Today, we celebrate Mother’s Day and recognize the wonderful gift we have in our mother. I’m personally very thankful to have a mother that has poured limitless love over all of her children, each in a unique and special way.
Mothers make many sacrifices for their children. As an adult, I now appreciate the challenge it was to raise six children in one house.
Mother’s are far more than people; they represent new beginnings and hope.
One of the important gifts our mothers give to us is that they help us to see God, albeit not in a religious sense. Mothers give of themselves as they raise their children. From the disappearance of ‘me time’ to the physical sacrifice required to give birth.
This is one of the ways that we see God in our lives, as well as show it to others.
Motherhood is one of the selfless gifts we encounter in our lives. I’m grateful for a mother that has poured out selfless love to all her children.
Today, I am also thankful for Azar. She has shown true love with her time, wisdom, laughter, and joy. My mother raised me as a child to know love – Azar has helped me to be a man that is love.
We encounter many loves in our lives, with few as sweet as the love of our mother.
Thanks, Mom. I love you.
