Let's Hear It For Moms!

There is nothing stronger than a child's bond with his or her mom.  Your mom was your first home.  She sheltered you right under her heart.  Her voice and scent are embedded in your memory.  Moms are our first love.  They probably were the first person we smiled at, the first one to make us laugh.  The first one to soothe our cries.  Our connections to our moms are long and deep.

Moms rock our world.  We want to please them.  We want them to be proud of us.

Moms help with homework, teach us to dress and care for ourselves, model how to behave and treat others.

Moms encourage us, believe in us and share our dreams.  Moms play with us and teach us how to be graceful losers and kind winners.

Moms let us know what is right and wrong.  Moms make us use our words and apologize when we should.  Moms know when we are telling the truth. 

Moms do the best they can with what they know.  As Oprah says, "When you know better, you do better."  All moms deserve respect because there is no tougher job on earth.

Be grateful to your mom everyday, not just on Mother's Day!  If you are a mom be aware of how important a job you are doing.  You love with all your heart, you make tough decisions, you teach your child to be responsible, resourceful and resilient.  You do this 24/7 for your child's entire life.  Don't give up!  Being a mom is a gift to the world.  Your children are, and always will be, your masterpiece.

    ...God bless our mothers who can love them and set them free.
