My mom recently went through open-heart surgery and is now recuperating. For several days prior to and during the surgery, her hospital stay and now recuperation I was called on to put my life on hold and be there for her. I want her to know that it is an honor and privilege to do these things for her just as she has done so much for her children and grandchildren over the years.
For Mother’s Day, in addition to the nice dinner and flowers, I am giving her a letter similar to Greg Chesmore’s letter in latest printed MRL Newsletter. Maybe you would like to do something similar. The letter is available here on page four. http://www.missourilife.org/news/2015/mrl_news_april2015.pdf

“Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.” –Charles Stanley
