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!

What a glorious mother's day gift! Thank you. With the benefit of hindsight, I can truthfully say that, though I may have gotten some of it (parenting) right, I truly wish I had been a better mother. If I had it to do over, I would bathe every day in prayer and appreciate every moment more fully because, as cliche as it sounds, our children grow up so fast! Nevertheless, imperfect as my mothering may have been, one only need look at you to see that the result is an incredibly beautiful woman full of integrity and Christ-like character. The glory for that goes to the One who created you and drew you to Himself. You are created in His image and I thank Him every day that you know Him and seek to honor Him in your life. My own daughter is an inspiration to me! You are a precious gift and I look forward to the day when God blesses you with children of your own. You will be one awesome mother! LOVE YOU, Mom
