Today is Mother’s Day! What a wonderful gift mothers are! They keep us safe and fed, and they give us rides, encouragement, and so much more.
Today I want to talk about two women I look up to in my life. I am not going to talk about my mom because she out shines them all, and plus it wouldn’t be fair to the other two women I want to talk about. Mom, if you are reading this I hope you know how much I love you and hope to have your giving heart when I am older!
The first woman I’m going to talk about is my grandma “Be Be.” I know it’s a funny name but it’s just what we call her. I admire her so much because she is hardworking, loving, a great hostess, and just a wonderful woman God has created. One thing I love about her is how she loves her family unconditionally. She is always willing to go the extra mile for you. She moved to another state just so she could be with my cousins’ family.
When we are at her house, she always makes sure everything is just perfect for us. From cleaning the the bedrooms to making sure there are cookies waiting for us when we get there. She is one of those people who makes you feel loved. Grandma “Be Be,” thank you for inspiring me to want to be just as great a grandma as you are when I get older (Matthew 25:40).
The second woman I want to talk about is my “older sister,” Jami. Jami is a very good friend to my family, hence why we call her our “older sister.” She is married to my “brother-in-law” Graham. Jami also has a daughter who is almost one! I look up to Jami because she never lets a bad situation steal her joy. She always finds a reason to laugh and smile. Jami picks up her head and keeps going. She also is so much fun to talk to and hang out with. She is one of those people who is full of wisdom.
Thank you, Jami, for being a great example of a Godly woman. Thank you for always being willing to give me advice on certain subjects and for being a great “big sister” (1 Timothy 3:11).
I want to end by saying Happy Mothers day to all the beautiful mothers out there! You all are beautiful and amazing. God knew what He was doing when He put you on this earth. Keep on shining your lights for God and magnifying Him in every way (2 Peter 1:12-15).
P.S. Leave a comment below of one woman you are thankful for!
