Thankful Thursday Mothers Day edition

1 Corinthians 13:4-8a

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

This mothers day I would love to recognize all the things that my mom did for me. My mother is a special type of person who does for everyone. I have rebelled against her and she has still loved me. I remember in my teen years that I would fight allot with my mother. She would always wait for me to calm down so that we could talk it over. I look back and think of the loved that she showed me when I was such a bratty teenager. Always patient always waiting for me to calm down. Yes I did get into trouble but yes she did forgive me and discuss what was going on.

I can not say that my mother did not tell her friends about all that I did. She was proud of me as I am proud of my children. I thank my mother for all that she offered me. She never once took the spotlight with my friends. My mother monitored but never over took. She gave her time in so many areas at church, school, scouts you name it she did it and never gave it a second thought. I am so thankful that she was a mother like that.

All though I have did many things in my life time such as teen parenting, trouble with school etc... my mother never holds these faults against me. I am so thankful for a parent who always forgives me. Most of all I am thankful that my mother took me to church and continued taking me to church way beyond the point of early childhood, teen years, marriage life. She taught me what a mother was to do and now I can share that love with my children.
