Happy Mother's Day! This is my mom's 25th Mother's Day (THANKS TO ME!) and I am sad that I am not with her! I am thankful to consider my mom to be one of my best friends. Even thought we live 1000 miles apart, we talk and email every day. I like staying current on the "little things" in her day and keeping her updated with my life.
When I'm happy, sad, frustrated, sick, have a "light bulb" idea or just want to talk--Mom is one of the first people I contact. She is a great listener and full of wisdom. I pray that one day I will be as wise and Godly as she is.
Each mother is unique and wonderful in her own way. My mother has played a huge role in my faith. Not only has she taught me straight from the Bible but her life is a living example of Christ's love and grace. Growing up and even today, she is quick to point me to Christ when I am struggling with an issue or upset about a situation. Because of that, she has helped me build a habit to turn to Jesus with everything--first.
Mom--thank you for all you have given me, taught me and sacrificed for me. I am awed and thankful for the ways you continue to do all of these things. I am blessed to have you as my MOM and FRIEND. You are my project partner, shopping buddy and coffee drinking friend. I look forward to the years ahead. As you always tell me, I love you through eternity!
