On this Mother’s Day, I thought it fitting to honor two women in my life who have helped me become who I am: my mother and my wife.
I found this quote online from Jessica Lange:
“The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.”
I would take this one step further because what I see in the lives and beings of both of these women is not just unselfishness, but total sacrifice. A willingness to lay down their own interests, their own needs, and even their own feelings for the sake of their children.
God blessed me to be born to a woman who was willing to do that for me and God blessed me to pair me with a wife who would do that for my children. I’m a better dad and man of God because of these two women.
Mom, I love you!
Sweetheart, you’re the best!
