Today is a special day to reflect on The Ultimate Give'r...the Mothers in our lives. It is impossible to convey all the appreciation and respect our mothers deserve in one day, but one can provide some special recognition this Sunday in May...
When examining the definition we have put forth for what "give'r" means, the following terms come into play: lifestyle fueled by passion, purpose, challenge and adventure; unrelenting pursuit of dreams; confidence to take the road less traveled by; desire to share the wonders of life with others, and simply, living inspired. When reading through these traits and characteristics, you can't help but see the connection to being a mother. From the very beginning, raising a child or children is an unknown adventure to bring another into this world. From teaching the basics like walking and talking, to the awkward/fun years of middle school and beyond, it is no doubt a journey without a road map. It is a lifelong marathon, and too often, the effort and energy dedicated to raising children is not recognized to an appropriate degree.
From each son or daughter, we thank the Mothers in the world who have made us who we are, and who continue to enact miracles each and every moment, of each and every day.
