My mother is staying with me for a while so she can go to Cleveland Clinic. Today is her birthday.
Yesterday I had a few friends over for supper. We laughed and talked, read silly cards and told stories of our lives. Looking around the room at smiling faces and knowing that each of us had been impacted by mother, I had a warm feeling.
A joy of a life well lived. A contentment that life just doesn't get better than this. A knowledge that all of our lives are better because we had shared them together.
Love. Love and family commitment is the greatest gift God can give.
Hug your loved ones. Celebrate your lives together. Understand a little more about God's love by seeing Him in those around you.
