She was always there. Waking us up in the morning and reading to us as we fell asleep. Cheering for us on the sideline or caring for us when we were sick. Celebrating our achievements and consoling us when things fell apart.
Even for those of us who have lost our mothers, she is still there – in a favorite meal or cookie, in a stray thought or story, when we fall and unconsciously reach for her to help us up. She is never far from our minds.
Water With Blessings
, we celebrate Mother’s Day all the time. Because nearly every one of our Water Women is a Mother first and foremost. And as with most mothers, her care extends beyond her own family. She sees beyond her own four walls, understanding that others share in her desperate situation.
The filter and bucket are only tools. But in the hands of a Mother, a Water Woman, they become a source of life, protecting the health of God’s thirsty children.
So today, consider a Mother’s Day gift, either in honor of that person who continues to look after and worry about you, or in memory for the love she gave so selflessly. Please consider making a gift so that more Mothers will be able to care for their loved ones and those around them.
