I am so blessed to have a wonderful mother. Words cannot describe my love for her or my thankfulness to God for her. She is a rare and precious jewel. Everyone who knows her, knows she has a sweet, friendly spirit. She loves all of her children and grandchildren with an unselfish love. She is tender, kind, and soft spoken. She rarely gets angry and is so full of mercy. She is always encouraging me in ways that even she don't know, whether in her words or her actions. She has stood by my father's side for 38 years, being the help-meet that God has called her to be. She is devoted to her calling and she wouldn't give it up for the world. She is everything I hope to be. She is blessed among women. I love you, Mom, so very much. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me!
