Happy Mother’s Day

Mom – this is not the spring you dreamed of – is it? Nope, it’s been a trying time as you, and we are limited to where we can go and what we can do. But we want you to know how much we love you!

Yes, you’re the one who poured yourself into us and loved us, scolded us, taught us manners, showed us what it meant to be faithful, dependable, loyal, and loving. You showed up when it was inconvenient. You made our Halloween costumes, made a small food budget go a long way. You cleaned our wounds, put the bandage on, and assured us all would be well.

You were the one who made sure we were clean, were dressed well, and that we could be proud of our family. You taught us values, showed us what it meant to pray, to serve, and to be in a family and a community. You looked after us when we were sick, brought us chicken noodle soup and ginger ale! You took us to the doctor and came to our school events.

You made sure that we visited our grandparents, our aunts, and uncles, our cousins. You and Dad took us on vacation even if they weren’t fancy or expensive.

We could never repay you or be thankful enough.  Through you, we learned that the most important things in life aren’t things.

Thank you, Mom!
