Thank You Mothers!

Meet Linda Owens. She is someone who is making the world a better place. In the past 34 years, she has been a mom to 81 infants. As a resource parent, this 78-year-old mother has welcomed the littlest of people into her home until they could find a forever home. But she doesn’t stop there, she shares what she has learned about each child with the new parents, and offers a few tips and tricks along the way to ease the adjustment for the new family. There’s always supplies in her home, and she’s always willing to take in a new child at a moment’s notice. And yes, she remembers each of them by name.

She is the kind of hero who never requests praise and she is rarely recognized, but she is making the world a much better place each day. She is a mom, and she is one of many unsung heroes who wear the title of mother.

Our world is graced with motherhood, and our moms make it a much better place. Theodore Roosevelt once remarked, “Praying mothers are one of America’s greatest assets.” “All that I am my mother made me,” remarked John Quincy Adams. There’s nothing like a mother’s sacrifice, love, and influence.

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.

Mothers, thank you! We don’t say it enough, but we’re grateful that the Lord has blessed us with you.

Give Mama a Call

She is tender and strong.

Tender and strong describes a mother. Her tenderness and support encourage us. Her strength helps us get through rough times.

I Called Mama by Tim McGraw reminds us how awesome mothers are.

Our mothers provide hugs when we need them. They help us carry heavy loads and know what to say when we need comfort.

McGraw remembers seeing his single mom trying to figure out how to pay bills late at night. Her recipe helped him win over his wife. He remembers how loving and strong she was.

Moms are a precious pearl of creation and deserving of our honor.

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.
