Today's Mother

Just what does a mother do all day?

  • They work their fingers to the bone.
  • They push their nerves to the brink.
  • They use every skill they have just to survive the day.

    Little things matter to our kids.
    They are the things that meet special needs that say, I love you.
    But when a mother's time becomes crowded by competing demands, there is no time
    for these little things
    These little things really make a difference.

    Here is a list of what mothers may have to do in a single day:
    Are you tired, yet?

    And what else does a mother do?

    Well, among many other things, she does these: I don't know about you, but I'm exhausted.
    Think about this – there are working moms who do all these things.
    And I imagine that there are mothers here who can add to that list.
    And remember, we didn't add all that she does for her husband, parents, grandparents, and friends.

    Proverbs 31: 10, 27-28 says, "Who can find a virtuous woman?
    For her price is far above rubies... She looketh well to the ways of her household,
    And eateth not the bread of idleness.
    Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
    her husband also. And he praiseth her
    ."

    What does a mother do all day?
    All these things and so much more.
    The vocation of mothering is "a real job," and it takes a lot of love and dedication.
    So, we honor our mothers.
  • We must pray daily for our mothers.
  • We must do all that we can to lift their load.
    Thank God for our mothers.
