Thanks Mama!

The hand that rocks the cradle moves the world.

Somebody said that a child is carried in his or her mother’s womb for nine months. Somebody does not know that a child is carried in his or her mother’s heart for a lifetime.

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you have had a baby. Somebody does not know that once you are a mother, normal is history.

Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct. Somebody never took a 3-year-old shopping.

Somebody said being a mother is boring. Somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a learner’s permit.

Somebody said good mothers never raise their voices. Somebody never came out the back door just in time to see her son hit a golf ball through the neighbor’s window.

Somebody said you do not need an education to be a mother. Somebody never helped her daughter with distance learning.

Somebody said you cannot love all your kids the same. Somebody does not have kids.

Somebody said a mother can find all the answers in books. Somebody has never had a child stuff beans up his nose.

Somebody said the hardest part of motherhood is giving birth. Somebody never watched her child get on the bus for the first day of Kindergarten.

Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married. Somebody does not know marriage only adds a child to the mother’s family.

Somebody said a mother’s job is finished when her last child leaves home. Somebody never had grandchildren.

Somebody said you never need to tell your mother you love her. Somebody is not a mother.

To mothers everywhere, we say thank you!

For the sleepless nights, thank you.

For the stressful days, thank you.

For everything you do day after day, thank you.

A Mother’s Influence

A lasting influence.

Mrs. Jones relaxed each evening by reading her Bible. After seeing this practice for several months, her 4-year-old daughter asked, “Are you ever going to finish that book?”

A mother’s influence is powerful. Her children are observing and absorbing everything she does. The life she is molding is greatly influenced by her.

Timothy is an illustration of someone who was influenced by his grandmother and mother. Paul writes in 2 Timothy 1:5, “I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice, and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.”

A Godly mother and grandmother were an influential part of Timothy’s life. They provided Timothy with wisdom, love, and grace. Their influence helped him find his way in life.

Theodore Roosevelt once remarked, “Praying mothers are one of America’s greatest assets.” Mothers, thank you for your influence and impact on our lives.


A Mother’s Love

“All that I am my mother made me,” remarked John Quincy Adams.

An angel was sent down from Heaven with the assignment to bring back earth’s 3 most beautiful gifts. The angel picked a rose as one. The second was a baby’s smile. The angel was searching for the third, and he was so impressed by a mother’s sacrificial love for her son, he chose it as number three.

When the angel returned to Heaven, he discovered the rose had withered, the baby’s smile went away, but the mother’s love was still there.

There is nothing more beautiful than a mother’s love. The sacrifice, the enduring love which never fades is beautiful. As the old song says, “Thank God for mothers.”
