Blog Entry: ITS DAYLIGHT AND I  HAVEN'T SLEPT YET. MANY TIMES I GO WITHOUT SLEEP WHICH IS VERY FRUSTRATING ESPECIALLY WHEN IN SEVERE PAIN. HOWEVER, I ALWAYS RELY ON GOD TO HELP ME NOT TO LOSE WHAT IS LEFT OF MY MIND. (SMILE) ITS BEEN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT SINCE I LOST MY MOM IN 2015. A COUPLE OR MORE PEOPLE MAY KNOW THAT I WAS VERY CLOSE TO MY MOTHER. IT DIDN'T MATTER HOW OLD I WAS, I WAS STILL HER BABY. WATCHING MY OWN CHILD GROW UP, I APPRECIATE EVEN MORE THE SACRIFICES THAT BOTH MY PARENTS MADE FOR ME. YEARS AFTER MY DAD DIED, MY MOM WAS A TOWER OF STRENGTH TO ME. SHE WILLINGLY EVEN HELPED TO RAISE MY SON. I'LL ALWAYS BE THANKFUL KNOWING THAT MY MOM AND MY SON HAD A WONDERFUL LOVING RELATIONSHIP. I NEVER HAD TO QUESTION HER LOVE AND I'M SO GLAD THAT SHE KNEW I LOVED HER DEEPLY. I'VE SEEN VARIOUS MOTHERS CRY BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T UNDERSTAND THE PATH THAT THEIR CHILDREN CHOSE IN LIFE. MANY TIMES WHEN OUR CHILDREN LEAD LIVES THAT ARE CONTRARY TO GOD'S WILL, WE TEND TO BLAME OURSELVES. WE TORMENT OURSELVES ASKING WHAT IT IS THAT WE DID WRONG. MY DEAR MOTHERS, WHILE WE ARE IN THIS SINFUL WORLD, WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE PROBLEMS. YES, I KNOW ITS EXTREMELY MORE DIFFICULT FOR SOME MOTHERS THAN IT IS FOR OTHERS. THERE ARE SO MANY TERRIBLE AND EVIL INFLUENCES IN THE WORLD, THAT NO MATTER HOW HARD WE TRY, WE CAN'T ALWAYS PREVENT OUR KIDS FROM GOING DOWN A PATH THAT ONLY LEADS TO DESTRUCTION. I KNOW AT TIMES YOU MAY FEEL DISCOURAGED. THAT'S NORMAL. JUST DON'T STAY IN THAT STATE FOR A LONG PERIOD. VERY QUICKLY, THAT DISCOURAGING FEELING CAN LEAD TO SERIOUS DEPRESSION WHICH THEN MAKES THINGS EVEN WORSE FOR US ALL.  MY HEART IS BURDENED KNOWING THAT THERE ARE TIMES WHEN YOU MAY FEEL AS IF UR ALONE AND NO ONE CARES. MY SISTERS, MOTHERS, I'M HERE TO REMIND YOU OF WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. WE ARE NOT ALONE. AS MOTHERS, WE HAVE A SACRED JOB. ONCE UR A MOTHER, UR LIFE CHANGES FOREVER. FOR OUR KIDS, WE ARE TEACHERS, NURSES, CAREGIVERS. WE HAVE A HUGE RESPONSIBILITY TO TRY AND GROW OUR CHILDREN IN THE WAY GOD WANTS US TO. I'M IMPLORING YOU THAT NO MATTER THE TRIALS YOU'RE GOING THRU, PLS REMEMBER, ESPECIALLY ON UR LOWEST DAYS, THAT YOU HAVE THE TRINITY TO HELP YOU. GOD OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, LOVES US, SUCH IMPERFECT PEOPLE THAT HE SENT HIS SON JESUS TO DIE FOR US, WE WHO ARE SO UNWORTHY AND HE HAS GIVEN US THE HOLY SPIRIT TO COMFORT AND ENCOURAGE US. THE REALLY WONDERFUL AWESOME THING ABOUT JESUS IS THAT, HE WAS RESURRECTED AND SO HE IS VERY MUCH ALIVE. JESUS HAS TOLD US THAT IF WE NEED HIM, WE'RE TO CLAIM HIS PROMISE THAT HE WILL ALWAYS BE THERE FOR US. HE IS READY ALWAYS TO INTERCEDE TO OUR FATHER ON OUR BEHALF. I PERSONALLY TAKE SUCH COMFORT IN THAT. FRIENDS, MOTHERS, WE ARE A SPECIAL. YES, WE ARE. GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT CONSIDERS US MOTHERS TO BE SPECIAL, SO WHO ARE WE TO SAY OTHERWISE? BE OF GOOD CHEER. WE ARE NOT ALONE. WE ARE LOVED. NO MATTER HOW OLD OUR CHILDREN GET, WE ARE STILL THEIR MOTHERS. KEEP TRUSTING IN GOD. HOLD FAST TO YOUR FAITH. GOD SEES OUR TEARS. HE HEARS OUR CRIES. HE UNDERSTANDS US MORE THAN WE UNDERSTAND OURSELVES. BELIEVE ME, I KNOW THE JOYS AND SORROWS OF BEING A MOTHER BUT I WOULDN'T TRADE BEING A MOM FOR ANYTHING. I'M PRAYING FOR EVERY SINGLE MOTHER ON THIS SITE. WHETHER OR NOT, YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS NOW OR HAD PROBLEMS IN THE PAST WITH YOUR CHILDREN, JESUS IS THERE TO HELP YOU THRU WITH ANYTHING THAT CONCERNS YOU. REMEMBER ALSO, THAT WE HAVE OUR OWN MOTHERS. SOME MAY HAVE PASSED AWAY, SOME MAY STILL BE HERE. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WAS OR IS WITH YOUR MOTHERS. I ONLY KNOW THAT NO PROBLEM IS TOO SMALL FOR JESUS TO HELP YOU. LETS GIVE THANKS ALWAYS FOR THE FACT THAT WE HAVE A SAVIOR WE CAN TURN TO. BEING A MOTHER IS A PRIVILEDGE. WE ARE BLESSED. I KNOW ITS NOT ALWAYS EASY BUT PLS DON'T EVER GIVE UP. INSTEAD, LETS BE THERE FOR EACH OTHER. AND I BESEECH YOU, PLS TRY AND TAKE A FEW MINUTES FOR YOURSELF AS OFTEN AS U CAN EACH WEEK. WE'RE ALWAYS THINKING OF WHAT WE CAN DO FOR OUR CHILDREN. BUT WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES TOO. SO PLS, TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF. EVEN IF U HAVE TO WORK THAT IN UR BUSY SCHEDULE. YOU WILL FIND THAT IT ACTUALLY CAN HELP YOU IF UR HAVING PROBLEMS. WE OWE IT OURSELVES TO TAKE A COUPLE DAYS FOR OURSELVES EACH YEAR. HELPS US NOT TO GO CRAZY. YOU MAY THINK I'M NOT BEING RATIONAL BUT I SINCERELY PRAY THAT YOU WILL SEE WHAT I'M SAYING. I'VE TAKEN ENOUGH OF YOUR TIME. I THANK YOU FOR READING. I JUST WANTED TO SHARE MY THOUGHTS WITH YOU AND TO REMIND YOU THAT NO MATTER HOW DIFFICULT A SITUATION MAY BECOME WITH OUR KIDS, JESUS IS READY AND WAITING TO GIVE US ALL THE HELP THAT WE NEED. LETS KEEP TRUSTING IN HIM. ALL THE BEST, ARIA.
