Well, Mother’s Day is Sunday! I ran across this quote and just fell in love with it!
Not only did I experience this growing up with the mother I was blessed to be given, but I have felt the influence of so many “mothers” in my life. I have heard from some friends how much they don’t like Mother’s Day because they feel guilty for not being the perfect mom. I also have friends who don’t like it because they don’t have children. All I can say to ALL MOTHERS everywhere..whether you have borne children or not is exactly that. YOU are a mother. We mother a child every time we talk to one, hug one, help one feel loved and let them know how special they are. And regardless of your station in life, I hope you can appreciate that role and blessing that each of us has to influence a child for good or for bad! There is NO influence so powerful as that of being a mother..so influence for good, knowing that none of us are perfect, but each of us have in us the ability to nurture, love, and influence for good.
And here is a sweet little video to remind you just how amazing you are:
“Life doesn’t come with a manual…it comes with a Mother.” (I love this.)
Happy Mother’s Day!
