A mother’s love is a beautiful gift. God uniquely designed mothers with instincts, desires, and abilities that reflect His own nurturing and loving care for us. He has equipped moms in a special way, not only with the ability to bear and deliver a child, but also spiritually, emotionally, and mentally, for the task of raising up children in Christ. Mothers have insight into our children no one else does.
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you. Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me.” (Isaiah 49:15-16 ESV)
Because of how involved we are in every aspect of our children’s lives, it’s not uncommon for mothers to feel burned out, unappreciated, or taken for granted. We know deep down that our children and our spouses love us, but sometimes, we need the reminder in a more tangible form.
Here are 5 ways mothers feel loved by their children, followed by 5 ways mothers feel loved by others in their lives.
