A very Happy Mother’s Day to all of you out there who are mothers.
As you already know, I am blessed to have two amazing daughters.
I woke up this morning just praising God for the gift of being a mom 25 and 23 years ago.
And for all the time with them leading up to today.
Isn’t it fun to think back over years and years of memories?
Remember their first smile? Giggle? Roll over? Step? Word?
First day of Kindergarten? First play date? Friend? Favorite dress?
I could go on and on….
If you’ve got some in your home this morning, grab ’em and give them a big hug and smooch.
If they live in another location, make sure you give them an air hug over the phone today.
Then thank the Lord for His gift to you that you get to enjoy every day, not just on Mother’s Day!
Then go outside and enjoy this beautiful day that the Lord has made!
And to you also!
I was woken up this morning by the boys arguing over chores. But even with that I can give praises, because I get the opportunity to teach them how to work together. (Ok honestly, that wasn’t my first thought about their arguing, but given a few minutes in the shower, I came around to a better perspective) 😉
We’re off to the beach to enjoy the beautiful weather we’ve been given and then maybe a nice dinner out.
I hope everyone else is having a great Mother’s Day!
Have you read the book entitled, One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp? I am not finished reading it, but your whole sentence about giving praises when the kids are arguing sounded just like the author! Good for you! That is not usually my first thought either, but isn’t the shower a great “think tank”? There’s alot of great wisdom being imparted in that place! Maybe it’s because there is enough peace and quiet that we can hear the Lord talk to us there. 🙂
Have a great time at the beach and a fun dinner. Sounds like a perfect day!
I agree with an AMEN.
