This Mothers Day message was shared with me last year by someone dear to my heart!
A lot has changed for all of us during the pandemic. With all of these drastic changes, perhaps a re-boot on how we look at things and approach life is in order? After all, isn’t that one of the benefits of going through adversity in life? Re-evaluate your own life and make the necessary changes to make it better.
One of the milestones for me during the pandemic was Mother’s Day. My husband worked really hard to make the day special for me, from taking me to my favorite plant store to cooking a delicious lobster dinner. He even commented that the whole weekend was devoted to Mother’s Day and not just Sunday. When Sunday night came, I remember feeling a little sad that my special day was over. Now I have to wait an entire year to feel this special again! Then I thought to myself, wouldn’t marriages be better if we could treat our spouse like each day was Mother or Father’s Day? I’m not suggesting we have lobster dinners each night or carte blanche at our favorite store, but maybe just one or two acts of kindness each day? Can you imagine the difference it would make? How would households and relationships be better? For my own, I can imagine more peace in the home, and a sort of pay if forward to others. A kind act begets more kind acts, right? It would be such an important lesson for my children on how to treat each other, too.
God’s Word- Ephesians 4:32, ESV: “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
