I have been fortunate to have many mothers in my life. My grandmother was very influential in my life as a child and made me the woman I am today. She loved me with a deep love.
She was also a big supporter in my battles with mental health or mental illness. About nine years ago I prayed for spiritual mothers. I have had many of them since that time. This included church mothers, godmothers, and friends.
A mother is someone who takes pride in ensuring the needs of others are met. God-fearing mothers put others’ needs before their own needs. My mother taught me how to pray and always told me to put God first. My spiritual mothers encouraged me to live a life that honors God in every way.
Mother’s Day reminds me of all the women that help me to grow and mature into the woman I am today. I learned that life is hard, but you can overcome anything with God.
I was taught that my relationship with God will carry me over the course of my life. During the storms I faced in my life my mother, grandmother, and spiritual mothers have been there for me every step of the way.
Mother’s Day is a day to honor the women in our lives that have held us up and made our lives better and helped us grow.
Mothers change the world every day. We become a part of this world through our mother’s womb. Mothers are the vessels to carry life in this world.
I want to wish all the mother’s in my life and all the mothers in the world a Happy Mother’s Day.
