Mothers Day = Stomach Flu Flower Text

Happy Mothers Day to all of you mom's and grandma's!!

God had an interesting way this year of reminding me of how blessed I am to have my mom. Nicky got the stomach flu today...full on with dry heaves. It reminded me of all of the times I was sick growing up and how my mom was at my side holding my hair for every violent heave. I was a particularly needy stomach flu sufferer needing my mom there every time, I remember screaming like crazy for her. I knew she would be and I could count on her. She was a fantastic mom and taught me how to be a great mom to my kids.

My heart is breaking thinking of all of the kids in the world without mom's there for them when they are sick. Also for the mom's who can't be there for their kids, knowing they will be sick and need their comforting.

A great friend (who happens to be my personal trainer) reminded me this week that kids without parents are never alone, Jesus is there for them, they never feel lonely. We wondered at what age kids stopped hearing Jesus and feel comforted by him?

I am not alone, because the Father is with me. John 16:32

My goal as a mother: To follow the Lord's direction and provide as many children as He sees fit a safe, loving, and God-fearing home.
