As we celebrate Mother's day today, I just want to share one story I have read on Spiritual Gleanings at church. Here's the story:
On Mother's Day 2001, British National Television ran an intriguing story. Peggy Bush's daughter had died, so Peggy absorbed the responsibility of caring for her daughter's three children while her son-in-law worked. Then, tragically, her son-in-law also died. With both parents gone, Peggy took her three grandchildren in and raised them as if they were her own.
In a world where wrong is glamorized and the lurid is presented as appealing, we seldom hear of the good things that happen. Yet this woman's love and sacrifice were recognized, acknowledged and honored as the nation took note of her as Britain's "Best Mom" for 2007.
Today is Mother's Day. Most of the efforts, sacrifices, and expressions of love our mothers have given us will not be the lead story on the news. Their recognition will be more personal. But what matters is not the scope of the appreciation but its genuineness.
On this special day, may we thank God for the mothers who have molded our hearts. As we honor them, we fulfill the truth of Proverbs 31:28, "Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her."
You are blessed if you still have your Mom beside you as you celebrate Mother's day. Show her how much you love her. It's really hard when you have lost your Mom. I thank God so much for the life of our Mom, she's the best mother for us. We missed her so much but we know she's happy with our Father in Heaven. As we remember her, I want to share this video presentation.
Nothing touches a child like a Mother's Love!
