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).
