I have a friend named Tory who has four kids. One day she walked into their living room and said to her son Jonathan, “Hello friend!” He looked at her and said with very serious eyes, “I don’t ever want to be your friend. It is so much more special to be your son.”
Do you realize how special it is to have your mom as YOUR mom? Your mom knows God gave you to her as a very special gift. But have you thought about how God also gave your mom to you as a very special gift? Out of all the millions and billions of moms around the entire world, God hand-picked your mom, just for you! WOW!
You can have lots and lots of friends, but there is only one person who carried you inside of them, gave you life, and takes care of your needs every single minute, day or night. Your mom has a very very special and powerful connection with you that no one else on earth has with you.
In the month of May, there is a day set aside called Mother’s Day that is specifically for honoring and blessing our moms. Ask God what you can do for your mom to make her feel especially honored, loved, and blessed. The Holy Spirit wants to speak to you and show you what you can do to let her know she is so much more special than any friend you could ever have!
