Love ya Ma!




My Mom is the best. We are a lot alike in many ways so we stress each other out and make each other crazy and I think it’s because we love each other so much and want happiness and the best for each other. My Mom always emphasized God in our family and I remember the song she’d sing about “…if I should be a fireman when I grow up, I’ll be a Christian fireman when I grow up,” and at the time I kind of wanted to sing it “if I should be a gangsta when I grow up….” But now (especially since I’ve got my own kids) I really understand and appreciate that focus in life.
Now that she’s a Grand-Mother too, it’s neat to see how much more love she’s got even after I’ve drained it all out with my shinannagans (great word huh).
Anyway, it’s Mother’s day and I LOVE YOU MOM!!!

Awwww, John, you make a mom proud! Of course my favorite scripture in recent years has become III John 4. "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in truth."
