I WISH I COULD SPEAK FOR MYSELF
Some of us grew up never knowing our mothers, some knew their mothers but wished they never did while others lived and enjoyed what it means to have a mother. Where ever you find yourself, this mnemonic for a MOTHER got me going. I listened to my spiritual father, Apostle Johnson Suleman who I have been following for some time now as he uses the WORD to describe a MOTHER and I said to myself this is who I am and if I am not then I must be.
A MOTHER is a Miracle who is Orderly, Trustworthy, Full of Humor, Enduring and Resilient.
Miracle: A mother is a Miracle because without her, you and me will not be here today. How she carries a baby in her womb for nine months or more is a Miracle. I did this back to back three consecutive times and I still wonder today when I look at my stomach. All I can say is "Miracle working God".
Orderly: A mother must know what to do at the right time. Her mind is on the go all the time and she must multi task all the time to get things done no matter how hard it gets.
Trustworthy: A mother must be Trustworthy because every child must have a mother he/she can trust. That way you go to bed knowing when you are sleeping, she is praying for you. A trustworthy mother must trust God to bless her children through continuous prayers no matter the circumstances.
Humor: A mother must learn to joke and play with her children all the time. Through the jokes, she gets to built a relationship that will last for ever. A house without humor is a house with problems.
Endurance: A mother must have endurance. As a mother, your level of endurance has to be very high because you are not marrying only your husband, you are marrying your in-laws.
Resilient: A resilient mother will not give up until her enemies give up. A resilient mother knows what she wants and will fight for her children till her last breath. She will keep a smile on her face even when she has no food to feed her family and will always intercede through prayers for her family.
I really love this and strive to follow the above principles as a mother. Some of you might have enjoyed a mother who lived according to these principles and some might have not. If you are like me and you are a mother, endeavor to live your life according to the above principles and let me know how it feels for you.
Cheers to your success!
