They are and they are not. . .

Mothers day 2      . . .Amazing Mother’s!   Mother’s Day is so very special and fun; the precious handmade, well scribed cards, the extra 30 minutes in bed waiting for breakfast to arrive, the sweet moments spent with family celebrating over a meal.  Yes, mother’s day is truly special. But what about instead of being gifted, of being served, we instead serve others?

It’s said that,  “whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, . . .just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”  Matthew 20:25-28

What if this year, we intentionally seek to serve and celebrate, not only our own mothers, but also those “mothers” who are to us the wisdom we long for, the graciousness we desire, who serve us unconditionally, at any hour, listening to our stories of heartbreak and joy, and rejoice greatly in our growth, growth they helped us to accomplish.

So this Mother’s Day, how about we join together, and celebrate those who have been placed before us as amazing surrogates, wise mentors and lifelong sojourners! Who in your life is a deserving “Mother” in need of your grateful attention?  How do you plan to serve her this Mother’s Day?
