A mother’s love
is always there
It takes more to be a mother than carrying a child for nine months and nurturing it. More than giving birth to a child. It takes a lot of time, effort and lots of sleepless nights.
Moms got through sickness, diaper changing and bottle feeding. But it is worth it all. Mothers try to protect their children from harm and danger. When they get hurt we pick them up and cuddle them and kiss away their tears. We hold them and rock’em until we know they’re all right. When we had to spank them, we would say, “it hurts me more than you,” (yea right, mom!).
When they are little they step on your toes. When they get older they step on your heart. But we forgive them. Because that is the way God made us mothers, with love unconditional.
We try to give sound advice when they were growing up, and hoped they would listen. We weren’t always right. Please forgive us, but we did our best. We correct our children and tried to bring them up in admiration and the nourishment of the Lord.
Mother’s Day has passed, but a mother’s love is forever.
