Remembering Our Moms
I was searching for a topic for May’s blog and was not coming up with anything. All of a sudden, I realized that Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Wouldn’t this be an appropriate time to remember your Mom?
So I ask you: “What is it that you remember most about your mom?” Think about it for a few minutes. Was it her selfless love, her sense of humor, her words of wisdom, her laughter, and even sometimes her discipline? There are probably so many more memories you can add to this list.
Those of us who no longer have our moms with us can feel some emptiness as moms all around us will be honored this Sunday. What will you decide to do this Sunday? Take a moment, look at a picture of your mom and remember the memories you cherish most about your mom. Here is a poem to help you.
First heart to ever love me
First voice I ever heard
Its soothing music sweet
Before I understood a word.
First face I learned to recognize
First smile I ever saw
Eyes looking into mine
With love and pride and awe
First hands to guide my wobbly steps
Or swing me to and fro
First arms to hold me safe and snug
Yet leave me room to grow.
First confidante to listen
To the things I had to say
First friend to know my hopes and dreams
First in my heart today.
