Happy Mother's Day Mom and Mom in Love

When I think of my mom, I think of the following quote:

"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life." -- Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

Mom, I can't thank you enough for your prayers, for teaching me to pray and read my Bible and to never lose hope....I learned, by your example, that I can always trust in the Lord. I love you, and want to deeply thank you and Dad for loving the Lord and making Him the center of our home.

The Lord Blessed me also with a Mother-in-love who loves the Lord. I want to thank you so much for being such a great source of love and support. You have known me since I was just a 16 year old and have been there all along the way watching Brian and I grow and learn and fail and succeed...I know it's not easy being far away. Thank you so much for your love and prayers...and so much more. Happy Mother's Day!

God made a wonderful mother,

A mother who never grows old;

He made her smile of the sunshine,

And He moulded her heart of pure gold;

In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,

In her cheeks fair roses you see;

God made a wonderful mother,

And He gave that dear mother to me.

--Pat O'Reilly
