Erma Bombeck does a lot of writing on the subject of motherhood. She has always said that, "The easiest part of being a mother is giving birth.... the hardest part is showing up for it each day..." There are so many valuable characteristics of a mother. She is a referee, judge, counselor, and nurse all in one. These job descriptions certainly are not limited to a mother but these daily tasks often fall upon mothers. Washing, cleaning, helping with homework, yard work, and a thousand other jobs.
A mother moves the toys out of the driveway, finds the right shirt or dress and retrieves the tennis ball before it is flushed down the toilet. There are so many valuable characteristics of a mother, but there is one that stands out in the eyes of God above all others and it is her attitude toward Him. Proverbs 31:30, “The woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” In the middle of a world upside down in value you find a woman who looks at her child through the eyes of God and not the eyes of the culture. Never underestimate the power God has given you as a mother. You have the ability to make a difference in the lives of generations to follow you.
