Give Her the Present of Your Presence| Showers’ Blessing Inspires
I received a text saying, “I am so missing my mother.” It made me think about mothers and what they are in our lives.
Oftentimes our mothers are taken for granted. We have this notion that they will be with us forever, in some respects they will be. A day will come, as it has for that person and me, when your Mother will make her transition. Before that happens I implore upon you to make time for your Mother.
Initially when I moved to Washington D.C. and would come back home for a visit, I would spend my entire time trying to see all of my friends. From the time I hit the city until I dashed off to the airport to catch my plane, I was consumed with being with making sure I made contact with everyone. Then it dawned on me.
My mother was getting older. I had no idea how long she would be around and I wanted to spend as much time as I possibly could with her. Instead of running to see this one and that one, I spent the bulk of my time with my Mother. Along the way I didn’t have as many friends, because I realized I was running to them and they were not flocking to see me.
The time I spent when I came back home with my Mother was priceless. When she took her last breath I knew that I had given her as much of me as I possibly could. Nothing could recompense my Mother for all that she had done for me, but I could give back by just being with her. In many instances, that is what our mothers want. They want our presence.
Your presence is the best present that you can give your mother. If your mother is still here give her the best gift—give her you! That is really all she wants.
