Remembering the Sacrifice Mothers Make All Year Long

mother's hug

This last Sunday, we celebrated the mother’s in our lives and they so deserve our honor. They do so much for us each and every day of our lives. Whether it be bandaging a scrapped knee, or mending a broken heart, mothers are always right there beside us every step of the way through our lives and you are never too old to need your mother. When the worries of the world beat us down, there’s no better place to be than your mother’s arms.

Mother’s are tough when they need to be, and gentle when we’re hurting. They impart words of wisdom whether we want to hear them or not. And those precious gems come to mind when we need them the most.

My mother has been gone for almost six years now, yet not a day goes by that I don’t think about something she told me, or did for me growing up. A mother’s lessons last a lifetime.

There are other women in our lives that help to shape who we are as well. They are the aunts, the step-moms, and the mothers-in-laws who play important parts in our lives and love us no matter what.

Mother’s Day is a great day to tell your mother how much she means to you, but showing our appreciation shouldn’t be limited to just one day. So, if you’re lucky enough to have your mother or those other special women in your life still, don’t forget to tell them how much they mean to you every chance you get.

All the best…
