It has come again. That day when we remember to let our moms know in special ways, how much they mean to us. Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms! You are indeed special!
I’m all for this day of celebration. But, I also think that it is better to let them know every day in small and big ways what they mean to you. It only takes a minute to send a text, make a phone call, Skype in, or better yet, get together with them in person. Don’t get too busy that you don’t have time. Most moms will tell you that their greatest treasure is being with their family. One better? Go to church with her! Score!! That touches the heart of a momma more that you can ever imagine.
Why do I encourage you to make it a point to let them know every day? One day in 1991, I went about my day like any other day. I went to work and after work, I went on into Seattle and attended my sign language class. I was half way through my class when someone came in and gave me a message to call my son. I left the classroom to call my son only to find out that my mom had just had a massive heart attack and did not survive. No more time to communicate, share projects, do things together, or to tell her I love her. No one knows the time or place. If you don’t have your mom, as I don’t now, then do something in her honor tomorrow.
Let your love ones know how important they are to you. Thank your momma if you are blessed to still have her. Tell her how much you appreciate everything she does, and for being who she is. Not perfect. Just a woman who is trying to do the best she can with what she knows at this point in time. We all need time to grow into ourselves. Some have more time to grow than others.
Time…give her some of yours.
Walking the journey with you…
