God made you. He made you unique and wonderful. You can do things better than anyone else. You have that special crook in your arm and special nooks and crannies in your heart. You make it better with a kiss or a word. You rock Daddy’s world. God made you to nurture His creation. God is the master nurturer and you are His hands on this earth.
Who are you? You are a Mother.
You would give up everything that you ever wanted or desired if it was better for us. Often, you have put yourself last. You protect us and defend us from the hurts that come from others. Each step of the way, you prepare me to eventually leave your nest. You fight fear every moment of every day as you watch me grow and venture out into the world. You pushed me out of the nest even though you didn’t want to. You have faith that moves mountains. You never stop hoping and praying for me. You cry tears behind closed doors because I broke your heart. You see things in me that I can’t even see in myself. You are my biggest cheerleader and my most trusted confidant. I cannot do anything to make you stop loving me. You never give up on me. I remember your skin – the softest that I have ever felt. I remember your flirty smile – the loveliest smile that I have ever seen. You are the most influential person that will ever touch my life.
I know that you worry that you are messing things up and I know that you think that I will only remember the times that you were harsh but I think that you are magical and I remember that you loved me, were gentle and patient with me and that you always did your very best for me. You are the most perfect mother for me.
I sincerely wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all of you that have been called to the highest calling – Motherhood.
