Thoughts on Mother's Day
For my children: You make this day special for me. Without your presence in my life, there would be a whole dimension missing. I don't think I'd have learned the sweetness of sacrifice, the pangs that can accompany joy, or the elation that can come with small steps forward without you. Most importantly, you have expanded my understanding of God's love as I've been amazed at the depth of joy I have in your growth and in your delighting in beauty and the good gifts of life. Often I think, "If I feel this so intensely, how much more must God delight over His children." I think you've made me a better child.
Thank you! I love each of you with all my heart.
