Today, May 14, is Mother’s Day, a day to remember and celebrate our mothers. Some of our mothers are living. Wonderful! What a blessing! For some of us, our mothers have passed on. Our mothers live on in our hearts and always be a part of us and our memories.
One of my favorite memories is about my mother waiting for me after school. Our farmhouse porch had a swing and we sat there to talk. I told her about my day, and she listened. Sometimes we talked for 5 minutes. Sometimes for half hour or more. I always appreciated the time she took with me. It was our special time together. It was a break in our day. For her, a break from work. For me a break after school. We then did our farm chores. Some days we had misunderstandings and be upset. This happened more often when I was a teenager. But we always talked through our differences. Then we understood and forgave each other.
Ephesians 4:32 “And be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving each other, just as God also in Christ forgave you.” (WEB)
I’m sure you all have your own memories of your mother. God Bless our mothers.
