Mother’s Day hasn’t been the same since my mama moved many miles away years ago. I have to admit, I have a zing of envy when I see status updates and photos of those who get to celebrate Mother’s Day with their mother. The lucky ones who get to hug their Mom, touch her, look her in the eye, and treasure her in person.
If that’s you, don’t let that day go by like any other. Don’t take it for granted. Admire the hands that have worked for you, wiped your tears, rubbed your back, touched lives, and been there over the years.
While I won’t get to see my mom’s face when her gift arrives in the mail (oh, how I wish I could!), I will relish the voice on the other end of the phone. Or perhaps, get on Skype so I can see her smile. Even though she’s far away, I know I have a gift in still having a mama to talk to and I won’t let that slip by unnoticed.
“Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— 3 “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth. ”
What does Mother’s Day mean to you? Is it a fun time or a hard time? Do you have a special Mother’s Day tradition? Please share in the comments!
