Exodus 20:12 reads, “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land that the Lord your God gives you.” The fifth of the Ten Commandments, this mandate is considered the greatest inter-generational obligation. This commandment is repeated in the bible at Deuteronomy 5:16.
My Mother took meticulous care of me as a baby … and through the years. She has never left me! My reliance upon the advice that she imparts from her lips makes me wiser. Without question, she is my anchor! Now, I have the distinct pleasure to take care of her and take these scriptures to heart! I am honored to be of service to her! So, I am taking a family medical leave for a few days. I will resume my blog soon … so that I can share with you the conversations between my Mother and me. I can’t wait to be in her continuous presence! She and I have so much “stuff to talk about!”
