According to wikipedia, “Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.” When I think about what it means to be a mom, the following words come to my mind – strong, loving, caring, helpful, beautiful, smart, trustworthy. I hope that I portray these characteristics on a daily basis with my children.
I will tell you that I have already received my mother’s day gift. Last night, while tucking my littlest one into bed, I was blessed with the following speech….
“Mom, I just wanted to tell you that you are the best mom in the whole entire world. Thank you for taking care of me when I am sick and snuggling me every night. Thank you for helping me with my homework, cooking me yummy dinners, and always smiling so pretty. I am so thankful for you.”
This very gesture made my day, month, year, world. Have you ever heard the saying, “being a mother is a thankless job”? I truly despise that confession. I believe that you will have what you say and I will never say that! I am Mom that is truly blessed beyond measure!

I often think about what it must have been like to be a mother on the Titanic during the sinking. How would I have acted in that moment of panic? I know my first priority would have been to latch on to my children and save their lives no matter the cost. I think I would have remained calm until I knew we were safe…then I would have gone crazy after the fact. There are many heroic stories about mothers who saved their children and got them safely onto lifeboats. I would like to take a moment to honor them and their heroism. They should never be forgotten.
