“Men are what their mothers made them.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
I hold mothers in the deepest regard. I believe that mothers are closer to heaven than any other humans.
For example, when I learned about the magnificence of the human body, it became undeniable that God is real. Man could never create such a magnificent creation as a human being. A mother can, though.
I give mothers spiritual reverence because of this. They make a covenant with the Universal Divine Mother (God) to create children. Childbirth is a partnership between Mothers & God.
My mother was incredibly special to me. She’s, my angel. I’ve said repeatedly that we should honor mothers while they are here. and worship them when are gone. I worship my mother today and honored her when she was with me, especially while in my care, in her later years.
My mother had a very tough life. Those would be her exact words. “I had a tough life”, as she would tell me from time to time. She was born in 1918, endured The Great Depression and the Spanish influenza pandemic. And she stayed faithful in an abusive marriage to my father, who died when I was 8 months old. She had a total of 11 children, but two did not make it. But nine lived healthy fruitful lives. I was her last child, born when she was 42 years old.
She showed special affection to me from the very beginning. I believe that it was because I was born 8 months after my father died and because I would be her last child. I can remember her especially looking out for me.
She told me of stories where my father would throw me on the bed as an infant, and she would say. “You’re gonna kill my child”! She would then take me tenderly and comfort me. She would always give me special attention, even special meals, while my siblings had regular dinner.
As a young child, she used to sneak me to her job sometimes because she didn’t have anyone to take care of me before I started school. She worked as a maid for a family for almost 50 years. And would hide me in the back stairways that was built for servants’ use. She’d sneak me sandwiches and toys, while she worked to keep me quiet and occupied. I was obedient. I would occasionally peep through a cracked door to see her pray every day. Even at work.
I can remember when I was about 8 years old, she used to take me to the doctor. On one such trip, she tried to protect me from running across the street and the car hit her instead. I believe that the injury may have bothered her later in life, but she endured and never complained about it. She cared for me in such a special way and was not bashful about it. As I reflect on her on Mother’s Day, I can see in her, God’s nature. I didn’t realize that seeing this spiritual connection is also written about in almost every religion.
She was a deeply spiritual woman. She had unshakable faith, that she instilled in all of her children. She would tell us of her many trials, and how the Lord blessed her because she persevered and believed.
She did not only focus on me. She gave attention to her other children, as well. But I was the youngest and was the only of her children without a father. She recognized that I required more of her love. She served as my mother and my father.
An interesting fact is that when she was in high school, I believe 7th or 8th grade, she had to drop out to care for her mother. Her sister was not helpful. As a result, she had to give up her education in order to care for her mother, and also her grandfather who was from Cuba. She also had to work to keep the household going while my grandmother was extremely ill.
My experience caring for her in her last years was like déjà vu. I had to give up everything to care for her. My siblings were not helpful, either.
In her final years, I wrote the poem that wished both me and hear a Happy Mother’s Day. Because she was my mother and my father, as I was her mother and father, later in life.
As her caregiver, we lived a happy life together. We enjoyed extremely exciting times. She loved sharing family secrets with me. That’s because our relationship was incredibly special. We traveled the world together. …To the Casablanca medians, drinking hot mint tea on rooftops. We visited the Eiffel Tower, and she was eager to walk with me to the top bypassing the elevator. She was in her 80s then.
We visited Tunis, Tunisia in North Africa, where all of the homes, I guess by government regulation, have to be painted white with blue. It was unbelievably beautiful to see the different homes on a private city tour. We visited the Caribbean, Costa Rica, Bermuda, and many cities in the states.
I loved I call her “my favorite girl in the world”, which she really was, and is. We had a very distinct connection, and nothing could penetrate that. That’s challenging when you have eight other siblings who are all older.
Got hot nit gekent zayn umetum, hot er beshafn mames. “God couldn’t be everywhere, so He created mothers.” – Yiddish Saying
On Mother’s Day, I also want to salute all mothers. I also want to salute Mother Earth, Mother Nature, and Divine Mother.
Mothers are absolutely beautiful God-connected humans, when on Earth or in heaven. There may be a story or two of neglectful mothers, or of children resenting their mothers. I can’t speak to that simply because I can’t comprehend it.
I believe that all mothers have a special connection with God. How could I imagine such a thing as a ‘bad mother’? I see all mothers as having an uncontrollable love for their children directed by God, the Divine Mother. From my point of view, this God-spirit is in all mothers.
I might be able to entertain the possibility that the spiritual connection can be severed when mental illness. addiction or other tragic issues are involved. That may explain those hopefully rare situations. But outside of those scenarios, I believe that mothers are angels.
They are angels on Earth when they are here, and angels in heaven, after they ascend.
Mothers’ creation of the magnificence of the human body, with all its intricacies, is clearly a partnership with God. God had to be involved, but so was a woman, your mother.
That’s what mothers are to me. Kevy
“We all have mothers. We have a Birthmother, Earth mother, and a Spiritual mother. It is my wish that they forever fulfill their mission of instilling Love, Tenderness, Nonjudgment, and Patience in us all, and that we may do the same for our children, God’s children. I believe that is why God made mothers supreme human beings. – Kevy Michaels

