Do Everything In Love
Tammy Tangent Tuesdays
1 Corinthians 16:14
Hi Beautiful! I pray your week is being filled with tokens of kindness and sprinklings of love while being reminded how highly favored and blessed you are. It’s that time again; it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays! We’re all in this together, so let’s try and embrace this challenge with sincerity knowing that Mother’s Day is around the bend.
Mother’s Day is probably one of the “most prized” celebrated holidays with good reason. Those of us who are moms; you know, the mothers of magnificent and mothers of mayhem or even managers of many who survived being Super Heroes, we bask with glory on this day because we will always cherish those tender memories in our hearts. Plus, we are proud of our children and love them just the way they are!
But what happens to some of the mothers who are celebrating with their elderly mothers and not with their own children or those who have kids that live in another state and don’t get to be celebrated and cherished as the truly beautiful and honored mothers that they are? I know I fit in some of these categories myself along with a few friends.
Let’s reach out to others through love and appreciation!
Weekly challenge: Let’s acknowledge those who have blessed our life by choosing seven people, especially if they’re mothers who don’t live near their children, and send them a card or email letting them know how much you appreciate them and how you’ve been blessed by their life.
Try not to select just close friends. Think about your pharmacist, a teacher, your pastor or their wife (they never receive enough praise), police officers (when is the last time you thanked an officer), first responders, chaplains, even our waitresses.
Remember, this is designed to bring unity and change within our circle of influence in the community in order to change the atmosphere and to continue appreciating how each one of us impacts one another in society through the simple random act of doing everything in “love” (1 Corinthians 16:14).
And sadly, I know myself personally a few mothers whose lives will not be celebrated due to death, distance, disease, division of family, you name it. I will try and pour some love into their lives through acknowledgement by being the hands and feet of God because once a mother, always a mother!
It’s the little things that matter. I know I haven’t said it often enough, but thank you for being Beautiful You! I appreciate you more than you will ever know or hear. Never forget how valuable and precious your life is!
Until next time…
