I'm sure many of you have seen this skit before, or some version of it. In fact, I emailed it to a few friends today. However, if you haven't seen it, please take a few minutes to watch it. First time I saw it I was moved to tears. It's what I like to call "blog worthy."

It's Mother's Day! I'd like to wish my wonderful mom a very, very, very happy Mother's Day! I'm only sorry I couldn't go home to celebrate with her. One of the drawbacks of living in New Jersey for the summer is that I can't go home whenever I like. Maybe if Brian makes it to the big leagues one day I can afford to fly back and forth as much as I'd like!
To simply say that I'm thankful for my mom would be an understatement. She has been such a godly example throughout my life. What more can you ask for than a mom who emulates Christ on a regular basis? What greater lesson is there to be learned than Christ and him glorified? As I've grown older, I've learned to appreciate my mother's wise words, strong spirit and compassionate heart even more. Mothers never stop being mothers, and I'm thankful. I'm looking forward to the day when I'm a mom and can put everything she's taught me into practice. Something tells me it will be a lot harder than it looks!
Mom, I'm forever indebted to you in so many ways. Thank you for loving God and demonstrating his love to others. I love you and hope you have a happy Mother's Day!
