Have you ever wondered what your mum gets up to during the day? Mums have so much they do - whether they work outside your home, work at home, or are a wonderful stay-at-home mum.
Why don't you stop and take a
moment to think of all the things your mum does - much of it for her
family . . . washing, cooking, cleaning, tidying, paying the bills,
organising things for school, groceries, helping with homework or music
practice, driving you to and watching you at music lessons or sport,
being home to greet you with a smile when you get home, listening to
what you did with your day.
Reading A Day In The Life of Amelia Magazine would give my kids an insight as to what one of my days might look like.
more than that, your mum would also . . . listen to you talk about the
not-so-good parts of your day, encourage you when your courage fails,
snuggle with you, hold you when you cry, mend your injuries, feel your
pain when you are sad and hurting, pray for you, think of what she can
do to make your life nicer, happier, more peaceful . . . the list could
God gave us mums because He knows just what we need. He
thought they are so important, He made sure His son, Jesus, had a loving
mother here on earth.
I think a lot of mums know just how
special they are, because they know something very special - you are not
just her child, but you are one of God's children, too - one of His
daughters (or sons - if there are any girls sharing this with their
brothers!). Your mum knows she is a care-taker, if you like, of one of
the greatest treasures God has created - you. And that makes her job
just that much more important to her.
As kids, you probably never
before thought of how special that makes your mum. Why don't you hop of
the computer, give her a great, big hug, and tell her just how special
she is to you!
