Tribute to Mothers

There’s no way to measure the value of mothers. They are so vital to our development. Mothers add quality to their children and the lives that are ahead for them to navigate. In countless ways, the love of mothers is rich, comforting, encouraging and inspiring.

I have such fond memories of my mother. I absolutely loved and adored her. Mama was immensely loving, generous, and deeply effective relative to the impact that she had on her children and people who were part of her life. Gratitude extends to God for the wonderful mother who was given to me and my dear siblings. Certainly, lots of people are super thankful to our Lord for the mothers that are/were in their lives.

Instances occur where mothers aren’t shown sufficient appreciation for who they are and the many things they do to mold, teach, and to extend help. Yes, mothers are sometimes taken for granted and not always highly esteemed.

Global salutes to mothers for their loving postures, sacrificial deeds, protective measures, and the loads of what else they do to aid in the development of their children. Appreciation also extends for the contributions that mothers make to add to others who come into their areas of influence.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t include the folks who are in roles as “mothers” though the subject children aren’t biologically theirs. I commend those people who lovingly take on such responsibilities to help the growth and development of children. Some of those adults sacrifice financially and otherwise to assure quality parenting for young people.

Of course, the roles of mothers and mother figures don’t cease when we reach adulthood. We still need to be attended to by the presence of those deeply beneficial precious people. Their advice often proves priceless; we are better when we heed their wise counsel. Yes, the love attachments of the women who profoundly impact our lives are beyond measure. Profuse gratitude extends to you all.

Thank you, Almighty God.

Matthew 15:4 – KJV
For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: . . .
