Dear Fellow Mother,
As Mothers’ Day approaches, I want to share my heart of gratitude and encouragement to you. Over the next few days as many families gather around to celebrate the mothers in their lives, this will look differently in every home and every heart.
Mothers’ Day means different things and marks different events in the lives of all mothers. Each mother, regardless of how long she was a mother should know and feel love today.
Mothers Raising Children
Dear Mother whose children are around her every waking moment of every day,
Cherish these moments, these memories. Delight in the giggles, the messes, and the incessant questions of life. Gather your kiddos upon your lap every chance you get and shower them with endless hugs and kisses. Let them explore and be willing to explain even if it takes a while. Hold as tightly to the mundane memories as you hold the exciting ones. Every moment is a memory with remembering.
For Mothers Never Held Their Children
To the mother who only held her child for a brief moment, a few years, or not at all, I celebrate you today. Many words I write, focus on my two beautiful children and I am grateful for them. But I will never forget that I am mom to three children.
So, sweet Friend, regardless of how long you held or carried your child, you have earned the title “Mother” and you should feel cherished today. I want you to know that as children celebrate their mothers around the table, beaches, and backyards, I’m thinking of you too.
Your Children Are Grown
Sweet Mother who children are grown and have lives of their own,
I admire you! Oh the years of wisdom and insight you must have after raising children for many years. Today, remember you are cherished and blessed. Can I encourage you to continue pouring into the young mothers around you? We need your guidance and wisdom as we walk through this marvelous tumultuous journey of motherhood.
Dear mothers everywhere – you are cherished, loved, celebrated, and seen today. Regardless of where you are in your motherhood journey,
Rest In Him,
Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.
