This article is dedicated to all my loved ones, especially my loving parents who are longer with us, but will be in my heart forever.
When one becomes a parent, we want the best for our children. During pregnancy, the expectant mother is careful about what she eats and eats nutritious meals so that the unborn child receives the best nutrients while he or she is developing in the mother’s womb. After the baby is born, the parents continue to take good care of the child and do all that is within their means to educate and protect the child from harm.
This level of care continues throughout the life of the child. Even when the child becomes an adult, the parents never stop caring, worrying and desiring the best for their sons and daughters. In the same token, God loves all His children, big and small, from the youngest to the eldest, regardless of age, color or gender.

Unfortunately, the corruption of sin has tainted this world and it is filled with much sadness, distress, oppression, war, poverty and hunger. People often want to question or blame God for their troubles, but God did not impose or cause these things to occur in this world. Man did this, not God.
In The Story of Creation (Genesis 1), it is evident that God created a paradise that included everything that we needed to live healthy, plentiful, peaceful and happy lives. The entire universe and every living creature, including you and I, was created beautifully and with much care to ensure that everything was balanced.
It is not God’s fault that man has disobeyed God, time and time again. However, every individual has free will and has the option to do the right things and live in accordance with God’s commandments. God understands that we are human and have our limitations. We will make mistakes along the way, but God is a loving, forgiving and merciful father. He knows what we hold in our hearts and knows us better than anyone.
Like a shepherd guarding his sheep, God protects and keeps watch over us. Whenever we are lost or have gone astray, God awaits with open arms for His children to come home to Him.

I have loved my sons since before they were born. I will never forget the times they were born and the first time I held them in my arms. Each time I looked into their eyes and held them, I fell in love with them over and over again.
Life is truly a miracle and must be protected, safeguarded and treasured. We must do everything within our means to protect the lives of the innocent and the environment in which we live.

The love of a parent is unique and very special, and is usually not understood until one becomes a parent. Although I knew that my sons would grow up one day, I was certainly not prepared to let them go. However, I have embraced this new chapter in our lives and look forward to the wonderful blessings that God has in store for us.
With that being said, I am very thankful to God for blessing me with the gift of motherhood. No matter where life leads us and no matter what happens in this lifetime, I will love and cherish my sons forever.
Thank you, God, for blessing me
with the wonderful gifts of
Life and Love.
Thank you for my family and
for the gift of motherhood.
Thank you for always taking care of me
and for never leaving my side.
I love you, my Lord and God, and
Bless Your Holy Name!
