Mary's hubs are inspired by her many hobbies and love for the Lord. She loves writing, art, photography, crafting, and being a grandmother.

God could not be everywhere - so he made Mothers!

This hub is a tribute to all the mom's out there who have experienced some of these things in her life as she raised and cared for her children. A great big salute is due you this Mother's Day - for all you have done.

To every mom who has children and has been awakened by a cry in the middle of the night for a feeding, then feel asleep as you rocked them back to sleep. Or the times when you held that precious baby in you arms for hours on end, till your arms felt like they were going to literally fall off.

Or remember watching your little one walk into kindergarten class on the first day of school, with tears running down your face, but you tried to act cool. What about the times when you spread yourself so thin driving your kids to all their sports games and activities every week, without complaining, maybe you were but only on the inside.

You did your best to encourage and love your children, and teach them the values that would help them in life to be responsible adults. One was the golden rule, treat others the way you would like to be treated and to love God our Father in Heaven and keep him first in their life. To be kind to others, respectful to their elders and teachers, wish that one was still being told to children today.

If you were a mom that didn't have to work outside the home what a blessing that was. But let's not forget to give special thanks to the mom's who did. They had to go to work, then come home to their second job, the chores, prepare meals and to crying kids wanting help with their homework. Her job is an endless one, but it was only by the grace of God and his strength she could get it all done.

Then when you think that things will settle down a bit and you will have more time, there are different worries for a mom. As they grow up and leave home, my heart goes out to those mothers who have cried themselves to sleep, worrying about her childrens whereabouts and activities, praying that they are on the right path. I have said many a prayer like this.

God has gifted each and every one of us with a mom, whether good or bad. Just know that she did the very best she could or knew how, to raise you. She loves you with a deeper love, and remember even if you do something wrong, there is never a lack of forgiveness in a mothers heart.

So take the time to call your mom if she is still alive, and wish her a beautiful day. If she is not, keep her precious memories close to your heart and never forget who she is. If you are a mom - know this, you have children who love you very much and they appreciate all that you have done.

As we reflect on how much our mom's mean to us, I want to especially thank my mom for all she has done in my life, for her prayers, her love, laughter and her care. My mom's mother (my grandmother) died when my mom was only two years old, so she didn't get to experience the love of her real mom, so every Mother's Day, it's a day of joy and sadness rolled into one.

I love you mom! Que Dios la bendiga! God Bless you!

A Mother's Love Poem

There is no love, like a mother's love, no stronger bond on earth.....

Like the precious bond that comes from God, to a mother when she gives birth.....

A mother's love is forever strong, never changing for all time....

And when her children need her most, a mother's love will shine.

God Bless these special mothers, God bless them everyone.....

For all the tears and heartache, and for the special work they have done.

When her days on earth are over, a mother's love lives on.....

With God's blessings on each one.

Be thankful for our mothers, for they love with a higher love.....

From the power God has given, and the strength from up above.

A Mothers Heart

"The heart of a Mother is a deep abyss..........

At the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness"

      i am 56 and lost my mum 15 years ago and when she was alive most often i was taking care of her rather than her being a mummy to me and YEt lately very often i wish she was here to just hold me in moments of stress and without even understanding what my problem was telling me it would be all right.

      good hub friend

      I lost my mother to ovarian cancer when I was eleven, mother's day is always hard, because even though I am the mother now, I think mother's day is really always about your own mother. A beautiful tribute to mothers everywhere. Great hub, I look forward to reading more by you!
