Mothers are intersting creatures. Since becoming a mother, i’ve come to see things from 2 sides – both as an offspring & as a mother. Right now, i live in the “high-octane” middle of both worlds (as i sit here writing, my little men are wrestling w my big man, while Isabell designs her new bank savings box). I am fully offspring, in that i work pretty closely w my mom & i’m quite thoroughly integrated w care for & interaction with my kids. Consequently, Mother’s Day is the collision of significant portions of my life.
In the fullest sense of the word, Mother’s Day is designed to celebrate life. I say this because there’s not a single one of us that doesn’t have a mother (dead or alive). Mothers (and Fathers – but we’ll celebrate Father’s Day next month) are significant conduits through which God gives us the gift of life and life is very good. May your Mother’s Day be filled w gratitude to God for His gift of life and gratitude for our mothers & the things they’ve invested in our lives. Happy Mother’s Day!
