God knitted every one of us in our mother’s womb creating a love connection that transcends struggles, time, and distance.
“Her children rise up and call her blessed.” - Proverbs 31:28
I remember getting up at night, coming to my mom’s arms and sobbing like a baby. Not as a kid, but as the grown up adult that I am, feeling hurt from a recent heartbreak.
There’s just something so comforting and safe about a mom’s embrace. A love so pure and sweet, it makes every pain hurt a little less and every struggle weigh a little less. I don’t know how, but they make it all better, even when we are not always easy to love.
As we grow up we become impatient, disobedient, or we forget to call. But they keep loving us, they keep praying for us and they keep believing the best for us.
No matter how your relationship with your mom is, or what season of life you are in, I want to encourage you today to honor that wonderful woman that you have the blessing to call “mom”.
You can do this in a lot of different ways, but may I suggest you start with a letter? And if you don’t know what to say, don’t worry. You can borrow mine.
Letter to my mom
If I had to think of the person who loves me more than anyone on this earth, it would be you. You always see the best in me even when I can’t see it for myself, and always love me despite my decisions or my mistakes.
You have such an unfading inner beauty, and a gentle and quiet spirit. You inspire me every day to be better, to be kinder, more noble and caring; all because of how you are with me.
God blessed me when he knitted me together in your womb and I thank Him every day for making you my mother. I would not be who I am today without the selfless love you have given me all of my life.
Thank you for raising me to have Jesus in my heart and encouraging me to live a life devoted to Him. Thank you for believing in me when I couldn’t believe in myself, for supporting my dreams and never letting me give up.
Thank you for speaking words of life and victory when all I can feel is fear and worry in my heart. Thank you for being the wonderful mom that you are.
Whenever I feel lost, I know I can look to your wisdom and courage to keep my head up and my faith strong. You are a blessing to me and a guiding light in my life.
From the pillow forts to the scabbed knees, from the laughs and jokes and all the tears. You’ve been there for all that, and everything in between.
I love you tremendously. More than you could ever know.
And I am sorry for not telling you this enough.
