Of course, there is no such thing as a perfect mom. Funny though, searching through all my memories, I can't seem to find a single one to remind me that she had flaws. Perhaps that's because her love for me was so great it covered the few small ones she had. I can only hope that, someday, when I'm gone, my kids will look back on our times together and see me through the same rose-colored glasses (although my flaws are a heck of a lot bigger). Because in the end, as the Bible says, the greatest gift God gives us is love. It does cover a multitude of sins. And a mom's love? Wow, does it overlook a lot.
Motherhood is a two-way blessing, isn't it? Those of us who have a good mom receive a foundation for a well-balanced live and the encouragement to reach for our dreams. Those of us who are a mom get the opportunity to help our children grow to their full potential. Momhood is a wondeful thing!
So to all of you celebrating today, happy Mother's Day. To those of us who are remembering, happy Mother's Day. Thank God for Moms!
