One thing in this life is for certain.
We all have mothers.
This is mine. ♡
She’s no longer living here on earth with us. Out of sight, out of mind is not necessarily a valid phrase. Rarely is there a day that I don’t think of her. I miss her dearly! Especially on days like today. Holidays are always hard. She was always the glue that kept our family together.
She was the epitome of the Proverbs 31 woman. She was never idle. She never stopped doing for others. She was strong and kind and a born leader. She loved and was loved by most everyone she met. She had one husband and one child, both of which she loved fervently for over 50 years. Her family meant the world to her.
I’m pretty confident that my mother is now in heaven. Wherever your mother may be today, I encourage you to reach out and tell her you love her. I wish I could tell mine.
I’m a mom myself. Three times over. Each time was just as special as the last. I can assure you, we moms all like being acknowledged. Especially by our children. In fact we love it. Our job is to love our young. Give them roots to grow and wings to fly. All at the appropriate time. God’s timing. God’s perfect timing.
May all the mothers out there feel love from their children today. If your mother is no longer living, I encourage you to find any mother that is that may have somehow touched your life. Acknowledge her in some way.
Thank you to all the mothers out there! For your love, your guidance, your discipline, your support. We wouldn’t be here without you!
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.
Love and laughter,
