Happy Mothers Day

The following is a note I shared with my friends and family on Facebook. I am sharing it here because you have been part of this journey. Many of you have invested time in giving me motherly or friendly advise over the years and also encouraged me on my journey. Happy Mothers' Day!
*************************************************

To my non-UK Mothers


Each year in March we celebrate Mother's Day here in the UK. In other parts of the world, mothers are honoured in the month of May. My two sisters, Patria and Nicole and a few friends (who all live abroad with their families) never fail to call and wish me 'Happy Mother's Day', both in March as well as in May. Because of the love showed towards me each year from these individuals, as well as the children and youth I've come across in Sunday schools and youth groups, I was able to look back on what God has been doing in my life. It reminds me that I have had a mothering role way before I was called into this ministry on a full-time basis, with our son Javin. It led me to recall the years that other mothers have invested in my growth and development.


Today, the 9th May 2011, I have another opportunity to recognise and be grateful for the many mothers who have touched my life in a very special way. On this day I shall remember my other mothers in the States, Canada and in Jamaica, who have all had an opportunity to mother me in some way, over the years. I shall say a special prayer for my Aunts Sadie Green; Grace James; the lovely ladies from the community in which I was brought up and those special ladies who spend time on their knees for me from the Sligoville Baptist Church (St. Catherine, Jamaica).

I think of friendship and the friends in my life whose mothers I may not know but thank God today that they gave birth to these beautiful individuals I call friends. I do believe that Friends are God's way of taking care of us. My friends have played a very important role in my life and helped me to reach a place of embracing forgiveness; bringing freedom to live again.


I also think back on the many lessons of my youth, taught to me by my late Grandma Peddie; my Sunday school teachers and my youth leaders. I thank God for the time and energy these ladies have invested in us as youth.


To all my friends who are mothers, I wish you a brilliant day. Don't forget to let your mothers know how much you appreciate them. If you no longer have the opportunity to do so then remember the good times and the lessons they've taught you. If they are still around and you are living away from home, remember to visit or call.


The day has been blessed. Now enjoy the blessing of another day.


Your sister in Christ
Janice

Thanks Janice for this much-needed reminder- for those who Mother/ parrent us and those for whom we fulfil the same role. And of course, God too is described as a hen who "gathers her chicks". My Mother was never happier than when all her brood were safely tucked up in bed. Thanks for the necouragement on my Twin piece; I am mostly at Premier Community these days where I am co-administrator of the Prayerwall and someetimes post poetry on the Poetry Page. I tend to stay clear of the Forums!

Thanks Janice, for your tribute to MOTHERS, even though for you it isn't MOTHER'S Day...And even though I am not a mother to birth children, I am encouraged to know that I have been thoroughly greeted by many. Your message is a blessing...Thanks! ... Sorry I haven't been able to comment on FW writings lately, as I have been busy with medical needs for Hart. I am happy in my role as a wife and caregiver...God bless you...Helen
