The little things

Public props to my mom, who (according to my occasionally faulty memory) became the first woman in seven years to express her love for me through a valentine.

It was probably the most meaningful thing someone has done for me in recent memory–so much so that I’m committing now to showering my future daughter(s) with such endless expressions of adoration that they’ll never feel the need to go searching elsewhere for approval, acceptance and/or love. Knowing your parents think you’re great goes a long, long ways.

So… thanks, Mom. Thank you for reminding me of your love for me. And thank you for standing in the gap for the mystery woman of my future :)

You are welcome, Joel. I dearly love all my children and grandchildren. Your father and I are thankful for the wonderful family God has blessed us with and are in awe at how He is at work in each one of them. He is an awesome God! I count it a priviledge to come before HIs throne on behalf of each one of you.
