A Mother’s love is Eternal

A mother's love is eternal. Many of us are blessed to have sacred relationships with our mothers. Being a mother does not come naturally for most. The love in guidance that they offer us often comes from their own life experience. A mother and her children have so many opportunities to grow in love. A child views their mother as their everything. They are connected on a level that is comparable with god's love for each of us. It takes a village to raise a family. Many families consist of at least three generations. My mom had six other sisters who also offered love and guidance to each of us. My dad had two sisters and a mom who was the matriarch of the family.

Most of the women who loved me unconditionally are gone now, but I feel their presence and love all the time. Mothers are such a gift to us. It is often too late once they are gone to tell them just how much they have shaped our lives. I am thankful for the many women in my life who have walked beside me. Women who have struggled to be their authentic selves in a man's world. Women who have fought for their right to vote, who have fought to work alongside men in the workplace, and women who choose every day to become mothers in a world that is constantly changing. I know that their love and commitment to their children will change our world for the better.

Today we remember with love the gift of motherhood. A mother's job does not end on Sunday night at midnight of Mother's Day. Their job lasts a lifetime even as we age. So if your mom is still alive, let her know just how much she means to you! Show her by living a life of integrity as a reflection of the love she has freely given you for years. And if your mom has left this earth, celebrate the gift you are today because of the love she offered you.

Thank you, mom, for the many years of love you have tirelessly given to your three daughters, four granddaughters, and great-granddaughter. You are our Matriarch! You have created an incredible standard for us to live by!

I offer two Prayers for our mothers! Happy Mother's Day!

An Irish blessing

There is but one and only one, Whose love will fail you never. One who lives from sun to sun, With constant fond endeavor.

There is but one and only one On earth there is no other. In heaven a noble work was done When God gave us a Mother.

A Mother's Love

There are times when only a mother's love Can understand our tears, Can soothe our disappoints And calm all of our fears. There are times when only a mother's love Can share the joy we feel When something we've dreamed about Quite suddenly is real. There are times when only a mother's faith Can help us on life's way And inspire in us the confidence We need from day to day. For a mother's heart and a mother's faith And a mother's steadfast love Were fashioned by the angels And sent from God above. - Author Unknown
