I’ve been up since 2 AM, which isn’t uncommon for a mom. We’re accustomed to being awakened at all hours of the night from the time the first signs of life begin to stir in our wombs. I think I woke up out of excitement that all of my girls, ages 29, 28, 26 and my two grand babies ages 5 and 2 are all here with me this Mother’s Day! I generally see all of them on Mother’s Day. But on THIS Mother’s Day I woke up with my house filled will ALL of my babies, ALL five of my “Heartbeats.” Although it is wonderful to have a date on the calendar set aside to honor our Mothers (Fathers too), a Mother’s Day never ends. It begins at the moment of conception and continues into Eternity.
For Today, as a former teen Mom, having all three of my Earth deposits from Heaven’s Treasury by age 21, I’m going to continue to strive to live my life in such a way that it may be said of me: “Her children arise and call her blessed…(Proverbs 31:28 NIV).” (The quote in the Headline photo is absolute TRUTH; at least it is when it comes to my mama!) Happy Mother’s Day, Ladies!
