Behold Thy Mother

Some things are too sacred to write about … because there isn’t adequate expression for them.

.

Womanhood … and Motherhood, may be one of those.

.

The flowers,

the chocolates,

the handmade cards,

the various pieces of handmade pottery (oh bless those elementary school teachers),

the well-meant sermons in church

They really don’t even come close at all do they?

.

.

Because being understood

… really understood,

… to know that someone else fully sees you,

… what you’re experiencing,

… the sacrifices you’re making,

as a woman, as a mother, as a daughter of God,

… to know that you’re not alone,

… that you have Heavenly assistance in this divine role

.

That understanding isn’t something any earthly gesture can provide.

.

Perhaps the only approximation is to be in the presence of other women … who know … and see.

.

No, that level of being understood … recognized … acknowledged … known … loved … appreciated … supported …

.

Can really only come from one source.

.

And so … you all keep all these things in your hearts.

.

We’ll never be able to express it with our words or actions

… but we’ll keep trying … because we love you.

.

And maybe someday … we’ll truly see.

.

.

“Motherhood is more than bearing children, … It is the essence of who we are as women. It defines our very identity, our divine stature and nature, and the unique traits our Father gave us.” – “Are We Not All Mothers” – Sheri Dew
