Mother’s Day weekend is upon us.
I lived a whole lot of years before I realized that all moms are not created equal. Somehow, I landed in the right line and was blessed to have one of those “good ones”–that in itself could count as my gratitude list: having a terrific mom.
But, in the spirit of “Friday’s Five, I’ll list a few connected blessings of motherhood:
Top on my list–Samuel and Sara. They are the reasons I get to call myself a mom. I’m honored to celebrate Mother’s Day every day. They are the gift.
Unconditional love–once you receive it, you realize it’s imperative to share it.
Mama claws–not evident until someone or something threatens the peace of your child. They will come out without warning.
Prayers–a new level of holiness is available when you become a mama. If you have to ask, you’re not a mom yet.
The next level–grandmotherhood. All I can say about that is I’m ready to hold you, Sofia Grace.
Regardless of our circumstances, a mama got us here. Whether you are one, miss one, love one, or hope to be one, Happy Mother’s Day.
