I had a rough week last week and then a flat tire Friday night, but as soon as I got home all was well in the world. There's something about being back home. I feel safe and so sure of everything. When I'm home I remember how lucky I am to have such an amazing family. I was happy to get to spend Mother's Day with my family.
My Mom is the woman I want to be. On Sunday morning our pastor spoke about great Moms and how great Moms not only love their children, but they teach their children to love the Lord. My Mom loves me and she surely loves the Lord. I hope I can set the same example one day for my children and be able to love like she loves. When I was younger I noticed that my Mom was not like all the other Moms. She went above and beyond for us. Always. She didn't have to, but she did. Day after day. She is not only caring but she's strong. She isn't afraid to stand up for herself and for others. I wish I could be more like her. As I get older, I realize how lucky I am to have her in my life. She's my best friend.
"My Mother is the bones of my spine keeping me straight and true. She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. She is the beating of my heart. I cannot imagine a life without her."
Thank you Mom, for everything. I love you.
