I Can’t Celebrate Mother’s Day

It is the season to celebrate, wow and excite moms for a day.  We buy gifts, send cards and make phone calls to show our love but I can’t celebrate Mother’s Day  like a 1 Day Sale at Macy’s.  You see, moms deserve more than one day on a calendar, they deserve to be celebrated everyday.  They deserve to be honored. We’re blessed to have mothers past and present who’ve shown their love everyday in so many different ways. I don’t think I can schedule express love for mom in just one day. I need to just do it everyday.  I will honor my mother just like the Bible says to do.  My mom always said to me,” Mother’s day is everyday.” That means when I run an errand for her, help her or the grandkids out with a project, remind and take her to a doctor’s appointment, put gas in her car, call or text her, (even though she doesn’t always  text me back), it’s Mother’s Day.  It’s also when I cook dinner, take her shopping, get the bags out of her car,  pull the car around for her when she is tired of walking, help her stay organized with bills, clean up the house, decorate for a family gathering, laugh and cry with her, or do whatever she asks me to, it’s Mother’s Day. So I will continue to honor my mom daily and let God wow and excite her beyond what I can do in His own chocolate-dipped, freshly crafted kind of way.

Exodus 20:12 (ESV) says “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

    Now that’s a different way of looking at Mother’s Day for sure. You reminded us how to love like Jesus.
