Something Father Larry said today “Mothers are the most tangible vessel of God’s love on Earth.”
Just think about it. Mothers are probably one of the bravest people on earth. They carry you for nine months, they bear with the crying and tantrums for the first year (and onwards!), they hold you when you’re sad, they make you laugh, they fight for you, they fight with you.. and they always stick around.
Your mother doesn’t always have to be the woman who gave birth to you. That is only part of what makes a mother. Your mother is the woman who never gives up on you. She’ll be there cheering you on, holding you back when she needs to, grounding you and teaching you to fly. Your mother is the woman who loves you unconditionally, even when you completely break her heart. There are those of us who are so lucky to have women who are all those things to us. I am grateful for my mother. She’s truly my the one and only Wonder Woman in my life.
Hug your mom today and thank her. It’s the least you can do.
