Happy Mother's Day!

Because you're my mom, I grew up knowing Jesus.
Because you're my mom, I've always felt loved.

Because you're my mom, I have someone whose qualities I want to emulate, especially the grace and thoughtfulness and practicality and generosity and all-around-good-attitude we can all see in you.

Because you're my mom, I like chocolate and I like to chew my candy.

Because you're my mom, I am a morning person.

Because you're my mom, I have learned the power and necessity of prayer.

Because you're my mom, I like to sit in the sun and read.

Because you're my mom, I like to make birthdays and other holidays special.

Because you're my mom, I can care for Carson and Livi the way you care for me and Matt.

Because you're my mom, I get the good pleasure of looking like you.

Because you're my mom, and you've been a good example about this, I'm trying not to let my insecurities get in the way of friendships.

Because you're my mom, I love coming home.
Because you're my mom, I've been blessed beyond measure.

I love you, Mom!
