My Mother

When I was a little girl, I had an ear infection just about every time I got sick. The pain was so intense it would make hot tears roll down my face. The only thing that would make me feel even a little better was when my mother would hold my head in her lap with my ears cupped in her hands. Her hands were always warm and soft and gentle.  I could feel her love flow through her hands like an energy and I would fall asleep there between her hands.Even now whenever I'm sick, I crave that feeling of being in my mother hands and feeling her love.

I talk to my mother about once a day and I treasure the friendship we have. She's a beautiful person with a big open heart.

Dear Lord, Thank you for my sweet mother. Thank you for your grace in giving me such a wonderful, caring mother. Thank you for listening to her prayers for me and my family. She has strong faith but she worries so much. Will you help ease her mind and trust that you are there? In your name, I pray. Amen.


  1. i hope you don't mind but i'm going to use this prayer for my mom also...it says it all! ;)

  2. a mother's love . . how I miss stopping by Mom & Dad's h ouse and telling them something small but important to me and Mom being so happy . . no one else in the world ever gave me that feeling . . unconditional love and excitement for things I did.
