From the cross our Lord was taking care of His mother. After all that He had already experienced and the agony He was going through at the time, He looked down at the woman who bore Him. I am sure He knew that His wasn’t the only heart breaking! In compassion He told the apostle John to take care of Mary, and to treat her as if she was his own mother.
When a child hurts, a caring mother’s heart also hurts. Conversely, there is no joy and pride equal to that of a mother who celebrates her child’s accomplishments. Today we celebrate this high calling to motherhood. Ladies, I pray that this day will be the fuel you need to press on. May your family rise and bless you!
