Mother's day is only a few hours away where my mother is right now. She will wake up in a tiny apartment with my dad showing his sweet appreciation for the wife and mother she is and has always been. How blessed we are! Memories fill the walls with pictures of the growing generations, the computer screen keeps her in tune with the daily ups and downs of her offspring's lives, and the phone close by is a constant reminder that we are only phone call away.
My mother is amazing... I'm sure I didn't always say that as a teenager, but I know I believed it even then. As a Nana, she can't be beat. The patience to teach my girls how to sew, the support she and my dad have shown by coming to every recital possible (even over Skype), the tea parties, the walks, the list could go on...
But what I love the most is the legacy she's given to my sisters and me, and to our children. Her greatest desire is for us all to know her Lord and redeemer who (as she would say) pulled her up out of life destined for destruction. She is constantly pointing my girls to Jesus. For this, I will be eternally grateful.
Even though, you're on the other side of the world, "Happy Mother's Day, Mama!" Thank you for being the most amazing example of what a godly wife and mother looks like!
