God created women with the essential responsibility to bear children. Without women there would be no humanity (I guess the same could be said about men, but we’re celebrating Mother’s Day, so just go with this for now, lol). God also created women with the innate ability to nurture, comfort and care deeply for their children. That’s why a mother is so protective. You see it everywhere in the animal kingdom, mother’s having to ward off predators and keep their children from danger. Mothers are usually the teachers and quite often provide for their children. The list of jobs and responsibilities of a mother in the household is quite exhaustive but here are a few: A mother is a cook, counselor, nurse, teacher, maid, chauffer, spiritual advisor, nutritionist, accountant, peacemaker, entertainer, etc. There are so many other roles that our mothers fulfill each and every day.
Motherhood comes in many forms. Not all women bear their own children, but many will adopt or take on the responsibilities to look after and care for other children. We have spiritual mom’s, adoptive moms, friend moms, boss moms, teacher moms and "in-law" moms. The role of motherhood is so great in our society and culture we even have what we call in Hawaii, “hannai” moms. This is when a family “unofficially” adopts a niece or nephew, grand child or child who just needs guidance and they take them in and help raise them. Again, this is all part of the motherly nature that God has designed women to have. You see this in young girls as they grow up playing with dolls. Well, that motherly nature never ends. Motherhood is truly unique and God-given.
So I just wanted to say Happy Mother’s Day to all our respective moms within the KHCN family. We are all truly blessed because of you.
