Nothing stands between a girl and her shoes. Unless it’s her children. Mothers around the world are being celebrated this month for their unselfish love, their sacrifices, their memory making with their little ones, their unmatched example. On this day 37 years ago, a mom had made dresses for her daughter’s wedding party including her daughter’s bridal gown. The mom was thrilled to ensure the grandeur of the ceremony by setting the tone in luxurious, custom gowns. She’d worked so thoroughly on those dresses. They were detailed and totally what her little girl had dreamt of. As she reflects on pictures from that unforgettable occasion, she’s reminded of her love and care she expressed then and continues to display. The mom dressed elegantly in a mauve dress adorned with coordinating accessories and mistakingly had forgotten to purchase her cream shoes. What is a mom to do! A woman adores her shoes. She stands tall and walks confidently in a stunning and comfortable pair of shoes. Rather than fret, this mom wore a navy pair of shoes to coordinate with her attire that screamed, “I’m the mother of the bride.” Can you imagine 37 years later, reminiscing through pictures and those shoes serve as a reminder of an act of kindness shown to the one who means the world to you!! Yes indeed, that symbol of love will forever be etched in her heart.
Sacrificial and unconditional is what I think of when I think of mothers. A mother’s love begins the moment she learns of her child in utero. A mother’s care remains no matter the maturity of her child. This mother’s selfless actions are an amazing example of how, no matter how old your child becomes you will always want what is best for your child. This month join me in celebrating moms everywhere.
Below are some memorable ways to celebrate mom: 1. Shopping spree 2. Upscale dinner 3. Spa day 4. Floral delivery 5. Netflix and chill 6. Attend church with her 6. Manicure and pedicure 7. Memorable custom jewelry 8. Photo shoot 9. Housekeeping service 10. Detail car 11. Take flowers to her gravesite (so much love to you)
The memories made cannot be stolen. Moms, as you are raising your children, you are their example of how love should be given. You are their example of how grace should be extended. Reflect on parenting moments that are special. No matter how old, no matter how tall, being a mother to your children remains always. You are the reason your children are as resilient as they are. You are the reason your children are as determined as they are. God has gifted you with unique treasures. Continue to handle the present with dignity and care. There’s no greater love, other than God’s love, than a mother’s love! What a good thing God performed when He created women with the ability to develop a craft in the image of Him! So much love to you.
