When it comes to Mother’s Day, either there are not enough words or there are too many words. For example, I cannot say enough about my Mom and my Mother-in-law, but the cards you buy in the store never ever get it just right no matter how many words they use. – Perhaps the best I could ever say to my Mom and my Mother-in-law or hear from my children is just a simple, “I love you, Mom!”
I spent today with wonderful Daughters #1 & #2. They are both mothers and, because of that common experience, we have so much we can share. I’m so proud of the mothers they have become. There is no greater joy.
Daughter-in-law #1, a truly wonderful match for Son #1, is also a great joy in my life. Today, we spent over half an hour on the phone talking about children, and cats, and gardening, and all the great loves of our life. She too is a terrific mom.
Finally, in this beautiful month of May, it is a time to remember our Lord’s Blessed Mother. By His words, she became a mother to us all.
I love you Mom! Happy Mother’s Day!
