How many friends or family members can you say don't require you to earn or deserve their love? I can think of one: my mother.
All love on this earth begins and ends with motherhood. She doesn't judge me for my faults. She doesn't ridicule my failures. She is simply there any time I need her.
She doesn't place conditions on loyalty. She's a teacher, a mentor, a cheerleader, a motivator, a counselor, and a friend. Simply put, there is nothing else like a mother.
Mothers know their children better than they know themselves, and likewise, we should know what is important to our mothers.
I would invite you to join me this week in pausing our busy schedules before Sunday, and really put some thought into how we can honor our mothers in a unique way this year - something that is special only to her. She deserves it.
And to my mother Denise, thank you for the never-ending, unconditional love and support, even when I didn't deserve it.
Happy Mother's Day.
