The Mom I Want To Be

Sarah Sumner:

My Mother’s love and protection shone so brightly on me that I could see God’s goodness through her.

I can truthfully say that every time I looked at her, she gave me another loving smile.

Year after year the warmth in her eyes would greet me anew in almost every passing glance that I had the privilege to receive.  She was always so glad to see me, even though she saw me every day.

I have countless childhood memories of looking up to find assurance from my mother’s gaze manufactured just for me over and over again.

“When they were discouraged, I smiled at them.  My look of approval was precious to them.” 

 – Job 29:24

Note:  Several year’s ago I printed this quote and have kept it in a journal or on the wall.  I don’t know where I got it from, but God bless the writer as it has been a challenge to me for quite some time.

    Wow – beautiful quote. Don’t we all want to be just like this for our children? It is such a challenge though. I hope I come even remotely close to this in my children’s eyes one day…
