This article made me remember the love my Mother shared with everyone she knew,
especially her children. She passed away when she was only 56 years old, but
left a legacy of 7 living children, and a posterity of over 300 at this time.
Her Love for each of us, and for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, still brings tears
to my eyes. If only I could be like my Mom.
Wonderful article -- motherhood never ends. There is no retirement plan, only
the plan of salvation. I can also say that my life has not only
been blessed and influence by my mother, my grandmothers and my wife. But I
have also been the recipient of influence from other women who may or not have
been mothers in their own right, but they were motherly and I shall ever be
grateful for the efforts they made to teach and to influence me and my life.
That is a good article made me miss my mom. She passed away 11 years ago at a
young age of 63 from a stroke. I miss her more now then ever. I think i miss her
more because my own kids did not get to have her in their life. She never missed
one of my games in high school all the way through college.Now with my son
playing college baseball i always tell him if your grandma was a live she would
not miss one of your games. Love and miss you mom.
In addition to remembering the blessing of all mothers out there, there are also
the moms (and grandmoms) that have had to bring the courage and strength of two
people to the table as they've had to raise kids alone, for whatever
reasons. It's a good time to remember their selfless giving.
This article made me want to take more time connecting with my grown kids and
their kids as I do worry life will be to short and I don't want to waste it
taking care of things that are less important like house n yard work. I have 17
grandkids plus a few more I claim in love through our years doing foster care.
Guess it is time to sell the old family home and downsize to an RV so we can go
be with them enough to make a difference for good in their lives. In the
meantime I think I'll start writing personal letters to each of them , even
the ones who can't read yet. :)
