Reflections on Motherhood

Image

I am enjoying my Mother’s Day weekend!  On Friday evening, I had the pleasure of picking up my oldest daughter from her college dorm and helping her to get settled in her first apartment.  She just completed her first year of college.  She called me yesterday to share  that she was blessed with her first job which will help her with her summer expenses.  It is a blessing for me to see my young adult children embracing their independence.  I felt such peace and joy sharing in her new adventure.

On Saturday, Christina and I attended the Mother-Daughter Tea at church.  We had a lovely time, hearing about the history of tea and the importance of taking time to BE with one another.  We are much too busy, taking tea gives us the chance too slow down and communicate face to face.

On Sunday, I was treated to breakfast in bed and a wonderful card from my three youngest children.  Ha!  Now I know that they can cook a decent breakfast!

In church, we celebrated the newest mother, the mother with the most children, and the oldest mother.  Our oldest mother was 103 years old!  I pray that God will bless me to be as healthy and beautiful when I reach 103 years old.

My oldest son, called me this evening to wish me Happy Mother’s Day.  It was great to hear his voice and hear his plans for the summer.  He just completed his third year of college.  I am so excited to watch him find his way and hear how he is creating a life for himself.   I am thankful that he made the time to give me a call to wish me Happy Mother’s Day.

I am so thankful that God chose me to be my children’s mother.  They have been a blessing to me.  Through their individual interests, I have grown and explored so many areas of life.  I look forward to seeing what they have to share with me as each day goes by.

I wish every mother and every mother figure a wonderful Mother’s Day!  Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hugs!

  1. Agreed that you both look absolutely beautiful! And your tribute to being a Mom was just as beautiful… it is so good to hear perspective from the other end. I especially loved that you mentioned how much you have grown and learned form their individual interests- I’ve never thought about that before. You are definitely blessed… and remind me that I am as well. Thank you~
