Today is a day for the Queen of the House. Almost everyone tries to reminisce the goodness and the love blossoming and excessively outpouring from every mother’s heart. I am now a mom myself for thirteen years and as the day is being celebrated , I strongly feel the wisdom I learned and observed from each and every mom I’ve met along my journey to motherhood. Great qualities adorns every mommy. Love, courage, patience, sacrifice , understanding….name it and most mother possess it. However, what I observed ranks next to love is a mom’s quality and capacity to sacrifice. A loving mother is round-the-clock willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of her children and her family. “I’d rather be hurt than see any of my kids get hurt” …is what we will mostly hear from a mom. This “sacrifice” has rooted from God when He sacrificed to save us from our sins. This quality also makes a loving mother a good friend; sacrificing for the good of everyone to keep everything in order–creating love, peace and unity. But God is so good…sacrifices are being rewarded with supernatural favor in any different ways.
Charged to experience. Today I did not request for a day off from work considering it’s Mother’s day, letting my colleagues have the chance to have their day with their families. I am a person who loves to celebrate every single occasion, especially if it is about for the family. I consider today as more than just a family day. However I am bound to do my duty at work. But God has a gift to me. Today I received some gifts (books, health DVD, and some religious notes and items ) from a couple i believe was sent by Him to make it an extraordinary wonderful day at work! What a grateful day! God has made my day!
To my mom, my mom-in-law, and to all the mothers on this planet Earth….may God continue to shower you with blessings as you unselfishly give everything of yourself to your beloved family.
Happy Mother’s day!
