It’s Not About Me

  I don’t remember feeling so sad on my birthday last year. I’ve already cried twice as I think of my mom whose life was cut too short. Today is not about me. I did nothing miraculous on this day when I was born. My mom sacrificed her well-being, peace, and comfort to bring me into this world, and I will ever be thankful for that. God bless the mothers who give tirelessly, without much reward. The Lord sees your sacrifice.

  1. My dear mother taught me so many things it would take pages to name all of them.
    Every time I find myself doing one of those things, it reminds me of her.
    Just yesterday I made mom’s special Strawberry Punch for my neighbors.
    They could not stop talking about how delicious it was.
    I smiled and looked toward heaven…..thank you mom.
