Happy Mothers Day!

"Oh, I'm just a mom. I don't have a job."
Have you ever heard a mom say that?
Immediately the hair bristles on the back of my neck and sirens and lights go off in my head. "Just" a mom. How can moms say such a thing? I myself have been known to say it like that.

I assure you it is the most important job in all creation: to create order out of chaos, ensure the physical, emotional and spiritual well being of our children, and shape the individuals that will contribute to who we are as a community and a nation. I don't think we should ever use the words "just" and "mom" in the same sentence again.

Let's unpack that little word, "mom." What exactly is her job description? She's a wife, mother, friend, housekeeper, interior decorator, laundress, gourmet chef, short order cook, chauffeur, painter, wallpaper hanger, seamstress, nurse, guidance counselor, the list goes on and on. She may not get a salary, but the fringe benefits are invaluable: hugs, kisses, and buckets of love.
And hopefully, one day a child that will call her blessed in their own special way!

Even though we change hats from one minute to the next, we can assure our children that our love never changes, our support never tires, and our commitment is to be the best mom we can.

We are not perfect moms but we're MOMS.

This Mother's Day, my hat is off to moms! Thanks for all you do to raise the next generation for Jesus!
