There are so many qualities that make a mom special. They love unconditionally. They serve tirelessly. They teach us how to do everything in life from talking to crawling to walking to reading to cooking to cleaning to driving. They help us mend our hearts when they're broken. They help us understand that love is about giving not taking.
They spend time on their knees praying for strength and wisdom to do this mom thing well. I was blessed with a praying mom. I remember seeing her many mornings at the breakfast table with her Bible open asking God to help her through another day. I am thankful that she spent so many years praying for me. She prayed for me during the good times and the rebellious times.
Her steadfast prayer and love for me were such a great example of what a mom can do through all the seasons of motherhood. I learned that anytime there is a need or a worry or a fear or a disappointment, you gotta take it to God. He hears the cries of a mother's heart when she is praying for victory in the life of her children.
So mom, I thank you for praying for me, especially during those times in my life when I didn't think I needed to listen to you or God or anyone else. Thank you for continuing to pray for me as I pray for strength to raise my own children. My hope is that they will one day understand the blessing of praying moms, aunts and grandmas.
This video is just a small way of saying Thank You for being a big part of that blessing in my life.
