When God gives good gifts some come in great numbers and some are so precious there is only ONE. So far, God has given me approximately 9 ,125 sunrises and more exciting , magical moments than I can possibly remember. But I have only ONE mother. Put in poetic words...
Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.
I love that she let us have chickens, ducks and bunnies when we were kids.
I love how she would lay her cool hand on my forehead when I was feeling sick.
I love how she read me stories of missionaries and took me to South America to experience service.
I love that she can fix toilets, wire plug-ins, hang sheet-rock and anything you could possibly think of! (Her best kept secret...She is Superwoman!)
I love that she reminds me to pray when I lose my keys or am struggling to make a big life decision.
I love how she sings "The Joy Of The Lord Is My Strength" to herself when she's having a hard day.
I love that she thinks I'm funny and laughs at the silly details of life.
I love that her favorite place to be is the woods with binoculars around her neck and a bird book within reach.
I love that she is the best road-trip buddy I've ever found - always up for the "road-less-traveled" kind of adventure.
...I love so many things about her!
Here is the best part! Her love is unconditional! She dealt with my annoying childish habits, nursed me through several bouts of stomach flu and has seen me make a fool of myself on more than one occasion. Still, she loves me. There is no question. I'm the blessed one. Proverbs 31:28
