Happy Birthday Mom

We drove around town today doing errands, our nails, and enjoying our favorite mexican chicken soup! On our way home we saw a woman hitchhiker carrying a heavy box along with some bags. My mom immediately asked me to turn around and help her. The funny thing is that I always see people on the side of the road that I wish to pick up or help, but never do. I’m usually convinced by my fear that I made the right choice. In our 5 minute drive to her home we both noticed that she was lonely, in pain, and afraid. We wished her blessings as we said good bye and then drove away with a new sense of gratitude.
I appreciate my mom for being brave. For not letting opportunities to help be unseen. For being strong through her pain and showing us hope in Christ. I love my mom. She is one of my heroes. I actually have moments where I pause and think, what would my mom do? haha you might not believe me, but she IS the best mom in the world 😉
