Thinking about Mother's Day
Can you ever really thank your mom for all that she has done for you over the years? They do so much for so little in return. As I think about this upcoming Mother's Day, I can't help but think about the people that I know that don't have there mother's still with them. As I watch Denise and Brennen interact with each other, there is something there that can never be replaced or duplicated by dad. The depth of there conversations, the bond that they have, and the trust in each other for safety and protection. It makes me realize why when you see star athletes interviewed on tv, you hear them say "hi mom" instead of "hi dad". O I am sure they love there dads too, but there is a certain bond that only a mom and a child can have.
I think about all the sacrifices that a mom must make for her children. And how giving they have to be and how they have to deny themselves of so much. To all the moms on this upcoming Mother's Day, thank you for being there, thank you for loving so unconditionally, thank you for being Mom. To Denise, thank you for being such an amazing mom to our son, you are molding him into a very passionate and Godly young man. And to mom, thank you so much mom for all you did and all that you continue to do for me, in prayer and in life.
