So I asked my family to submit Mom Memory’s as well. Not to be entered, but I was so moved by everyone’s submissions that I wanted to share it with my own Mom. Here is what my older sister sent in from Kentucky:
My memories of mom are too many to try to count. She has been our defender, our protector and our supporter and our cheerleader. She has doctored wounds and wiped away tears - Always quick with a hug and encouragement.
She lifts us up in prayer and is willing to trust God with our todays and our tomorrows.
She let us run off to the four corners making sure we understand we always have a place to return (which we all have at one time or another!!) We can always count on a wonderful meal and some good conversation. No one can deny she’s a regular gourmet!!
She let us take on the world standing on our own two feet, but is still always there to encourage us when it isn’t going well, share some wisdom when we’re making a wrong turn, or dust us off when we land on our butts- yet she also celebrates our victories more sincerely than anyone else.
I know moms love their kids, but God did an extra special job when he made ours.
Thank you for all of your love Mom, none of us would be where we are without it!
