The Blessings of Mom

Her children arise and call her blessed; - Proverbs 31:28

Mom, I love you more than you could ever know.

You have modeled perseverance, and determination to my life.

Just the two of us, you raised me brilliantly and never allowed your wheelchair to limit God’s plans for my life.

Thank you, for loving Jesus enough to share your only daughter and grandchildren with a country and people you have yet to see. And, for never making me feel guilty about leaving to share God’s heart in the nations.

We will dance together for eternity!

My hubby’s mom, thank you for opening your heart and life to me.

For your encouragement, love, and support of my role as wife and mommy, I am forever grateful.

For beach trips, garage sales, new toasters, and just being you.

My life will forever be blessed because of the gift you gave to me in your son.

I love you mom!

It is so obvious that the loved poured out by your Mother's is what you pour out daily into your family and missionary work!

What a blessing to be loved so deeply and to be able to now express that love in so many ways - where so many lives are being touched eternally!

Hugs and love - Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! Just wanted to stop by and thank you for joining in the friends at A Place Called Simplicity. And thank you for all the sweet comments you have left too.

Two new little ones? That's awesome!! We are having so much fun with Elizabeth and Elijah coming together. People always ask me if they are twins? Thrilled for you and can't wait to follow along! Hugs from Colorado!
