I coined a new title. It is called “Mother Sister Daughter”. Yes, I have a crazy way of thinking, but bear with me and it might make sense.
I first thought of this with my friend, Mary. She is a dear, senior saint in my church who is 90 years young. I enjoy spending time with Mary. She blesses me.
Now based on Mary’s age, the mother title makes sense. She seeks to invest in me in a similar way that a mom would.
She is my sister in Christ. I have a Proverbs 27:17 relationship with her. “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.”
I realize the daughter part of this title will be the most confusing. People who know me well, know that I have a mothering personality. I didn’t know this until my roommate my freshman year in college told me. Then I started noticing it.
I love my friend Mary – I love many friends with a fierce loyalty that can turn me into a “mama bear”. I want to care for my dear friends with a motherly love.
So no matter the age, these special ladies are my “mother sister daughters”. Because all of the titles fit.
So on this Mother’s Day weekend, I want to wish all of my Mother Sister Daughters a Happy Mother’s Day!