“We have enjoined on man kindness to his parents; in pain did his mother bear him, and in pain did she give him birth” – (46:15)
- Mothers have a duty and a blessing to set their children on the right path in life.
- And mothers must stress the importance of cultivating a personal and intimate relationship with God, because that is what leads to Spiritual Freedom for us all.
Spiritual Responsibilities For Mothers
In India they think of God as the Mother Divine because the nature of the mother is more tender, forgiving, and ever merciful.
- Hindu Beliefs About Mothers
- God implanted in the heart of the mother a love that is unconditional regardless of the child’s merit or behavior.
- This love is more spiritual and greater than any other human expression of love.
- God is using as a vehicle the heart of the mother to care for his children.
- Mother’s babies are not their own babies. They are the children of the Divine Mother. Mothers are only given their children for a while, placed in their care for a time. It is not the mother’s child. It’s God’s.
- The more mothers can love the child, and guide them with tenderness, the more the Divine Mother will work through the mother’s heart as to guide them to guide the child rightly in life.
- The human love of a mother is closest to the perfection of God’s love.
- The mother’s love is not given to children to spoil him, but to soften this heart so that he may in turn soften other hearts with kindness and love.
- Mothers know when you call and what you need, even if you don’t reach them. …Such is the heart of a mother, filled with tenderness, and love.
- In a 2003 Queens University in Canada study, published in the Journal of Psychological Science, Her Voice is Powerful , it was concluded that we knew our mother’s voice before we were born. It found that the fetal heart races faster when a mother reads a poem then when stranger does.
- In its 2010 study, it was found that this conclusion stretches into adult life. A mother’s voice even in adult life reduces stress. It was found that the vocal maternal power of a mother lowers the stress hormone cortisol and raises the oxytocin hormone, linked with love and bonding.
- Mothers have two basic responsibilities
- Have a strong and active spiritual life because through this strong relationship with God, they will gain the wisdom, patience, and strength, and infinite tolerance it takes to guide the child on the correct path.
- Create a spiritual environment for the child. The best way to do this is through example, their behavior. Children absorb the mother’s thinking; they will imitate the mother’s behavior and habits. The mother is the child’s world. They want to be like the mother.
- Roles Mothers Should Play – Fulfill These Roles In A Lasting Way
- Teacher – Mothers should teach their children to pray, to talk to God. Teach them to talk to God as though he was in front of them. Teach them to pray.
- Mentor – If children observe a mother’s spiritual strength and faith, it will become second nature to them.
- Refuge/Sanctuary – When a child goes through difficulties, that only they must endure, mothers should let them. But when they come to the mother, she should be an oasis of comfort, love, and tenderness. Mothers should not judge them, but rather listen to them, guide them rightly.
- Coach – There are times when mothers will become a life coach. Mothers must praise children, telling them how proud they are of them.

“Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him and that ye be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor. And out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say: ‘My Lord! Bestow on them Thy Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood’ “ – (17:23-24)

A Mother’s Day Tribute = May 3, 2011 – Jewish Treats
Rabbi Ephraim Z. Buchwald, Director of Jewish Treats parent organization, the National Jewish Outreach Program, shares a special story about his mother in honor of Mother’s Day. Share a story about your Jewish Mother in a comment below!
First of all, we need to understand that Divine Mother is not a separate thing or person but is the feminine aspect of God. There’s really only one reality—the Infinite Consciousness that has produced all the different manifestations we see. But there can be different expressions of the Divine that appeal to people according to their own natures.
Some years ago, it came to me in meditation that what America needs is more consciousness of the Divine Mother to balance out the overly masculine, intellectual approach that is dominant here. With all our great mental insights, we’ve failed to realize one simple truth: this world is not real.
In essence, we are a part of the Infinite, and it’s God who’s playing our particular role in life. God is uniquely present in each one of us and has His own song to sing through everyone. The whole purpose of this great drama is to realize that you are God.
But we must be careful. We can’t correctly say, “This body is God. This personality is God.” No. But God is you—this is correct. In the end, Self-realization means to know that the whole universe is a part of our own reality, and that in our basic nature, we are infinite. Read More
