The 1st Commandment

Mother is a verb. It’s something you do.

Not just who you are.

Shortly after my birth, my dad became disabled and was not able to work. This not only put a strain on the marriage and finances but it put a strain on my relationship with my mother. She became the breadwinner which made it not possible to stay at home with me and bond.

I spent my early years with my dad. My bond with my dad was much like most daughters have with their mothers. Dad was my mom for the first 5 years of my life. It’s why I want to honor both of them today.

Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

Exodus 20:12
