Mom! The sweet sound of your name echoing though my heart, Mom.
You were my first miracle, my very first gift from above and you’ve given me 32 amazing years. From a very young age, you thought us that ‘two are better than one.’ You stressed the importance of togetherness and you stood your grounds even after you lost a child, my only sister. Yes, Mom, ‘two are better than one.’
“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.” – Ecclesiastes 4:9 (KJV)
Mother. Oh! Mother. Today my heart rejoices with you.
Having a Mother like you is, without a doubt, one of the utmost gifts and prime advantages the Lord has given me. The confidence and values that you instilled in me made me who I am today. For that and much more, I can’t thank you enough. Every day that goes by is a gift from God to cherish and I am thankful to have you around.
I didn’t have to become a Mother to understand how difficult being a Mother is because from the moment I learned to walk; I was by your side every step of the way. You made so many sacrifices to raise us, especially me. Every now and then I still wonder how you managed to hold both ends on your own. You give so much, constantly. You are such a transparent person and your heart overflows with Love, Faithfulness and Compassion.
We pray for you ceaselessly. You are a good role model, a Phenomenal Woman. You’re irreplaceable and we are blessed to have you in our lives. Every day brings with it an opportunity to do and try something new; an opportunity to live, to love, to share, to reach out to someone else, to forgive, to move on and to count our blessings. I love new beginnings and I know you do to. I hope you find that which you seek.
Wishing you a peaceful day full of laughter, blessings and many, many more great years.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
