When I look into the mirror...

...these days, I see more and more of my mom... and I love what I see. Happy Mother's Day, to my sweet mom. I adore being your daughter!

The following I received in an email this week, and I thought I'd share it here. This is my prayer as a mama to my two sweet boys:

Despite my many mistakes, perhaps my children will some day arise and call me blessed. The next time you need encouragement, let God whisper to your heart: "I hear when you pray for your children, and I'm there when you teach them about who I am. I watch you love, care, and sacrifice for them. You're not perfect, but hang in there. You're doing better than you think."

Dear Lord, help me to be the mother my children deserve. Encourage my heart when I feel like a failure. Erase my errors from the hearts and minds of my children. Instead, help them to see Jesus in me, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
