It is Mother’s Day so first off I wanted to say thank you to all those mothers out there who have raised strong children. You are the reason why we are the way we are. Your sacrifices and love have impacted our lives more than you’ll ever know or be able to understand.

Now sending a message to my mom. I just want to thank you for being such a strong woman. Raising two kids at the age of 18 is a really hard job to accomplish, but you did such a great job. Jessica and I have turned out to be, eh, pretty good and that is all because of you. Most people would see it as bad or irresponsible for you to be a teen mom but I couldn’t of asked for it any other way. I think that if you weren’t a teen mom everything would be different.  The way our bond is, the way we talk to each other, the way that we love each other would be completely different. We were able to grow up together, we were able to learn from your mistakes, we were just able to get a close relationship that I don’t think a lot of people would be able to get with their moms. And I am so grateful for that. 

I thank you so much for all the nights you had to work to help support our little family of three. I thank you for praying with us when we were little and having us make a prayers and praises list, to help show us that God does answer prayers. I thank you for making sure Jessica and I had the best life possible under the circumstances of what our life at the time was. I thank you for being such a strong woman in all times. I thank you for being a great role model, not just to me, but to so many other people in this world. I thank you for loving me unconditionally even when I am such a jerk. I thank you for being my hero.

Mom, you deserve the world and more and one day I will get you that. But this year, please just settle for the gift I got you (; I love you so much mom, and I am glad God made you the way he did. You are SO beautiful, SO kind, SO merciful, SO smart, SO strong, SO motivated and just SO you. I love you.

Proverbs 31:10-30


A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.


Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.


She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.


She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.


She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.


She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.


She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.


She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.


She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.


In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.


She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.


When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.


She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.


Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.


She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.


She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.


She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.


She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.


Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:


“Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”


Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

I hope all of you who do not have a mother due to circumstances spend this day to reflect on you, I pray that your hearts feel the love that a mother gives even if your isn’t there, you don’t have one, or anything. 

Have an amazing day to you mom’s and everyone else!
