HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY.……..to the few of you who are mothers and read GeeeZ!
I’m a ‘homestay mother’ and have come to enjoy and feel nourished myself by the nourishment I give my Mexican, Chinese and, now, German student who lives with me until early June. I’d keep this one forever if I could. My Chinese boy who was here 9 months last year calls me his “California mother” still to this day. He’s been gone a year this week and living about 1 1/2 hours away, but keeps in touch.
“God, please bless our mothers……thank you for them, forgive them, bless them, let their memory linger with us in wonderful ways; One of the greatest things you invented was THE MOTHER. My two stepchildren call me “Z-Mom” and are always there for me, keep in close contact though they live in Munich or are out sailing the world! Thank you. And you send me foreign students who I’ve loved ‘mothering’. Good stuff. I thank you particularly for MY MOTHER. She is selfless, beautiful, supportive, and just about everything one can want in a mother. Keep her healthy for many years to come.”
I hope you all have good mother memories and encourage you to share some here if you’d like!
“25 Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman,here is your son,”
27 and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.” John 19: 25-27
Jesus loved his mother so much he was in physical agony and knew he must make sure she’s taken good care of.
Happy Mother’s Day!
