"Her children rise up and bless her . . ." Proverbs 31:28
Is there anything more important than being a Mother?
Is there anything more challenging, more rewarding?
From conception - to birth - to the growing-up years, there is nothing in my life that has stretched and blessed me more than being a Mom. I love my sons, their wives and families more than life itself, and I hope they know that they most certainly "bless" me!
Mother's Day is always an emotional time for me.
Mother's Day brings up so many memories and puts me in a nostaligic frame of mind.
This day also brings up the heart-wrenching reality that there are many women who despartely long for a child, but cannot conceive, and in contrast that more than 60+ million babies have been aborted in this Country, since the 1970's.
This day reminds me of the multitude of women who have suffered the loss of a child and who will experience a measure of sadness, especially if they are alone and have no one to spend the day with this year.
As a mom who has enjoyed the joy of conception, birth and the raising of children, I consider myself to be blessed indeed.
As a mom who has suffered the loss of a child, I still consider myself blessed, and I thank God, and say without reservation, I "would do it all again!" And, I wonder . . . would you?
If you have something you would like to share with other moms on this Mother's Day, please post your comments to this blogpage. Many moms read these blogs and I have heard from these "moms like us" that hearing from other moms is a special source of comfort, hope and encouragement.
I am thinking of and praying for all the moms I know who deserve a love-filled Mother's Day!
With Faith, Hope and Love,
Angie "a mom like you"
