This Sunday, May 10, 2020, Mother’s Day is celebrated in America. If it were not for mothers, none of us would be here today. Our mothers provide us with so much love. Our mothers feed us, nurture us, teach us. They usually are the ones we turn to when we need comfort, guidance, and to fix what hurts.
For the ones whose mothers are still alive, tell them every day, but especially this Sunday, that you love them! Yes, you could send your mother a text or an email, but it is best to pick up that cell phone of yours and call your mother. Just as we need to know our mothers love us and are there for us, they need to hear us say how much we love them.
Think of all the things Moms have done with us, for us, and given to us. They read us bedtime stories, went with us to school activities, and drove us to our friends’ homes. And that's just a few. As we became older, they shared recipes, family traditions, and spoke words of wisdom that we can still hear as clearly as the day they told them to us.
Having a child makes you realize that your priorities have changed. Nothing and no one is more important than your child or children. Becoming a mother will be a time of excitement and challenges, but one that you definitely don’t want to miss.
For those of us whose mothers are no longer with us, let us cherish the memories and be blessed for the mother we had.
