It’s Mother’s Day and it’s the first Mother’s Day in four years that I have spent without extended family. I have been thinking a lot about the female figures in my life that are all mothers.
My mother and sisters and I. This was in New Zealand, 2005, the one and only time we spent Mother’s Day together. It had been a surprise for my Mother.
My sisters-in-law and my sweet mother-in-law. While living in Hawaii, we started a tradition of going out the night before for Mother’s Day. We have so much fun!! Miss these ladies. I think a trip to Hawaii for Mother’s Day to be with these ladies should be a given. I’m just sayin’.
They are all wonderful women that I have a great time with and am missing them very much on this blessed day. I have learned something from each of these women, and they have helped me in different ways be the kind of mother I am today. Hopefully, if you ask my kids, they will say that it shows.
This past Wednesday, I had the pleasure of helping put together an activity for our youth and we based it around Mother’s Day. At the end of our game that we played I showed them a video put out by our church. It is a non-denominational video. It is a sweet video, perfectly describing what a MOTHER is.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!
