Mother's Day Message

Here's a Mother's Day message that a friend sent. Click the page each time you are done reading and the next page will open. In case I don't get online tomorrow, may all the mothers out there and Aunts, Sisters, Grandmothers, teachers, step-moms, and women who have stood in for mothers, loved children, served them and cared for children, be blessed and honored for the mothers they have been to children. For all the runny noses, sleepless nights, dirty diapers, colick, fevers, doctor's visits, teachers visits, field trips, prayerful nights, times of anguish, times of wonder, science homework projects, crumb ridden kitchens, repeated instructions, taxi-ing back and forth, tears cried and uproarious laughter, dreams dreamt and hopes failing, sending off to camp, first day of school, worries of failure on your own part or on your children's part, first day of driving on their own, first day of college, wedding days, graduation, vacation memories, wishes made, tooth fairy and santa claus appearing and then dimming, nursery rhymes read, favorite picture books, multitudes of laundry loads, boxes of bandaids, trips to the ER, friendship issues, time outs and corrections, worn stuffed animals, first lost tooth, first hair cut, questions unlimited,
may these times fill your heart with love and hope and the knowledge that you have been blessed above all you can imagine and a blessing to those children you have cared for, even though it is never done perfectly or to the extent that you'd like it to be, but it's the loving offering you've given and you have changed those lives forever, and molded them into strong hopeful confident people, by your time, care, prayers, tears, service and unseen effort.
Happy Mother's Day to you all!
