A Mother's Day tribute: Celebrating the earthly angels among us

Mother’s Day is a special time to honor the women who have shaped our lives with love, sacrifice and unwavering support. Abraham Lincoln once said, “All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.” This sentiment echoes the feelings of many who recognize their mothers’ profound influence on their lives.


In the grand tapestry of life, God had infinite ways to bring new life into the world. Yet, He chose Mothers, His “earthly angels,” to fulfill this sacred role. This divine decision speaks volumes about the value and trust placed in motherhood.


The message is simple: Mothers care for their children and are the key to continuing God’s plan for humanity. This role is so significant that even the Savior of the World was born of a mother, highlighting the value and trust God places in motherhood.


The word “Mother” describes a unique type of love. One that is deep, selfless and enduring. It’s no wonder Rudyard Kipling wrote, “God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made Mothers.” Mothers extend God’s love on earth, providing a comforting presence that is always there, even when unseen.


In the eyes of their children, mothers are superheroes, embodying strength, resilience and a love that knows no bounds. They take on the most challenging jobs, often crying when happy, laughing when heartbroken, and forever caring for them. From the joy and laughter to the tears and sacrifices, Mothers are the architects of our identities, providing comfort in distress and cheering us on in triumph.


There is no single way to be a mother, and every mother’s journey is unique. Washington Irving said, “A mother is the truest friend we have when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness and cause peace to return to our hearts.”


Whether you’re celebrating your own mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, or a mother figure who holds a special place in your heart, it’s essential to let them know how important their presence is in your life. This Mother’s Day, let them know you love and appreciate them. Don’t take next Mother’s Day for granted.


Today and every day, let’s honor these earthly angels who bring God’s children into the world, nurture them, and guide them through life with a love that mirrors the Divine: our mothers!
