The essence of a mother

Charmaine Jacobs, Ottery

Motherhood is more than bearing children, it is the essence of who we are as a woman. Motherhood is not a hobby, it’s a calling from God. Motherhood is the greatest thing and the hardest thing, but we are uniquely designed to be
a mother.

God creates a mother with a plan and a purpose.

Her job has no bond and her love is limitless. A woman is powerful, she carries pain and sacrifices at all time.

A successful woman is one who can build a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at her over the years.

Mother is just a simple word, but it holds precious value, each letter of the word describes love, care, comfort and affection.

Mothers are unique, precious and are born with a special gift. The hours women work are sometimes unrecognised. In one week they work 84 hours, in a month 372 hours and in a year 4 380 hours.Wow! Wow!

That’s a mother’s job – do you ever pause and think about it, or do you also think a mother is just a word? If you did, please think again and again.

When a mother’s tears fall, she prays, when all turn their back on her she’s still praying faithfully, because she knows in who she believes.

Woman of strength, I salute you. May God bless and shower you with His blessings each and every day of your life for as long as you shall live.
