“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting-a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
I want to wish all of my readers a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. For those of us who are mothers, we have so much to be thankful for!
An older friend, who I greatly admire, gave me a beautiful card and a small, simple candle yesterday.
When to encourage
and when to protect,
When to ignore things
and when to correct,
When to hold closer
and when to let go –
There aren’t any rules for that …
mothers just know.
This day was made to honor mothers like you.
A little gift and a card.
I love friends who honor others by telling them that “they are a good mom.”
I know if my mom were here, I’d hear those words, as would others.
This weekend, I challenge you to tell at least 3 younger moms that you are proud of them, and that they are a good mom. Or tell them the qualities that you believe make them so beautiful.
Who encouraged your mother when you were growing up? Who encourages you, if you’re a mother now yourself?
