Wisdom of a Child

To All you wonderful Mom's...and you all truly are, 
Happy Mother's Day!

As He so often does for me, God used my child tonight to help me see reality.
Not what I have necessarily thought to be reality, but true reality.

Jianna and Maria were telling me about all the people they saw buying flowers today for Mother's Day. "Even big people were buying them", Jianna piped up.
I explained that they were buying them for their mothers and that if I still had a mother, I would be doing that as well.

Jianna thought for only a second, before she opened my heart and mind with the following statement:
"Well, you know mom, you DO still have a mom, she just lives far away in Heaven. "

Pretty simple once she stated it that way...but I'd never really seen it  before.

How did I get to be so blessed to have this wise little person as my child?
Thanks Jianna, for making this Mother's day, all that much more special, you are truly one of my gifts.

Mom, I'm sending Love and Hugs to you as well, 
It's only time and space that separate us.
Happy Mother's Day!

God blessed us with those little gifts that allowed us to become Mothers. And He blessed us with their clear, unobstructed views that can help us to understand. As we have aged our 'vision' becomes quite 'cloudy'.

Thank you Jianna
I woke up this morning missing my mother,then watching all the moms and their kids today in church made me feel rather sad until
I read your moms post.
Your words not only blessed your mother but others too.
Bless you for your wisdom and thank you for adding even a more special gift to my day.
