A Mother’s Day poem written in the early 1900’s is:
M is for the Many things she gave me,
O means only that she’s growing Old.
T is for the Tears she shed to save me,
H is for her Heart of purest gold.
E is for her Eyes with love light shining,
R means Right and Right she’ll always be.
Put them all together and they spell MOTHER.
Mothers can love, give of themselves, cook, clean, wash clothes, put Band-Aids on scrapes, bring a smile to a child’s face … be the first one up in the morning or the last one down at night. They juggle a lot of things including raising children, working at jobs, managing a home, and sometimes finding time for themselves.
Children need the unselfish love of a mother and long life is promised to all who show honor to them. Ephesians 6:1-3 says, Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise: that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.
Mothers make up an extremely important part of our lives. So, whether it’s a Mother’s Day card, dinner out, a hug or a kiss on the cheek, we should show we care. It’s so important to give our love to those dedicated women in our lives who regularly sacrificed for us. If you can still tell your mother you love her, do it. Don’t take her for granted. My mother sacrificed for me in so many ways. I wish I could still tell her that I love her!
