So, Mom, this one is for you.
Thank you for being the woman God created you to be. Thank you for being honest, for being compassionate, for being driven, for loving Christ, for spending your life for the sake of His kingdom. Thank you, Mom, for living according to the standards you taught me, for being an example, for showing me what it means to be a Godly woman and wife. Thank you for reminding me that God is enough, and that when the whole world seems to be falling down around me that I am still not alone, because the Lord is right there with me. Thank you for teaching me that the Lord has a plan and a purpose for every single aspect of my life, and that His plan might not look normal to the rest of the world and that that is a good thing. Thank you for loving me unconditionally and for showing me how to love and serve others in Jesus' name. Thank you for the guidance you have given me and for the guidance you will give me in the months and years ahead. Thank you for the things you will teach me about being a Godly mother when we finally bring our little one home. Thank you for being the most incredible woman I know.
I love you, Mom. I love you more than I can possibly explain, and I am so grateful to God for saving you, for healing you. I think He knew that I still needed you here. There is still so much you have to teach me, and I cannot wait to learn. You truly are one of the greatest blessings that the Lord has ever given me.
Mothers are such a sweet gift from God, and I cannot wait to be a part of this noble group of women who work so hard to shape the lives of children.
