Jubilee Project's latest video poses the question, "What would the world look like without moms?" I shudder at the thought! I love one answer given in the video: "No one would have clean underwear." Amen to that. :)

Today I thank God for the moms who have sacrificed, overcome obstacles, cared for, nurtured, prayed over, loved, and blessed their children and their families. This world is a better place because of you.
And I praise God, in particular, for my mom, her mom, and the mom who raised my husband.
For my mom - I'm thankful that you never gave up on us when that would have been the easiest think to do. Grateful that when it seemed like us against all the world, we had you in our corner. That when we packed up and moved yet again, we knew we'd have to say goodbyes but we could always count on having each other. I've been blessed by your endless prayers and encouraged by the faith that grips your heart. I admire you for so many reasons but am most thankful for your guidance and your friendship.
Happy Mother's Day to you beautiful ladies and to all the magnificent moms out there who give so much of yourselves for the sake of love. Thank God for all of you and for clean underwear!
