When I think of the moms that I know, I’m blown away at the love that abounds, at all the differences in mothering styles, at the children who have grown up so well under the care of these nurturers. I am thankful for my two moms, for the unconditional love and joy in life that they gifted me with.
I am so very fortunate to have a mom, still living, who loves the Lord with all her heart has been a mentor to me all my adult life.
I am thankful for so many others who have listened and cared over the years, be they younger or older, sister or friend, providing mothering to me. I am thankful for my two daughters-in-love, Kimia and Anna, for their whole hearted, fly in the face of anything that is not right for their children life attitudes, for the honor that blesses my heart every time I hear them call me “Mom” though I did not birth them. I am thankful for my sons, who made me a mom, who openly love their wives and me. Most of all I am thankful that these precious ones love the Lord and follow him.
