To all my friends and family who are without their mothers, I feel you. This time of year makes many of us reflect on our mothers, the missed events and missed happy moments. I am normally very sad when I realize that my mom never got to meet Devion, Nyla or Zoey, she would have loved them. I think about the missed moments when she was alive and I was busy or mad or distracted. I say this to say, enjoy your mother while you have her, don’t sweat the small things, don’t try to change them because they don’t fit your vision of what your mother Should Be! Enjoy your Mother, find a way to forgive her for whatever happened in the past. You already survived your childhood and it didn’t kill you but made you stronger. We blame our Mothers for so many of our issues and really you did not come with instructions, there is no video on YouTube or anything on Pinterest. We all could tell many stories about where our mother and/or father did not meet our expectations but let’s use that knowledge to be better parents and not to hold a grudge. Ok I’m done…

Listen to your father. Without him, you would never have been born. Respect your mother, even when she is old. Truth, wisdom, learning, and understanding are worth paying money for. They are worth far too much to ever sell. The father of a good person is very happy. A wise child brings him joy. Make both of your parents happy. Give your mother that same joy. (Proverbs 23:22-25 ERV)
