Happy Mother's Day

The grandmother-grandchild relationship is simple. Grandmas are short on criticism and long on love.

The greatest compliment anyone can give me, Mom, is to tell me I'm just like you.

There are two other very special women in my life. May has been mothering me long-distance for almost 19 years. Her letters and emails lift my spirits, encourage me, comfort me and remind me how blessed I am. She faithfully prays for me every day and rarely lets a day go by without telling me she loves me. The times I'm able to be in her presence are some of my most favorite moments.

A few years ago, my mom and grandma gave me a figurine along with a card which read: "Protect and cherish my girl, Father. Provide for her when I am not there to hold her."
God answered with the gift of my WA mom. She is part friend, part mentor, part mom...all love.
