I GIVE THANKS FOR MOTHERLY LOVE.
God’s love, expressing through my mother, gave me life. God’s love, wisdom, and strength guided her and all those who nurtured me as I grew.
My words of praise and gratitude let me show my mother how much I appreciate her. When I wish to demonstrate my appreciation for my mother’s example, I share the nurturing, motherly love of God in my words and actions with all people. Remembering the times when my mother or another compassionate person listened patiently and shared encouraging words, I seek to be a caring, supportive presence. Recalling my mother’s joy each time I learned something new, I share my skills and knowledge willingly when someone seeks my help.
In gratitude, I share the gift of nurturing love.
As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you.—Isaiah 66:13
