Belated Mom’s Day?

Happy Belated Mommy’s Day


I have been thinking about Mother’s Day. I love being a mom, and it will always be the best “job” I have ever had or will have…

But being a mother is more than a “biological” issue.

And it is more than taking one day a year to celebrate motherhood.

I know folks whose mothers have abandoned them. I know gals who have wanted to be a mother and for some reason have not been able to do so. There are yet others that have lost their mothers to disease and death. I hurt for them.

There are special ladies in my own life that have taken on “motherly” roles..spiritually, academically and emotionally. I don’t tell them thank you often enough.

I make every effort possible to let my own mom know how much she means to me. We simply don’t talk without saying “love you” before leaving or hanging up!

And confession here…I seem to “mother” all those I come in contact with. Most of the time I don’t even realize I am doing it. And sometimes people would prefer that I not do it.  I have to really watch that!

I remember when I first started my teaching career, students accidentally called me mom. The last several years that accidentally called me grandma. After I got over the fact I was aging right before their eyes and my own, but somehow I always counted it a compliment.

The pressure of “Mother’s Day” does not escape me. Calls, presents, dinners, cards…to recognize the value of one’s mother. While I don’t disagree with the celebration and totally enjoy seeing and hearing from my sons and daughters in law on this special day ….I so appreciate it when I hear from them throughout the week. When they choose to spend time with me because they want to and not because some holiday suggests it.

Me and the boysme and the girls

So what is the point? Forget Mother’s Day?

No, not at all. But let’s just acknowledge our mothers and those that “nurture” us on other days…not just one day a year.

Mark 12:31
The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

Simply one another…daily.

~Be Blessed

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~

Thanks for stopping by! Would love to hear from you....
