Ain’t Got No Mama!
She viewed me coming down the aisle to pick up my repaired
hearing aid.“Come into my office,” said
my friend, the middle aged, Hearing Specialist.
I noticed she was fidgeting with a lonely button and a
sewing kit, as she explained.“I just
purchased this sweater vest, and a minute ago one of the buttons fell off.I can’t get one of the needles threaded to
Restlessly she opened the sewing kit and moved about the
many needles inside a small box.Almost
frantically she said, “Is this the needle threader? I can’t make it work.”
As I reached out to select a needle, she handed me the
Carefully, I inserted the threader into the eye of the
needle, and showed her how to pass the thread through and then gently pull it
into the needle.
Quickly I picked up the button and proceeded to reattach it
to her sweater.
“You need your mama,” I said to her.
Her response surprised me when she replied; “Hazel I never
had a mama.My birth mother did not want
me or my sister, so my grandma raised us our early years, and she was mean to
us.Later I went to live with my dad,
and my step mother was uncaring and hateful to me.”
I answered, “So you did not have a mother figure to be a
good role model and to show you love?”
She replied, “That is true.”
I told her, “Well, I love you,” as I reached out and gave
her a hug, and she hugged back.

also proud of my adult children.”
In life not all children are fortunate to have a good
relationship with their mother, (or their father) even those still living at
I think back at the many times I failed as a mother to be
patient and kind to my own children.Today, I am thankful that my children have forgiven me.
Jesus gave explicit instructions about children and those
who abuse and harm the little ones.He
said, “It would be better that a millstone was hanged around their neck and
they were cast into the sea.”
Now that seems a bit harsh, but Jesus did not take kindly to
the mistreatment of children.
Paul instructed Fathers not to tease and aggravate their
children and cause them to be angry.
Ephesians6:4And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up
in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
I am reminded that Paul also said children were to obey and
honor their parents, and give them respect.
How is everything at your home this day?
