and every opportunity that God gives you, to make your mom feel special. Tell her that you love her, hug her as often as you can, kiss her, laugh with her, enjoy what makes her special to you. Take it from me, it will mean so much to you, when all you have left of her is a beautiful memory.
