I was reading about birds and read that when bird mothers are trying to hatch their eggs, they develop what is called a "brood spot." Blood starts rushing to this one point in the middle of their chest. That part of their chest becomes very warm. Then the mother birds press this brood spot up against their eggs. The warmth from the mother bird's brood spot helps to hatch the eggs. This brood spot helps the mother bird to care for her eggs.
Our mothers do a lot to care for us, too, don't they? Today is the day we celebrate mothers and thank them for all the wonderful things they do. There are many reasons why we love our mothers. One of our mother's jobs is to love us, so that we can learn to love other people. The Bible says that we are to love others, as Jesus has loved us. Let's remember to thank our mothers and parents for teaching us how to love.
"Honor your father and mother" this is the first commandment with a promise."
Dear Lord, We take this time to thank you for our loving mothers. In Jesus’s Name, Amen.
