Fifteen {Vital} Ways a Mother is

A mother is:

1. a mother to more than her own biological children.

2. a good listener, no matter what the hour.

3. a cheerleader.

4. a facilitator.

5. a guide.

6. a cultivator of hearts and home.

7. always seeking the highest good of her family.

8. always seeking and administrating grace, truth and love.

9. willing to say, "I'm sorry."

10. on the front lines of the battle for her children's hearts and      minds. 

11. a defender of the weak.

12. daily brought to her knees.

13. willing to surrender her children to God alone.

14. willing to die to self so that her children may live.

15. Courageous.

Are we women not all mothers, bearing the responsibility, though we may not all bear children? Thank you, dear mothers, for your vital sacrifice of love and impact on the next generation and for eternity.

Happy Mother's Day!
