The woman who loves you unconditionally from birth, the one who puts her kids before herself and the one who you can always count on above everyone else.
That may be in a perfect world. It may be what most want to have or be as a Mom. It may be that your mom wasn’t the one who gave birth to you. It could possibly be the person who was there for you in one time of your life or someone who helped raise you. It may be someone who gave you love and guidance in a time you needed it most. A role model, a coach, a teacher, a friend. Motherhood is a calling. It means getting yourself out of the way sometimes. It’s selfless love!
Mom’s come in many shapes, sizes, and forms. If you can’t have children or are trying and it hasn’t happened yet it’s ok. You can still be a mommy. You can help nurture and guide someone. You can adopt or foster. There are so many people that need tender love and care. You can even mother pets and animals.
It’s very special and rewarding to mother someone. God gives you the people or children he wants you to help disciple, mold, care for, and love. It can be a big job sometimes. Sometimes we forget how important the task can be. Some people don’t appreciate the responsibility or think less of the opportunity. It’s ok if you didn’t experience that kind of nurturing or love from your birth Mom. Just remember your situation and story is for a reason. God knows what he is doing.
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them
Its all about Grace, forgiveness, and love! That’s what a mother is!
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
You don’t have to be perfect. You just have to be willing to try. Patience and forgiveness is everything. Your experiences and lessons you have learned are important. Be open to learning from other mom’s. Old and new they all have something special to share. You can read on being motherly. You can take classes or be mentored. There are so many resources. The bible is filled with really great examples.
It’s so amazing when you hear someone call you MOM. Of course unless it’s screaming or repetitious. Grandmother is even better.
It fills your heart and soul. You are wanted and loved. Take a step back today and think about all the lessons and blessings you have received from all the mom’s in your life. Think about all your mothering moments with or without children. What blessings or lessons have you learned? What traits does a loving mom have? What don’t you want to portray as a mother?
I think of a gentle, quiet, humble, loving, and caring spirit. We need more women out there to help change the world together by putting their families and others first. Disciple your children or whomever your mothering. Love them and teach them to trust. Do what you say your going to. Speak the way you want to be speaked to. Love your self and be aware of how your living your life.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
We need more women stepping up and adopting or fostering. We must stand together and offer encouragement and support from other’s mom’s. We can step in God’s word, pray, and receive encouragement and inspiration. This is a great resource.
The home is where our hearts are. We all need motherly love. Let’s make the world a better place one Mommy at a time and rock this world.
