I remember one junior high conversation when I said, “Mom, it would be so sad if I died now, after all the money you spent on me!” I remember because it brought tears to your eyes and you told me something about it not being about the money. You weren’t counting the pennies and racking up how much I would owe you. That was so hard to understand at the time!
Thank you for being a godly example, for treating others with kindness when they weren’t kind to you. Thank you for not gossiping about people even when I knew they were gossiping about you. Thank you for letting the little things go and not holding a grudge. Thank you for reading your Bible every night. All of these things and more shaped my life! You are blessed! Happy Mother’s Day. I love you, Mom!
