Greetings Brothers of the Third District,
Mother’s Day is an annual reminder to cherish the relationship you have with your mom. Given this year’s unique circumstances, many of us are celebrating the holiday this Sunday at home or away from those we love most.
While some Mother’s Day traditions like spa days and brunch are not available this year, the sentiment behind the holiday is more meaningful than ever before. We encourage you to find creative ways to celebrate and communicate with your moms.
What does it mean to honor your mother? It may include paying her a visit, giving her a gift, sending her a card, making a telephone call to her, writing her a letter, even wearing a special flower on that day to commemorate whether she is living or dead. All these things are nice. But there are much, much more things of deeper significance. To honor means to regard and treat with great respect and esteem. The very definition includes both the heart and the manifestation of the attitude in the heart. It is a disposition toward mother that demonstrates itself in deeds.
It is still true that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. Mothers have such tremendous burdens and responsibilities. They exert such care and concern, and often without the resources she really needs. Their hearts surely are the biggest in the world. On behalf of the District Council, we send Mother’s Day blessings to the Mothers in your lives!
Brother Conrado Morgan
