Honoring Our Parents

As a child, I could never imagine what it meant to be a mother. Now that I am a mother, I appreciate my mom so much more.

The love that I have for Gia is indescribable! I can only imagine how much my mom loves me and my sister. I can only imagine the thoughts and the plans that she had/has for us. Although she’s shared some of them with us, and has even tried to steer us in that way, we ultimately made/make our own decisions. How hard could that have been for her?

I appreciate my mom so much more now that I have my own child.

When I was younger, my mom would frequently bring up Eph. 6:1- 3

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise—“so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”

She would really emphasize the obey you parents part! Haha! I love her.

Now that I have my own child, I find myself copying her and raising my child similar to how she raised me and my sister. And that’s OK. I want to make her proud. I want her feel honored to have me as her daughter. I know that she does. I know that she is proud of me. I know that I am still here for somewhat obey her words in the Lord. And for that, I am thankful.
