She was the fabric of our home. She set the tone for the rest of my life. She was my best friend. She was my Mom. The most influential part of my life’s story was the love I received in my home growing up. It became the cornerstone to what I strived for as I was raising my own family many years later. This story is not unique, but the sweetest blessing from God to women who are raising their families, a true calling…motherhood. It is not always easy but the rewards far outweigh the sleepless nights. An exceptional quote written by President Abraham Lincoln states, “All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” A mother holds within her the many gifts she will need to help her children on their life’s course. God Bless our mothers and the many who are not mothers, but have made an inspiring difference for good in the lives of others.

Have a beautiful week!
