My mom is incredible. She raised 7 kids all by herself since my youngest sibling was only 2 years old! And despite having to work outside of the home and at times more than one job...you could always count on her. She relied on God and prayer every day and always let us know we were loved! And although there was little money and rarely extras she willingly sacrificed for her children and always put us first!
No politician or CEO or billionaire philanthropist does anything that is more important than what a mother does. There is no special trophy or award given a mother...but the eternal impact she can make is more important than anything else in this world.
I want you to remember, Mom, that although there were many days and nights that challenged your strength and tested your character, and at times it seemed the world worked overtime to minimize your calling...your role as a mother has always been beyond compare...its' importance grander than any other job or occupation.
I owe you more than I could ever truly repay, Mom...but I will continue to try each day to honor you by being the kind of mother that would make you proud!
I love You, Mom...more than you know...you're incredible
