An Open Mother's Day Letter

I remember my mother's prayers
and they have always followed me.
They have clung to me all my life.
-Abraham Lincoln

On this Mother's Day, I want to thank you, Mom, for several things. I want you to know I appreciate your encouragement... your patience... and your love... as I've become the woman I am. Your talent, insight, and support has been my anchor. How can I ever thank you?

But most of all, Mom, I'm grateful for your prayers. I'm thankful for all hopes, dreams and worries you've laid at the feet of God on my behalf these past 28 years. We know He's heard. Surely God treasures a mother's prayers unlike any other.

I love you, Mom. I'm happy to be your daughter. There's Vanilla Cheesecake Torte and Bubble Bath Roses waiting for you here...

See you soon!
Love, Brin

What a sweet tribute to your mom, Brin! I know all about a praying mama too...mine has been praying for me all my life & I feel those prayers all the time. Moms deserve to have their own special day.
