My Wonderful Mother
Hey, I know Mother's Day was yesterday, but I had a busy weekend, O.K.? I was mowing and trimming the bushes and cooking and cleaning and doing laundry, and paying bills and, and, and, well, all you mom's out there know how it is. And anyway, I had my mom and dad and my mother-in-law out to our house for dinner last night so, like I said, I've been busy.
But I couldn't let Mother's Day go by without sharing with you what a wonderful mother I have. I could go on and on telling you about what a hard worker my mom is. How she raised three girls and owned a restaurant with my dad gone most of the time working on the railroad. I could tell you what a good cook she is. I could tell you what a good daughter she is, helping take care of her mother since my grandpa passed away many years ago.
But what my mom would most want you to know about her, is that she belongs to Jesus Christ. Of all my mother taught me, the most important thing was how to know Jesus. My mother is not perfect, and she would be the first to tell you that, but she has a heart to spread the gospel. She teaches a weekly Bible study, and has for years.
I am thankful that God sent me to be her daughter. She is wonderful and I am so proud to call her "mom." So, I say "I love you mom." Happy Mothers Day!
