Mother’s Day

Today is Mothers Day.  I once read that more cards are sent to “Moms” on this day than Christmas cards, Valentines Cards and all other cards combined.  Why is that?  I believe it is because all of us has a Mom!

Here are some very wonderful sayings about Moms.

“You never realize how much your mother loves you till you explore the attic – and find every letter you ever sent her, every finger painting, clay pot, bead necklace, old Easter basket, cardboard Santa, paper-lace Mother’s Day card and school report card since day one.”  By Pam Brown

“She was my bridge.  When I needed to get across, she steadied herself long enough for me to run across safely.”   by Renita Weems.

“A Mother holds her children’s hands for awhile, their hearts forever.”

“My Mom taught me I could be anything I wanted to be.  She taught me that nothing is impossible if you have someone who believes in you! “

“My Mom showed me that God is everywhere, all the time.  He is in the new green leaves of Spring and in the sleeping bulbs under the snow in winter.  My Mom taught us to see the beauty in Fall’s crunchy leaves and in the song of the Cardinal. My heart is full when I go out into nature which is God’s classroom.”

“I never realized how many kids were always in our home until I had my own.  My Mom was a saint for feeding all those kids and cleaning up and making us laugh and giving us a lifetime of instruction as she baked and served.”

Go pick up the phone and call your Mom!  Tell her thank you and that you love her.  She is like a large empty vessel which is dry and waiting for the life giving water to be poured in from your voice which she cherishes so much.
