Heather is that kind of mommy.
Mommies love their babies before they are born. They believe their baby's life has value. They pray for healing. Mommies also love their babies that leave early to be with Jesus. They praise Jesus even in huge storms.
Crystal is that kind of mommy.
Mommies lay in bed for weeks at a time if it means their baby will be safe. They wait patiently for just the right time. They take their medicine and endure feeling sick because they care more for their child's health than their own feelings.
Mary Beth is that kind of mommy.
Mommies raise sons that grow to be loving, gentle, selfless husbands. They accept new people into their family. They love unconditionally. They work hard.
Lynne Trevett, my mother-in-law, is that kind of mommy.
Mommies affirm their children with words. They serve without being asked. They tell really dorky jokes because they know it will bring a smile. They hug their children when it hurts or when it's been a bad day. They call just to chat.
Rita Parker, my mother, is that kind of mommy.
Happy Mother's Day!
