Mom, you may feel overlooked and taken for granted, but you are AMAZING. Even if no one else seems to notice, I’m giving you reasons you deserve to
Reasons to Celebrate Your Amazing Self This Mother’s Day
He is the artist;
you are His masterpiece.
You are that incredible combination
of strength and calm,
of peace and activity,
of intelligence and good humor.
You are your child’s soft place to land,
his shelter when the world hurls stones,
and his rock when sands shift beneath his feet.
You are the one who holds your child accountable,
teaches him to aim high,
and doesn’t allow him to sell himself, or others, short.
You are pardoner of wrongdoings.
and the model showing how and why to seek the Father’s forgiveness.
You are the executioner of plans when plans must be executed
and the manager of time when days are too short.
You are the gentle, tender mother,
the boo-boo kisser when they’re little,
the broken heart healer when they’re older.
You are the one they turn to without words,
when they can’t verbally confide in you
but their friends just aren’t enough
and they need to know they are valued and special and Loved.
You are the one who celebrates every victory
and holds their chin up in defeat.
You model responsibility and the value of work
and still give them the freedom to turn a blind eye to mess every once in a while.
You show them the value of keeping their word,
the importance of looking someone in the eye,
and what it means to shake another’s hand.
Your example leads children to really see another,
to view all, regardless of race or creed or geography or income,
as worthy and valued and loved by their Creator
who is also your Creator and their Creator.
You are the sounding board,
the ground they are free to test,
and the stick by which they measure themselves.
You have been blessed with challenges
not to bend and break you
but to mold and shape you.
You have been given abilities to handle situations others would balk at.
You have cultivated skills that others just don’t have.
You have been given experiences to prepare you for whatever lies ahead – even when you don’t think so!
You have grabbed hold of opportunities others passed by without noticing.
You have the heart to Love without exception.
You are your child’s best example of unconditional, sacrificial, Joyful Love on earth.
And, Mom, that in itself
is worth celebrating!
