Momma Mia is a common saying. Since today is Mother’s day, I tried to find its meaning. Momma is easy enough but that Mia thing; not so. The dictionary says that MIA means a soldier missing in action and many a mother is in that exact spot.
My mother would be 97 this year, but she died many years ago. Still I remember her with love. I will wear a white flower today as a remembrance of her. If you are fortunate to have your mom still soldiering on with you, wear a red flower for her.
Don’t think much of your mother? Be grateful for at least these things.
She carried you in her womb.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13, NIV)
She gave birth to you.
From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother’s womb. (Psalm 71:6, NIV)
Prayer – Thanks you Lord, for my mother. Amen
