Happy Mother's Day!


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


How do I measure my success as a mother?  By the accomplishments of my children?  By their happiness in this world? 

May I be that mother that my mom was to me.  She prayed for me when I was lost. And I want to do the same for my children, until my last living day.  I will have no greater joy (or success, my words) than to hear that my children walk in truth (3 John 1:4).
