"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts."
Here's to my mom. When doctors said that delivery of a normal baby would be impossible and abortion would be the only way, mom refused to give up and found a doctor that would deliver. She was strong even in the midst of negativity all around her. I still remember mom working with me, a little 5 year old girl with a bad speech impairment, and ears that just didn't work like they were supposed to. She called them my "special ears."
She spent endless hours teaching me to say and form my words. She also taught me to sing, because she knew how badly I wanted to. Most importantly she taught me about Jesus. Her life was always an example of God's love.
Even now, I would consider mom my best friend. The one I can talk to about anything, the one who always understands me. I know she's always my biggest fan, my biggest supporter, my biggest prayer warrior.
