mother dear, i love you so

[Satan] knows that those who rock the cradle can rock his earthly empire. And he knows that without righteous mothers loving and leading the next generation, the kingdom of God will fail.
-Sheri L Dew

No doubt it's a tough job. And she's the toughest.

People told her she was crazy, irresponsible, etc. But she did it anyway because she knew that's what she was supposed to do. She gives so much to her children (and grandchildren), to her husband, and especially to the Lord. She is frugal, funny, clever, brilliant, a spiritual giant, and a wonderful mother. I love her so much.

Thanks, Mom, for giving us everything.

And to Jeffree's mom - well, anyone who can raise a perfect child must be astonishingly good at what she does. She's serving a mission right now and still managed to crochet Ember a baby blanket. She has served on almost every committee in her community and never stops working. And you should see her food storage.

Thanks, Ma, for giving so much to the world. And for giving me your son.

Happy Mother's Day to every woman in the world, because we are all mothers.

  1. Such a cute tribute to very cute moms! Your mom is such a darling lady; Grandma Shirley is too! Hope you had a good Mother's Day with little Ember :)
