Happy Mother’s Day to all those mommas in my life, starting of course with my own mother. I’m so thankful for all she has done for me-even when I wasn’t the easiest child to parent. She always encouraged me to be a better mother than she had been. Even though she was a very good mom, she recognized her shortcomings. She understood the struggle of raising several children and always tried to help me and my siblings by being the grandmother that loved to be on the floor playing with all the kids. She was also known as the baby whisperer. I’m proud to say I have learned that skill, as well. 😋
I am so honored to be called Mom by 7 people, amazingly that includes my 43 year old first born who has only known me for 3 years. I am so blessed.
I can’t help but see the story of Ruth when I look at how God has not only given His Son for my salvation me but also has restored my brokenness. He is my provider and my great Kinsman Redeemer.
