A Mother’s day with a difference

I lost my mom when I was just 4 years old. Today, I do not remember how she look like, but I ma sure, to me she must have been the loveliest of all mother. I have no doubt that, like any mother she must have loved me and cared for me during my first four years of my life. Surely, she must have thought of me when she was dying.
Mother’s day is always a difficult time for me and also for my friends who have lost their mothers. Nevertheless, I express my love to my mother through prayers and assured her that, as long as I live I would be grateful to her for the life she gave me out of her life. How, I wish my mom was alive today. I would not forget to present her a special gift that would make her happy and proud, always by reassuring of my love and obedience to her.
Even though you are not with me when the whole world celebrates Mother’s Day, I thank you so much for everything you have done for me when you were alive. May you always live in peace forever. Dear mom, please know that you are the most special person in my life.
Friends, do you want to know the secret that will make your parents happy? Your love, obedience and sincerity can make them really happy, they are far better than the gift you present on Mother’s Day. You are truly fortunate to have your mother around you, say “I love you mom always,” make her happy, understand her difficulties, put every effort to lessen her burden and don’t forget to let her take rest and you do her job so you will not regret when your mom is no more.
Remember what the Bible says in Ephesians 6:1-3; “Children obey your parents in the Lord for this is right. Honor your father and mother which is the first commandment with a promise. That it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” To obey our parents is a command, we have no choice. God also promises us along with this command that, if we obey our parents He will bless us. We are to honor them, and then we will enjoy long life. Make this Mother’s Day significant by your commitment to obey and honor your parents and God will bless you and give you long life to enjoy.
