1. Moms smother you in tenderness and kisses
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love.
   --Romans 8:38 NLT
Moms are the best kissers in the world. They get lots of practice smooching on tummies, on toes, on cheeks, and on heads. And their kisses come with extra helpings of smiles, giggles, and cuddles. They are kisses that are bountiful, warm, and slobbery. They are sweeter than lollipops, warmer than blankies, and more bountiful than cheddar fish.

   Thank You, God, for moms so full of compassion and tenderness, so full of the kind of sweet kisses that make us warm on the inside and loved all over.

150. Moms love it when you remember her special day!
She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor.
   --Proverbs 3:15-16
It only comes once a year, so she's hoping you will remember her on Mother's Day. Maybe a card or flowers or sweets. Perhaps a hug or a scarf or a pretty picture that you draw. Or maybe—if you're all grown up and have a really good job—you can give her a trip to the spa!

   Lord, help us always to treat our moms with affection and devotion and respect. And help us never to forget our moms on Mother's Day!
