Psalm 139:13-16 says, “You made all the delicate inner parts in my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb.”

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 sleepless nights.

Moms go through sickness, diaper changing and bottle feeding, but it is worth it all! Mothers try to protect their children from harm and ganer. When they get hurt, we pick them up and cuddle them and kiss away their tears. We hold them and rock them until we know they are all right. When we had to spank them, we would say, “It hurts me more than you.” (Yeah, right, Mom!) My son would say “spending time together.”

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 love. And parents adopt children and grandparents too. God loves unconditionally to appreciate them.

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 the admiration and nourishment of the Lord. “Each child has a unique personality.”

So we have recognition for all mothers on Mother’s Day to honor her, to cherish her, to love her like she loved us all through the years. Give her hugs and kisses. Say to her, “Mom, we love you.” Give her a gift or take her out to eat in appreciation, because God gave you a gift, a mother to love until God takes her home to heaven.
