A Very Special Mother’s Day

Today, as most people did, we celebrated Mother’s Day. We also celebrated three birthdays. Naomi was 15 last Wednesday, Nikki (our cousin who lives with us) was 19 yesterday and Anna will be 14 this next week. It was so very special to share this celebration with them.

Here are the words to the Mother’s Day card the kids gave me:

You’ve always known me better
than I thought anyone could.
You’ve always given me
exactly what I needed,
whether it was love, advice, help or time.
Thanks for taking
such good care of me.
I love you.
Happy Mother’s Day.

This card was signed by all of the kids and chosen by the child who joined our family the most recently. She even chose my favorite color when she picked this card. This is a child who did not have a real mother who loved her until the age of 14. I have the privilege of being that mother.

From the ones I birthed to the one we most recently adopted, I am so humbled and thankful for these blessings. I am not at all worthy for the minsitry God has chosen me for, but I am so thankful He has equipped me for the task. I fail daily, yet He is my strength.




  1. You do such a good job of being mother. Bob told the kids before thanks was given that you were the example of the woman in Proverbs 31 that was the text for Paul’s sermon the morning and if they wanted to be like that woman they should watch you and learn from your example. I think he was right on.

  2. ***tears pouring***

  3. mine, too
