I remember my Mom explaining to me how much I would love my kids; how much she loves my sisters and I. That you would do ANYTHING for them. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I thought. Obviously you love your kids. But then something happened. I became the Mom. Ooooh, that’s what she was talking about! THAT love.
The love that makes you understand how Jesus can love us sinners. The love that is all-consuming and surpasses circumstances. The love you never realized your Mom had for you until you experienced yourself. Oh yes THAT love.
I’m grateful today that I have a Mom that loves me like that. That I am able to love Jack because of the love that was shown to me.
Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you know you are loved.
I totally know what you mean. I became a Mom just 6 weeks ago and I’ve totally never been in love like this before. And it really makes me emotional to think this is how my mother loves me and how she took care of me, and how she still does take care of me (especially after coming out of a c-section!), and also to think of how God loves us even more than this.
I’m not a Mom, but I cannot wait for that day to come. I work as a nanny, and sometimes I think, if I can love these kids that aren’t my own this much…..just wait until I have my own kids! Hope your Mother’s Day was wonderful:)
