Mother’s Day from this mother’s point of view

May she who gave you birth be happy. O my son, give me your heart. May your eyes take delight in following my ways. Prov. 23:25-26

I am so happy to be the mother of each one of my grown-up children.
May they remember our journey through childhood together with delight.
May only the best of my influences carry over into the lives they carve out for themselves as adults.
May they follow whatever of my ways they find life-giving and helpful,
and forgive me for the ways that left them scarred…and may those scars be temporary and healed.
May we enjoy many more journeys together as adults.
May the ways I travel with their families be filled with new delights
and continually marked by love.
May they always be aware of my unconditional love for them.
And of their’s father’s love.
And of Your love.

Lord, thank you for this delight I call motherhood!
