“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
Jamie and I are blessed to each have a mother who demonstrated this kind of love. We were both raised by a mother who unconditionally loved us, supported our dreams and ambitions, and dedicated their lives to making sure we had the tools we needed to achieve greatness. We couldn’t ask for better cheerleaders, greater protectors or wiser women to look up to. So much of who we are today is because of the talent, heart, character, sacrifices, encouragement and the steadfast love each of these ladies raised us with.
Today on Mother’s Day, I just want to stop for a minute and say thank you to these two women.
