Bri's Prayer About "Mom"

Lord,
What makes a good person? Is it how many times a day they pray? Is it how long they wait to get married? Is it how they treat others? Or is it simply being a person who loves without limits? Honestly, I don't know if it is one, two, all or none of the above. What I do know is that I have lived 23 years in the presence of an angel, my mom. She has not fought in any war. She has never scored the winning run in a baseball game. She has never even been around the world. But to one person, me, she is extraordiniary. Just another person living, breathing, and trying to do things right. A simple girl working a 9 to 5 job with a kid who never really made it easy for her. I grew out of my terrible teens
and somehow I started to see her in a new light. Was is You who finally made me see? Or was it me who finally let down my guard so You could let me see? I believe it was You and I am nothing but thankful. She is the most amazing woman I have or will ever know. She does so much for me and people around her and yet asks for nothing in return. The simpliest things like making me finish my homework, kicking me outside to get some fresh air, or simply forcing me to get along with my cousins. I know now that she was only helping me grow and become a better person.
For that and so much more, I am forever grateful to her. There are so many things to be thankful for in this world, and our mothers are one of the most important! I thank God everyday, more times then I can count, for this remarkable woman that is blessed in my life. Words can not describe, although I try more and more each day. I write this to honor and thank the one person in life who has never given up on me! That person is, my mom!

Not everyone has a valentine on Valentine's day but, EVERYONE in this world has a mother!
