I spend much of my day trying to be the mom many of you already think I am. In some ways that is exhausting. In other ways…it is energizing.
When I feel down, when I feel tired, when I feel discouraged…I sometimes give God an earful, but I also think of the many of you who are watching, waiting, eagerly seeking updates on the boys, praying fervently, and wishing you could lend a hand. I know if you were here, you would do more. So when I am done and depleted, I try to suck it up and dig a little deeper for you. You are my inner voice. You are my second wind. You are the wind beneath…well, you get the point.
So in my own awkwardly worded way…thanks for helping me be a better mom.
Thanks for “mom”ing right along with me. Thanks for helping me keep going. Thanks for keeping our names in God’s ear. I’ve needed you more than I expected, and you’ve delivered more than you know.
Happy mother’s day!
And Happy Mother’s Day to you! You deserve a wondedful day.

Happy Mothers Day to an amazing mother, your strength keeps me going. I look forward to every post, every picture and I know God has his hand on your shoulder helping you along each day!!!
Happy Mother’s Day to you. You have encouraged and inspired me with your writings and throughout your sincere journey with your boys. Although we do not know each other, somehow I feel we’ve known each for a long time. You have touched my life and make me desire to be a better person, wife and mother. Thank you!

I don’t even know you, yet I refer to you and your family many times. I pray for your strength, courage, and example. I have read your blog since the twins were born. I don’t even know how I learned about it, but glad I did. I am so glad you are painfully honest and so willing to share your family. They are beautiful and you are so real, and that has helped me be more honest with myself and others. Thank you.

God’s plan is wonderful. In blessing others – we too are blessed. Just as you gain strength and encouragement from our far away prayers, I gain strength and encouragement from your commitment to God and to your family. Happy Mother’s Day!
Happy Belated Mother’s Day!! It isn’t always easy to keep your head up when the struggles involve your children. But knowing you have prayerful people supporting you is always helpful! It is for me at least. Blessings to you and your family.
