A Mother Who Made It Special

June 02, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 141

Mothers have a special place. Who can say enough about their mother? We each have our own special, world's best mother.

My mother always put us, her kids, before herself. I remember one time my class at school was having a special occasion and classmates were taking treats to share with the whole class. I went to bed the night before, thinking I wasn't going to have a treat to take. My mother knew I was wanting to take something but it was last minute and she was worn out and I didn't have any ideas. I woke the morning of to find the table loaded with chocolate cookie monster cupcakes that she had craftily styled with blue icing and bits of chip ahoy cookies that she had laboriously spent most of the night preparing.

My brother still talks about the time he wanted Indian pants for a school report he was giving in school. Mother stayed up another night and, with the thrift she always had, somehow sewed something together with fringes down the side. She had eight kids and we each had our own desires and passions. However did she keep up with us to make us feel special? Was it critical or necessary to go above and beyond? No. But that's what makes her who she is. She made sacrifices for even the little things that meant something to us. She also taught me a great many things by the way she helped others outside our family. Countless times, she would be on the phone talking to someone else in need, preparing extra food for dinner for someone else in unfortunate times- even when we did not have much ourselves, and staying late after activities to help the wearied hosts clean up. That is the woman she is. I could stay up all night myself adding to these stories and the lessons learned.

Although Mother's Day isn't and shouldn't be the only day we express our love to our mothers, it does bring about occasion to send extra heartfelt gratitude and appreciation, and finding even simple yet meaningful ways to do it.

How about those new and soon-to-be mothers out there? Congratulations! Motherhood is a special calling entrusted to you from a loving Heavenly Father. Amidst the joy, as well as perhaps the overwhelming feeling of a daunting task that lies ahead, comes a new and beautiful journey.

Happy Mother's Day.
