God Bless Our Mothers

No truthful man or woman can negate the magnitude of a mother’s place here on earth and her place in the lives of her children.  Mothers are some of the most important individuals that have ever existed.  Everyone, everywhere, needs to realize this as a Divine reality.  There is a very old, but altogether wise and intensely colorful, Jewish Proverb that says this about mothers, ”God could not be everywhere and therefore He made mothers.”  

When we are young our mothers are like a god.  We see them as all-knowing, helpful, powerful and always present.  Mothers are the women that daily provide us with food, drink and protection.   We don’t always know what to say to our Mothers, to express to them all the gratitude we have for them yet certain great sons and daughters have done this charge tastefully and marvelously.

Countless intellectuals have determined that you cannot really understand all things “Mother.” John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, said this about his mother Susanna Wesley, stating that she was so instrumental in his life that she inevitably affected the movement he started and its direction.  All Americans know that Abraham Lincoln led this nation through perhaps its worst and darkest time of greatest crisis; but who was it that made Abraham Lincoln the man that he was?  He said it was his mother.  "All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.”  "I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me, they have clung to me all my life," Abraham Lincoln.

I would suggest to my readers that there is not a person sitting here that in one, five, ten, a thousand different ways has not been forever influenced by his or her mother.  I determinedly suppose that you cannot understand who a person is and what motivates them until you understand their past.  And you cannot understand a person's past without understanding the source that co-created that person along with God, that being their parents, especially their mothers.

Consider these two statements: 

"An ounce of Mother is worth a ton of priest."  Spanish proverb

"No man is poor who has had a godly mother."  Abraham Lincoln.

To this, I add a few other simple but personal and heartfelt sentiments…

A Mother is like a million drops of dew that have reached out in the early morning hours to greet her children,

A Mother is a special person that knows a lot about thousands of subjects and still humbles herself so as to be the healer of a cold, scrapped knee or the encourager of a tired and cranky little child.

A Mother is like a four-leaf clover, green and bright, royal and purple, white and pure and fragrant like no other could ever be.

A Mother is as delicate as a field full of butterflies on dandelions and as hard as a rock when it comes to protecting her child from harm.

A Mother is unique and special and knows just what to do when it comes to you.  Trust her and follow her instructions and God will bless you, now and forever.
