Being Greatful on Mother's Day

Updated on May 17, 2012

Although everyday is mother’s day for me, I wanted to take out the time to encourage those out there they may not have had a great experience with their mom or all the mom’s that may feel alone today for whatever reason. Now this hub is for ANYBODY who has a mother. When I woke up today I heard God tell me to be grateful on Mother’s day. You know sometimes we know just know that we have every reason to complain or even be depressed but we can choose what emotions that we follow. We can decide what our mood is going to be. Choose to be grateful on mother’s day.

Here is what I mean by that or rather what God laid on my spirit. Yes some of you may not have had the best relationship with your mother but she is still your mother and we know that God would never put more on us than we can be bear. So we know that if He did it, it was for a reason. No matter the situation, you have learned something from your mother, it could have even how not to be, or it could have been learning how to be independent, learning how to have peace even when you are struggling, learning how to be a single mom, whatever it is you’ve learned something.

Maybe you had a great relationship with your mother but your mother is not here on earth with you today but guess what? She is here on Heaven. Being on Heaven is the best place to be because there is no sorrow only peace and now she is your angel. You can still talk to her anytime, yes the thought of not being able to physically talk to her or hold her may hurt but that’s when you start to pray and let it all out. It’s okay to cry and let it all. You can still tell your mom how much you love her and miss her. She is still here (spiritually). We must focus on the positive; remember all the good things that she did when she was here. Do something in in her memory. Think of something that she always wanted to do and she didn’t do, how could you make that happen for her? There are still many ways to honor your mother.

Maybe you have a wife that is the mother of your children maybe you all are not doing so well right now or maybe she is no longer here. Again, the same thing applies, if your wife is still here embrace her today. Pray for her, take an hour or so out your day and just get into the presence of God. It may not feel like things are working but nothing happens over night. If your wife is no longer here, continue to talk to her in prayer, embrace her in prayer. Allow the beautiful memories of her to empower you and strengthen you so that when people see you smiling you can say, I am remembering my beautiful wife and that may inspire someone else.

Maybe you are a mother and your children are no longer here or you and your children do not have the greatest relationship. If your children are still here that means that there is still time to mend it. Now does that mean that it will? Well not necessarily but it definitely worth a try because we do know that ALL things are possible with God, if you believe you. Prayer changes things; I am a firm believer for of that. If your children or child is no longer with you, remember good things about them, remember how good they made you feel, talk to them through prayer. Do something in their honor, host an annual dinner on their birthday, have a family gather, make a website, coordinate a walk in their memory or start foundation. I remember one day I heard a Rueben Studdard song called “Celebrate me home”, it was a very touching song and even made me cry but that’s what we should do celebrate the ones that are no longer here, remember positive things about them knowing that they are resting in peace.

I pray that I have encouraged someone today and in someone. I pray that everyone who comes across this is touched in someway and that you all have peace that surpasses understanding. I pray that God continues to feel you all with love and strengthens you all when you all are weak. I pray that he helps you all birth your pain into your purpose (because it is true that your pain is your purpose). God bless you all and a very Happy Mother’s Day to those who are Mother’s.

      Mothers Day in England was a while ago before my Mother and I bridged a big divided.
