Happy Mother's Day!!

Tomorrow is a day where we think about our lives as mothers and celebrate the mothers in our lives. I know everyone has those women in their lives that are like mothers to them, then we have Step Mothers, Mother in laws, and Grandmothers. All types of women are celebrated today and all of these women have profound effects on our lives. Nonetheless, It's an important day to focus on your family.
I will spend the day with my family, and stopping in to see the other mothers in our family. I am going to try to RELAX so I can focus on how I can be a better mother for the years to come. I do not want Mother's Day to be about catering to me (although I do want some alone time:)
 I want it to be a day where I think about the children that made me a mother, and how I can give them all they need emotionally, spiritually and physically to be the best they can be. I was listening to the radio last week and I heard (through the sounds of children screaming and playing) someone talking about how we should focus our thoughts on Mother's Day. they were saying that Mother's day is not about ourselves and our selfish desires to want everyone to cater to us. We should take the day to ask ourselves some really important questions like "What kind of relationship do you want with your children?" and "Are you keeping a close relationship with Christ so that will overflow into the lives of your children?" It is encouraging to me to know that God has a great plan for me as a Mother. He made me a mother for a reason, and he wants us to have healthy relationships with our mothers. I hopeyou have a wonderful Mother's Day thinking about the children that call you Mother!
