To Be a Mother is such a great gift and calling. Although, I am not yet a mother myself, the blessed relationship I have with my own mother from a child growing up in the islands to this very day makes me appreciate the role of a mother dearly.
I adore my mom.
We hear time and time again that we become our mothers and what a beautiful thing it is when we can begin to embrace that statement. Especially when your mother gives you a loving and rich legacy filled with examples of a praying, devoted, caring , diligent lady inside and outside the home. She is accomplished and in every essence a Proverbial woman.
I know the terms I listed above is not the story for everyone. If that is not the case for you, maybe there is someone in your life who has filled that mom role. Someone who is a loving example and nurturing figure you can look up to and appreciate for her investment in you as a mother.
For all the amazing moms out there, here is a free printable download of a Certificate (also perfect for Teacher Appreciation Week) that shares the sentiment I believe to be true of all mothers:
You Are Absolutely Radiant.
I hope and pray to some day take a walk in your shoes as a mother myself. I know the journey is not easy The task is great before you and as I prepare for that day to come, my hat is off to you for all that you sacrifice and do for the one you love and those who are blessed to call you mom. You gave birth to a gift from heaven and you are the true gift to the little ones sent from up above.
While I was doing some research on the Mother’s Day gifts out on the internet, I came across this post by Good Housekeeping. As I perused the page and images, emotions began to surface and tears began to roll because I realize just how much the relationship I have with my mom makes me desire to be the kind of mother my mom is to me. A mother who is there to uplift and encourage. As we get older, we draw closer to each other, we understand each other and no matter what is going on in our lives and how busy life gets, our mother-daughter relationship cannot be broken.
Here is a fun little video I made for my mom a few birthdays ago, when I was not all too keen on YouTube but shared all the grand things and adventures with my mom on Facebook. Oh the memories! I am my mom’s 1st child, but when I am with my mom I can be like a child again, nurtured to dream and be all I am called to be.
Here are some relevant scriptures that further addresses the value of a mom:
*“Let your father and mother be glad; let her who bore you rejoice.” – Proverbs 23:22-25 *“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: ‘Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.’” – Proverbs 31:28-31 *“Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.” – Proverbs 31:25-28 *“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” – 3 John 1:4
*”You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.”

In the past I have created personalized Mother’s Day roses framed as a DIY Keepsake as shared in our last communication and on the blog. Last month I created DIY TN Inserts that led to a bulk Mother’s Day order. If you would like to make your own inserts from the tutorial simply visit this post. This year, I am adding some extra special creations to the mix.Declutter with me checklist
