The longer I live, the more I appreciate the role that mothers play in this world.
No matter how hard I try, if it comes down to me or Kelly, Kaelyn is going to want her mommy. There's a certain nurturing aspect that I will never obtain that is inherent in mothers. It has to be a gift from God in exchange for the whole pregnancy/childbirth thing.
Mother's Day is always an excellent opportunity for me to reflect on the wonder mothers in my life:
My mother who is absolutely amazing and one of the most godly women I've ever known
My grandmothers who were nothing alike but who created the family structures from which I benefited.
My mother-in-law who is ceaselessly giving and constantly blesses our family even from far away.
My wife who is the perfect mother and example for our daughter who will one day [WAY in the future] be a mother herself.
To all the mothers in my life and all those reading, thanks for your most valuable ministry.
Happy Mother's Day!
