When women have children, they do more than give birth to babies – they give birth to families. People are immediately transformed into “Mothers” and “Fathers”, “Sisters” and “Brothers”. Whole collections of people joined by blood, by love, and often both, gather together as families for the rest of their lives. They teach each other as they grow together, weaving the stories of their lives into a tapestry of memories. And then the young have grown up, and begun their own lives, and Mothers watch as their families grow in a whole new way. Branches of her tree extend further and further out, draw new members in, and have children of their own. This is one of the greatest treasures of Motherhood – the blessing of family.
When the day comes, each year, to pause, gather ‘round, and thank Mom for all she’s done, look at each of the faces. You are all there, all here, because of Mom. Your husbands and wives, sons and daughters are here, because of Mom. This year, thank her for all she’s done for you, and then thank her again, for making you a family.
Whether you are two or twenty strong, a precious piece of jewelry representing the whole family is a gift she will treasure for the rest of her life, and pass along for her children and grandchildren to treasure too.
