What do you say to the woman who taught you all you know?
At 4 years of age: “My Mommy can do anything!”
At 8 years of age: “My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!”
At 12 years of age: “My Mother doesn’t really know quite everything.”
At 14 years of age: “Naturally, Mother doesn’t know that, either.”
At 16 years of age: “Mother? She’s hopelessly old-fashioned.”
At 18 years of age: “That old woman? She’s way out of touch!”
At 25 years of age: “Well, she might know a little bit about it.”
At 35 years of age: “Before we decide, let’s get Mom’s opinion.”
At 45 years of age: “Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?”
At 65 years of age: “Wish I could talk it over with Mom.”
The writer of Proverbs puts it this way…
“When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness. Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her.” (Proverbs 31:26–28, NLT)
To the woman who taught you unconditional love, particularly during every argument you had with her when you still saw nothing but love in her eyes. To the woman who taught you compassion, picking you up when you felt broken, and holding you when you needed a shoulder to cry on. To the woman who protected you, nurtured you, and raised you to be the person you are today.
To the woman who gave you everything she could, and never asked for anything in return. If there’s one thing we can say, it’s THANK YOU, for all you have taught us. To every mom today…HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!…you are a blessing!
