Momma: The Great Unsung Hero Writer's note: TI~ is a portion otthe oH$~ml PastomlNqpt I wrote for Mother ffyou desire to read the er re you may do so by goinE to: www.trouplmptist.orl and ciickt~ on the Pastoral N~gets icon- Will Rogers once said, canl all be heroes, because some- body has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by." I wonder ff you have a hero in your life who needs to hear your applause. Applause can be given in many ways. It is not limited to the clapping of our hands. Applause can be given with just a look, a faint smile, and the nod of a head. It can be given with a high five. It can be given with hoots, hollers, wolf whistles, and cat calls. It can be given by our attendance or our presence. The fact that you cared enough to be there, wherever there is, gives your validation and applause to the person you came to suppe~. It can be given by the squeeze of a hand. It can be given by a card, e-marl, tweet, or Facebook post. It can be given by a tele- phone call. It can be given by a cemplimenL It can be given by a hug. It can be given by a present. You get the picture. Your applause can be given in a myriad of different ways. The impor- tant thing is not really so much in "how" we give our applause, but the fact that we "give" our applause. As I was writing this Nugget, God brought a scene from long ago to my mind. My oldest daughter, Heather, was a member of the Troup High School Marching Band. Naturally, they per- formed during halftime at every home football game. As they would take the field and begin playing their songs and march- ing their routines, if you would have zoomed in closely on Heathers eyes, you would have seen her scouring the stands while she marched and played. Sometimes it would take her three or four minutes. Then, you would see a faint grin come across her lips when she found Marianne and me sitting in the stands watching her. It was her validation. It was the applause she needed to hear. AS I SAT DOWN to write this Nugget, I didn do so with the intention of writing about Mother's Day. Yet, I couldn help but think about momma. You see, momma's validation, momma's applause for me was one of the most important things in my life. I guess her death has been amplified by daddy's. Ten thousand times I have wished they were still here to validate and clap forj their baby boy. But sadly, those days are now gone forever. All I have left now are the memories of when I, as Heather, scoured life's grandstand searching for them and the joy I felt deep inside my soul when they validated and applauded me simply by their presence. Mother's Day is the 13th of this month. I encourage you in the strongest terms possible, if your mother is alive, do not miss this opportunity to stand and applaud as she passes by. God knows, she is worthy of your applause! If possible, go be with her - and don't be in a hurry to leave when you get there{ If you really want to make her day - go to church with her. Spend the day with her. Love her. And treat her like the queen she is{ You will think you are applauding and validating her. But trust me. If you live long enough, one day, as you think back on this Mother's Day visit, you will discover that once again, she was doing as only a mother could do, and it was she who was validating and applauding you. As you pass through this thing called life you will discover you are surrounded by many unsung heroes. None as unsung as momma. Remember what Will Rogers said, "We can't all be heroes, because somebodyhas to sit on the curb and clap as they go by." If your mother is alive, then it's your time to applaud. Applaud loudly. Go over the top{ I promise you won~ regret it. Aaron McCollough is an area missionary with the area Bap#st Association which serves HarrY, Meriweth~ and Troup counties.
