I bless all mothers in my prayers.
Nurturing and caring for another living being is a sacred activity. Today I take the opportunity to give thanks for all who have shared unconditional love and acceptance with me. A mother can be anyone who takes on a role of caring for a child—whether that person is a biological or adoptive parent, another relative, a teacher, or a friend. The most important aspect in being a mother is to love and care for a child unconditionally. Patience and compassion are mainstays for these expressions of love in action. Just as caring mothers hold loved ones in their arms, so, too, do I hold them in my prayers.
“Honor your father and mother”—this is the first commandment with a promise: “so that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”—Ephesians 6:2-3
