This Sunday is Mother's Day~ a time set aside to remember and honor mothers. I believe that all women are mothers in one form or another~ not just those with birth, adopted or step children, but all women who show love to and nurture others.
I have to share a story about our son Mark who was three at the time. We had adopted him as an infant when we lived in The Philippines, and it was quite obvious that he was not our birth child. I was disciplining him one day and he said to me, "You can't tell me what to do, you are not my real mother!" I responded back to him, "Oh yes I am...I have fed you, clothed you, and loved you with my whole heart~ I am as real as it gets!" I never heard another word about that subject again (chuckle).
I have had the privilege of having 3 mothers....my mom who raised me until I was 12, when she was no longer capable, and my two older sisters who took over the job after that. They all fed me, clothed me, and loved me with their whole hearts ~ doing the best they could at the time.
Love is the most important gift we can give anyone. The Bible devotes a whole chapter to it ~ I Corinthians 13. And all of us know the value of Jesus's perfect love for each of us ~ dying for our sins.
On this Mother's Day I pray that each of you have been blessed with the gift of a mother's love from someone who has touched your life, and in return may we be that gift to others each and every day!
