For the entire month of May, I want to focus on our relationships with extended family, specifically our parents, siblings, and in-laws.
What better way to start than to think about our moms? If you haven't looked at your calendar recently, Mother's Day is coming up-THIS Sunday to be exact. I want to encourage you to do something special for your mom this year. Here's why:
5 Reasons You Should Celebrate Your Mom this Mother's Day:
1. She gave you birth. Moms, you know how painful childbirth is, so this alone should be reason enough to say "thanks." And guys, you might not understand based on experience, but I'm sure you can imagine the pain involved.
2. She endured sleepless nights, clogged milk ducts, and being vomited on. All because she loved you.
3. If she was anything like my mom, she sacrificed many of her own desires and dreams so you could run after yours. She may have put a career on hold to raise you. She may have given up college or another dream. She most certainly gave up a lot of cash.
4. She loves you, no matter what. The drama of your teen years didn't stop her. Neither will a divorce or mistake or anything else your future might hold.
5. If you're a good person, she most likely had a huge hand in that. For better or for worse, our parents play a large role in making us into the people we become. Any good quality we possess is a direct result of our parents and the Lord.
If you were blessed to have a good mother, she deserves your thanks. Not everyone is so lucky.
Thanks, Mom. I hope I'm as good of a mom to my boys as you have been to us:)
