In Honor of My Mother

Over the years, our viewpoint of our moms change. The cool mom that we have as a preschooler morphs into the world’s most annoying woman during our teenage years. Then sometime into our adulthood, we wake up and realize just how amazingly wise and irreplaceable our mother really is. 

 

My mom is gone now, but I learned so much from her. The joy of laughter. The importance of silence. The significance of faith. 

 

As you remember your mom today, reminisce with me about mine. She was a great lady.

 

After all, 

 

Mother taught me about grace

 

Mother enlightened me about faith

 

Mother modeled the necessity of prayer

 

Mother instilled a love for the Word

 

Mother encouraged me to write

 

Mother showed me how to deal with mice

 

Like I said, Mother was just one great lady.
