Mother's Day - Daughters Of Pearl

2 Timothy 1:5 TPT

5 as I think of your strong faith that was passed down through your family line. It began with your grandmother Lois, 

who passed it on to your dear mother, Eunice. And it’s clear that you too are following in the footsteps of their godly example.
Mother's Day is the one day I am celebrated the most. It is on this day, I have the opportunity to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living and reflect on how GOD has richly blessed me as a woman, wife, and MOTHER.  I am who I am because GOD created me in HIS IMAGE...fearfully and wonderfully to be the woman, wife, and MOTHER I am and ever becoming.

One lesson that my Mother Pearl demonstrated over and over many times was the value of authentic relationships.  She was the Queen of Friendship.  Many of her friends still remind me how much my Mother's friendship meant to them.  The value she added by being there when they needed it, being present in their conversations, and always knew when to speak and when to remain prayerfully quiet.  Growing up, I did not see the GREAT value of these character traits; how they shape and sustain friendships over time. They are what created my Mother's legacy of being a true friend and a woman of virtue.  It is my hope my Mother's friendship legacy continues through me to the generations to come.

I am of a lineage of praying women, all who have a relationship with JEHOVAH GOD and value the worth of it as a praying woman, wife, and MOTHER. I have come to learn that without THIS relationship I can't have the impact I am purposed (created) to have in the lives of my family, community, and yes even the world.

The closest thing I have of reference to a crisis is September 11, better known as 9-11.  My Great Grandmother and Grandmother were survivors of the 1918 influenza pandemic, the most severe pandemic in recent history.  This MOTHER's DAY is significant as I am celebrating life, graduations, new beginnings, and restored relationships, amid a pandemic. I know that I am built to last...even THIS!
