So to all the beautiful and amazing mothers in my life- thank you for shining a light into the often overwhelming world of being a mom, and for just being able to relate to what I'm going through! But thanks especially to my Mom and Pat, for for sharing from their years of experience and dedication!
Mom-thank you for showing me Jesus, for extending grace for me to be myself, for your years of sacrifice, for always thinking I was the smartest, sweetest, prettiest, etc. unfailingly, for being honest about your own mistakes so I wouldn't have to make them, and for loving me like only a mother can! I love you back!
Pat- Thank you for accepting me and loving me as a daughter, for raising your son to be such an awesome person who loves the Lord and loves people, and for exemplifying graciousness and selflessness. I love you very much and am so grateful to call you my mother-in-law!
This Thanksgiving- I am thankful for YOU!
