To be a mother…what a wonderful gift we’ve all been given; there are some things that only a mother can give.
“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Proverbs 31:29
To Be A Mother
To be a mother is an awesome responsibility.
She carries the welfare of her children on her shoulders;
but there is no other weight she welcomes more to bear.
To be a mother requires a perception only she can display.
She knows what her children need before they are even aware;
she makes a way for them that will keep them safe from harm.
To be a mother is a role that is born out of an insatiable love.
She loves her husband and her children in distinct ways;
to experience a mother’s love is a gift that never ceases to give.
To be a mother is a privilege that she never takes for granted.
She does whatever it takes to nurture her family; meeting their needs,
experiencing the joy of seeing them succeed in life is her welcome reward.
To be a mother takes the ability to love others unconditionally.
She is human and possesses all of the frailties that come along with that;
yet somehow she goes far beyond what is expected of her – she is a living inspiration to all.
