“”Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.”
Exodus 20:12 ESV
March 12 is my mother’s birthday. Today I honor her in Heaven for sacrificing so much for me and for loving me enough to make me fiercely independent. There are so many precious memories, but one stands out above all other. My older brother died of melanoma at age 24 just 3 weeks before Christmas and my mother, along with my father, made sure that Christmas was extra special for everyone else. That kind of courage and love defined my mother and I am indeed thankful.
