Mother’s Day 2017 I wrote this article as a tribute to my mother, Barbara Hickcock Agnew. She passed away on June 21, 1993 and I still miss her to this day.
If you’re fortunate enough to have your mother still living today, then you are blessed. Now I do realize that not all mothers are created equally. Thank God for that because there are some women out there I swear should never have procreated.
I’m not saying that as a judgment by any means. I say it because there are those relationships where one’s own mother may have skipped out on a family, leaving a father single or an older child responsible to care for themselves and their siblings.
What makes a good mother?
Love, compassion, empathy, discipline, teaching children the ways of life. The most valuable lesson that I hope I’ve taught to my three children is to love God first.
I’ve always taught my children who Jesus Christ is and tried to show them what living a Christian life means.
Enjoy your time with your family or by yourself and have a Happy Mother’s Day.
