Then I thought, wow, I am becoming more like my mother!
Now many of you women readers may be saying "oh please, don't tell me I am getting like my mother!" Ok, well maybe you aren't. But many of us are, and if we aren't now, we certainly get closer to becoming like our mother the longer we live. I can only hope this is true for me. I had the best mother in the world. To be even a smidgen like her would be a great gift.
|My beautiful mother|
So, I am going to continue turning my almost empty bottle up-side-down (works really well with ketchup) and "policing the yard" (see blog post November 27, 2010) and trying to smile all the time (how did she do that?) so that in fact I can remember my mom, honor her memory and become more like her.
During this beautiful month of May, we do well to likewise imitate our Heavenly Mother, Mary. She who was conceived without sin and followed the will of God in every way is the best one to imitate. We can also ask her intercession to help us become the women we are called to be.
