“Blessed Are the Merciful” Matthew 5:7
Mother’s Day is a day set aside to honor our mothers. Our mothers exemplify the highest in sacrificial love. All of us owe a debt of thanks and gratitude to our mothers who have nurtured and cared for us. There is no love like a mother’s love.
As the years go by the love exemplified in motherhood never departs from us. Our mothers still love us with their special brand of love as they step back and watch us grow and develop. It is as if they are watching us from a faint distance only to wave in our direction should we happen to turn back and take notice of them. Perhaps we might give them a wave back in love and gratitude. Mother’s Day is our wave back: Happy Mother’s Day.
