Greetings JCCS Community
Mom! There is no one like her in the world. When you were a kid, any time that emotions were high, mom was always at the top of the list to soothe your wounds and bring peace. She was a pinnacle that you could always count on to love you regardless of the situation and be there when you really just needed someone.
Even now, in adulthood, mom is the gentle spirit that plays with your kids and the resounding screams of “Grandma” ring in the ears when you visit. The relationship with her has now changed, but she is still a huge relationship in your life.
And moving on further, maybe she is gone. Maybe your mother has passed on to be with the Lord. However, her memory is still firm in your mind and the pain of missing her is refreshed every year on this Sunday.
Wherever you are and whatever your relationship with your mother, moms are amazing. In watching my wife interact with my son, it leaves me to ask where we would be without them.
As a result, let’s celebrate them. Let’s give them an extra long hug and explain to her how much you are thankful for her. Let us take one day of our year to be thankful to God for the incredible blessing he has provided in these women. Maybe this is breakfast in bed, maybe it is sitting down for coffee after church on Sunday, maybe it is giving her a gift that symbolizes your love for her, or maybe it is spending time in reflection on the character of your late mother. Take some time for mom today, because she has devoted her life to you.
On a completely separate note, come on out to the school/church parking lot on Saturday, May 12. There is a great deal happening. First, get yourself filled up with eggs and bacon in the church fellowship hall, then head out to the parking lot (school gym, if raining) and look at the vendor marketplace that is set up. You may find something interesting to buy for mom, or yourself. In addition, stop by the JCCS table as members of our Marketing Committee will be selling some JCCS SWAG as well as asking your opinion on what SWAG you would be interested in buying in the future. It will be a great morning run by lots of volunteers and all to raise funds for our awesome school! Come and enjoy a great morning!
