The GIFT Of MOM!

healing mother peace May 08, 2022

How does the dictionary define the word, MOTHER?

  • a female who has given birth to offspring
  • a female substituting in the function of a mother
  • motherly qualities, such as maternal affection
  • a female or thing that creates, nurtures, protects, etc
  • a title given to members of female religious orders

In serving thousands of families in the past twenty years, the thought and emotions evoked of Mother's Day can vary based on your particular life experiences and encounters.

I reluctantly packed my bags, yet am excited about the new opportunities for the upcoming month. The weather forecast stated sunny skies, yet cautioning the listener to beware of road debris from an overnight coastal wind storm. Based on that information, I decided to return home using the interstate highways versus the tree-lined scenic route.

I put on my baseball cap, grabbed my sunglasses, placed my two dogs in the car, loaded the luggage, then said a prayer before pulling out of the parking lot.

Within 20 minutes I was on the sunny interstate cruising at 60 miles per hour with the GPS quoting an ETA of four hours. Thirty miles into the trip in my rearview mirror I notice a car bobbing and weaving in the distance at an accelerated...
