I want to wish my mom a Happy Mother’s Day. As with many, my mom has been important in my life. She took care of me, nurturing me as I grew up.
My mom married a pastor. An honorable profession, but one that can be difficult. She gave birth to three wonderful, little sinners (although I’m sure my brothers caused more trouble than I did). 🙂 Caring for a family of 5 on a limited budget was a burden she bore. She fought to meet our needs and often went without. She worked hard to make special occasions like birthdays and graduations extra special.
My mom trusted Jesus Christ as her Savior at a young age and has shared that with others including her children. I remember one time my mom prayed with me after breakfast that I would learn to know Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. I didn’t trust Christ that day, but the memory has stayed with me.
So on Mother’s Day this year, I want to publicly say, “Thank you, Mom. I love you. Happy Mother’s Day.”
