A Mother’s Gratitude
Mother’s Day is this weekend, and it has me thinking about how blessed I am to be a mom. I only have one child, but he is very special to me. Even at 15, he still likes to spend time with his mom and is a good kid. My son is to me proof that we don’t always get what we deserve.
When I was his age, I gave my mom no end of grief. I was a straight-A student, but I certainly didn’t want to spend time with my parents. I didn’t tell my mom I loved her every day. If I got what I deserved, I would have a teenager just like I was. But I don’t.
I have a kid who is kind, compassionate, funny, artistic, and loving. I have a kid who has a strong faith in God, something I did not have at his age. Although he doesn’t get the best grades, I am proud of him.
Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” That is what I have tried to do with my son. I’m sure I haven’t done it perfectly, but where I have failed, God has stepped in and guided him. I pray the Holy Spirit will lead him always in the right way. That’s the best a mother can hope for her child.
I am glad your son has a good relationship with the Lord. There are women out there who have children that make great grades and achieve many things, but the Christian Mother hopes and prays for what the Lord has achieved in your child. What a precious thing the two of you share! 🙂
Have a sweet mother’s day Linda! I’m so glad you have the son you do! love in Him, deb
