    Celebrate Your Mother Every Day!

    We celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May. However you don’t have to focus on only one day in the year to honor your mother. Here are some ways that you can celebrate your mother every day!

    Appreciate Your Mother’s Role

    God has a plan for everyone’s life and that includes your mother! He has specifically preordained her to be your mother which means that part of her divine purpose is to help you develop your divine purpose. What an amazing job! Think about it. Your mother has been preordained by GOD to help you fulfill your calling! So the next time you have differing viewpoints, give her some slack. She’s only doing what she thinks is best for you.

    Understand that EVERYONE has Limitations

    NO ONE is perfect, not even your mother. The Bible says that “We all stumble in many ways” (James 3:2.) This means that your mom will make mistakes sometimes. But don’t be so quick to criticize her when she falls short of your expectations. She loves you and she strives hard to do what’s in your best interest. Unfortunately, we ALL miss the mark sometimes.

    No Disrespect Allowed!

    Communicate appropriately with your mother! Even when you’re angry, you should always remain respectful toward her. Refrain from yelling and making hurtful or sarcastic comments. Don’t forget that your mom has feelings, too! Besides, God tells you to “honor your father and mother…so that it may go well with you.” (Ephesians 6:2-3.)

    Also, remember:

    You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.

    In other words, during disagreements, your point will be better received by your mother if you present yourself in a calm and respectful manner. Also, keep in mind that a pleasant presentation could actually aid you in successfully negotiating a resolution that both you and your mom can live with!

    Your mother’s love is unconditional. Never underestimate the sacrifices that she’ll make for you. So what are some ways that you can show appreciation for your mother on a regular basis?

    1. Try to put yourself in your mother’s position when you are upset with her. She has all of the same emotions you do. She has her weeks to when things are harder to control to. I find with my mom calm communication is key. Many times when I’m upset with her it is a misunderstanding, so repeating what the offense is helps to clear things up.
