I'm Rich

I just read what my mom wrote on my last entry, and it made me think of a quote from Abraham Lincoln, "No man is poor who has had a godly mother.  Just wanted to praise the Lord for my mother who not only cared for us children physically but also nurtured us spiritually.  My mom is indispensable!  I think when God made mothers he made something of royalty, something like nobility and Kings and Queens come to mind.  I feel like I could write for days on this subject but I'm at work and I better get back to work.

Amen to that!!! Derek, you and mom are both are making me cry. There really is no other woman in the world who even remotely compares to our mom. She's sacrificed all of her life for us. She has made us who and what we are today. I owe her everything that I am to her. I praise God for giving me the best gift in the world by giving me my mom. I love you, MOM!!!!!!!!!!
