I Rather Like Mothers' Day

Even before I was a mother, I liked Mothers' Day. Here is a day set aside specifically to tell my mom I love her, in case I forgot. Even if I didn't have a wonderful mom to thank that day, I get a chance to reflect on all the silent hours of work that good moms put into raising our next wave of citizens. And I even get to wonder about my Heavenly Mother and look forward to learning (or remembering) more about her in this life or next.

Sure, there are cheesy talks and sappy sentiments. Sure, there is a lot of pain wrapped up in being, not being, having, or not having a mom. But for those moms who DO love their kids, who put someone else's welfare above their own, who clean up the messes of the world because somebody's got to:



  1. Thank you for this. And as a mom who knows that parenting is hard, I'd like to give you a pat on the back for all that you do.

  2. I am single with no children. I love mothers day! I still have my mom and also honor my sister-in-law, cousins, and friends who are moms.

  3. I have been thinking about this, too. Gonna write about it, I think.
