Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day in Australia when many of us reflect on the mother we have or had. The bond between a mother and her children is something so special that it can never be truly broken. There is always a hope that underlines everything.

I also want to pay tribute to our mothers in law. They are often derided in comedy but they are special too if for no other reason than they gave us their son. They too have their special place in our hearts.

As in all things some mother's are better than others and some kids treat their mothers better than others. Some ladies so desperately would love to hold a child of their own in their arms and others have that joy snatched from them far too soon.
“No man is poor who has a godly mother,” Abraham Lincoln said. If mothers everywhere were godly ones, there will be no poverty in the world.

A mother can be the best friend we have. When trials heavy and when adversity strikes; when friends desert us and trouble surrounds us, yet she cling to us and believe in us. She will counsel us and help peace to return to our hearts.

God knew what he was doing.

God had a special plan for women especially for mothers and hold them in high regard and so should we. Mothers continue to impact their families in their own way. It is often said that values are caught, not taught. Mothers should show by example how lives should be lived meaningfully.

MOTHERS are truly amazing.

They have strengths that amaze men.
They carry children, they carry hardships, and they carry burdens.
However they can hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in. They stand up for injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution
They go without new shoes so their children can have them.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their loved ones get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a new marriage.
They are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.

Mothers come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a mother is what makes the world spin!
Mothers do more than just give birth. They bring joy and hope. They give compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Mothers have a lot to say and a lot to give.

A wise investment

A a relationship can only be special if we have invested time and effort into the nurturing of relationships with our mothers and our children. There are all kinds of Mothers in this world. Some mothers are 'grown' from cherished relationships rather than by blood.

May you all be blessed.
