May is the time of year when we celebrate Mother’s Day. Ephesians 6:2 reminds us that we are to “Honor your father and mother.” It is always right to honor your mother. This year, we invited members of our congregation to share with us the secrets of being a great mother. Today’s post comes from RaQuel Love, a 17-year old member of our congregation.
What Makes My Mom So Great?
This question can be asked to many people and the answer will never be the same. I wanted to know what other people thought of their moms, so I went and asked. “My mom is someone who is always there for me, someone very special to me.” Another lady said, “ My mom gives me advice, and will never judge me.” Then I started to think about my mom. What all she has done for me in the 17 years I’ve been alive? There is so much to say, so, I better get started 🙂
She is Loving
My mom loves and she has always gone out of her way for me. There are 4 of us kids, so when it comes down to it, there’s not much left over at the end of the month. She always finds a way to get us where we need to go, or get us what we need. She loves all the friends we bring over, and I mean a lot of friends! She is always the life of the party, and I don’t mind! My friends love coming over and hanging with my mom because she is so cool and loving. She can make a dinner made for 6 into a dinner for 12 in no time at all. Her motto will always be, “ If you want to see me, all are welcome. If you want to see the house, make an appointment.”
She is an Encourager
My mom is an encourager and a hard worker. Our family has gone through a lot through the years and my mom has always been there to comfort me, encourage me and love me. I can’t think of a time when my mom wasn’t there to help me with my algebra, or help me figure out my future. My mom has always been an encourager to my family and other families as well. My mom has also gone back to college to further her own education and has also found time to coach my brother’s baseball team. I don’t know how she manages to find time for everything!
She Loves God
My mom lives for the Lord in everything she does. My mom loves God with all her heart and it shows everyday. She teaches us God’s Word every night in our family devotions and has always told us to be a testimony. Every time we walk out of the house she always tells us to be a blessing. She is such an inspiration to me because when I am down about something she is always there for me and always has a Bible verse to help me up.
There is so much more I could write about, but there is not enough paper in the world to describe my mommy to you! So, what makes my mom so great? Is it everything she does for me? Is it her uplifting and joy-filled spirit? Yes! It is all this and a whole lot more! She is the love of my life and my whole world! I LOVE YOU MOMMY!
