Happy Mother’s Day!

Made in His Image would like to wish all mothers, whether alive or in Heaven, a beautiful and blessed Mother’s Day!! We are praying for you in a special way today! Thank you for your selfless love.

My mom is one of the most giving and selfless people I know. Just last weekend when I called her early Sunday morning to tell her I had a layover at the Newark airport for two hours that I didn’t know about, she makes some of my favorite food to bring to me.

I bet I was the only person at the airport that day that was brought homemade blueberry scones, strawberries and a grilled balsamic chicken and roasted red pepper sandwich. Yep, I’d be willing to bet I was the only one!

From a very young age, I vividly remember my mom teaching me the power and beauty of the Rosary. I have seen my mother’s faith put into action through exceedingly difficult and traumatic times. She never doubted in the presence of God, despite all odds, always trusting that He would provide.

One of my favorites memories with my mom was when she taught me to bake. I miss those days so much. My mom is one of the most amazing and talented cooks alive. Her talent is incredible and her ability to bring people together through a meal is beautiful. She can take the most ordinary ingredients and turn them into a delicious masterpiece on your dinner, breakfast or lunch plate.

If there was a selfless mother award my mother would win it hands down. When I was going through therapy, she started her own music business – teaching children to play the piano and gave all the money to help pay my student loans, so I didn’t need to worry about another expense. My mother is an exquisite definition of selfless love. I aspire to love like her in my lifetime.

I love you Mom! Happy Mother’s Day! And yes, you were right, I wish I had listened to you and kept up with my piano lessons!

This is one of my favorite pictures of my mom, right after my brother’s wedding.

The Most Important Person on earth is a mother. She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral. She need not. She has built something more magnificent than any cathedral, a dwelling for an immortal soul. Even the angels have not been blessed with such a grace. They cannot share in God’s creative miracle to bring new saints to Heaven. Only a human mother can. Mothers are closer to God the Creator than any other creature; God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creation.

What on God’s good earth is more glorious than this: to be a mother? – Joseph Cardinal Mindzenty

Happy Mother’s Day!!

  1. That’s a wonderful photo of your mom, Maura. She’s radiating love. She’s also a beautiful woman. Fortunately for me, my mom and wife were also exceptional mothers and incredible women.
