Easter is such a special time, there is so much love and celebrating in our hearts for the Lord. So I felt Easter Sunday would be an appropriate time to sit down and write this post, that is also full of love and celebration. So as my husband and son are napping from the whirlwind of a day I am going to tell you an extra magical Motherhood is messy story.
And I know that I will never hear the end of it, and I may even get scolded. But even with that said I still feel it is necessary to magnify all that she does, quietly from behind the scenes.
Grandmothers are a special kind of Mother. They play such a huge role in building the foundation of love and faith in little eyes and in little hands. Whether you call her Grandma, G-Ma, Mimi, Mymsy, GeeBee, Bami, or some other wonderfully magical name, that name is no match to the love that you feel for her, your own Grandmother.
It is the love you feel for her that makes her magical. That same love you feel for her is equal to the love my family feels for the many Grandmothers that fill the tree of our family.
But the story I am going to share with you is of an extra special Grandmother that our family calls Gambie.
“After raising her own three boys Gambie gained magical powers that fix boo-boo’s with kisses, and a sixth since for seeing not only behind her but seeing through walls into the other room. Gambie, sometimes takes all six of her grandbabies to the grocery store all by her self and that is living proof of her bravery and magical powers that can shoo away even the scariest of boogie monsters.
Her heart is so full of love that she becomes Gambie to any little one in need of their own Gambie.
And I wont even lie the love in her hear is so big that she even becomes Gambie to any big ones that need their very own Gambie too! And I can personally vouch for this one! She has fed 10s of thousands of hungry tummies and given loving advice to that many more, and that isn’t an exaggeration that is a fact.”
So for all of us Mothers still in the first chapter of Motherhood, take comfort that this time is building superpowers, and take shelter under the wings of your own fairy godmother. I can’t promise that she will be able to wave a magic wand and turn a pumpkin into a carriage but chances are she will love you hard through it and that will be all you need.
I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.- 2 Timothy 1:5
