I have to admit something to you. I don’t really like Mother’s Day.
I know that may seem somewhat controversial since I am the loving mother to three girls. But, let me explain. I waited eight years into my marriage to have children and it was only after my first daughter was born that I realized every day henceforth was going to be Mother’s Day for me.
My three girls gave me a new perspective on life. I have always believed that I was lucky, but after my children were born, I knew I was lucky. Those feelings remain to this day. I also know that it is easy to become a Mom but it is not so easy to be a really good Mom.
The nicest compliment I ever received was when my own mother told me what a great job I was doing raising my daughters. I knew the compliment was sincere because it came from someone who truly understood what being a great mother was all about. High praise indeed.
I don’t need gifts, flowers, or chocolates… God has already blessed me with more than I can ever repay. Their names are Taylor, Tori, and jj.
I am happy on this Mother’s Day and I am happy every day. My precious girls. My precious God.
How happy is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in His ways! You will surely eat what your hands have worked for. You will be happy, and it will go well for you…May the Lord bless you from Zion, so that you will see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life, and will see your children’s children. ~Psalms 128:1-2, 5-6
