Letter: Grateful for mothers, as well as our Father

It takes a lot of love to feed and nourish the child while carrying it. It takes more than giving birth to a child. Time and a lot of effort, love and sleepless nights.

Psalms 139:13-16 says, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. Praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”

God, did this was worth it all! You made all the delicate parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for your marvelous workmanship in me.

We take care of the babies when they’re sick, changing diapers, feeding, time keeping them healthy. Mothers protect our children from harm and dangerous things.

When they cry, we cuddle and rock them to make sure they’re all right. When they get older to make them mind, we spank. I told my son it hurts me more than you. Joe says, “Right, Mom.” When they were little, they step on your toes; older our hearts. Most mothers are made with unconditional Love and even grandparents!

When they get older, you try to give sound advice and hope they listen. Not always right. We tried to do our best. We should always bring them up in admiration and nourish of our Lord. Each child has his own unique personality.
