Above is a picture of me and my adorable mother-in-law taken at Christmas. We share the same anniversary, June 1st. Actually we decided to get married on her 25th anniversary and have so many wonderful yearly memories surrounding this date. The best was when Jon and I celebrated our 25th anniversary and his parents celebrated their 50th in 2010. As a mother, Shirley was passionate about her role and invested deeply into her son’s life for which I am grateful as I am married to an incredible man.
The investment we make as mothers has the potential to impact generations to come.
Motherhood can be a lonely and exhausting journey so my dear friend Sally Clarkson has put together a beautiful and encouraging two-minute video, “One Mom Heart to Another.” This is such a needed message in our culture. Sally Clarkson writes: “Motherhood is not just about meeting basic needs. God crafted motherhood to give women the opportunity to be warriors of righteousness in the battle of life. Women are intelligent and spiritual creatures who are capable of transforming history through building godly generations. And yet, most of the young moms I know feel alone, untrained, weary and inadequate in this role because they have little or no support from their church, from older women, from their own mothers, and from the messages that have assaulted their hearts and minds.” ~ Sally Clarkson
