A Mother’s Greatest Gift
Today, I celebrate my Mom, not just today, but every day.
I’ve been listening to Mother’s Day comments on the radio during my morning and evening commutes. According to one survey, the number one answer for what mother’s want for Mother’s Day is sleep. Another survey asked kids what their mother’s want for Mother’s Day and the children said they want them to do their chores.
As I am flooded by the wonderful memories from my childhood, I say thank you Mom for all that you have taught me. I am a righteous and godly woman because of you.
From the moment I was born, you loved me. You took care of me. You fed me.
You taught me to clean my room and wash the dishes.
You taught me to brush my teeth and say my prayers.
You taught me to mind my manners and be on my best behavior around company.
You taught me that being neighborly builds relationships.
You taught me to be kind and serve others.
You taught me the importance of family, celebrations, and social gatherings.
You taught me about culture and good food.
You taught me the value of hard work.
You taught me important life lessons and that life is good, but it can also be hard.
You taught me that when I fall, I need to get up.
You taught me to turn to the Lord in the middle of the storm;
that God is our creator as well as our Father.
If it were not for you, Mom, I might not be saved this day.
. . .From infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 3:15
Today I want to thank my Mom for the greatest gift any child could ever receive. My Mother brought me up in the church and in the Word, and that is why I know my Savior! I thank my Mom for the faith that I have, because I learned about our Heavenly Father from my Mother.
Thank you Mom for teaching me about God! There is no greater gift you could have given me.
Today, I celebrate my Mom; today and every day!
