We had one of the most perfect days yesterday celebrating my best friend and amazing mom on her birthday! Behind the scenes she has walked through trials with more courage than I could ever imagine, she loves unconditionally, believes the impossible will happen, and is my biggest cheerleader and best friend, I am honored to call her mom. I love you so much. I am looking forward to all of the good things that God has in store for her this coming year.

Daily behind the scenes I get to witness this amazing and courageous woman thoughtfully and intentionally loving each person she comes in contact with. She doesn't hurry by people but truly stops and loves. She listens and encourages, has a faith that is inspiring, and has walked through more things than I could ever imagine still finding beauty each day. Thank you mommy for living the following quote in millions of ways behind the scenes for so many...

"And I could be sitting on the sidelines, in blissful ignorance of the brokenness that surrounds me, enjoying the whole-ness of a sweet and sheltered life. Missing out on the beauty of breaking off pieces of my heart and my life to make another whole. That's the beauty of a life of brokenness-by-decision: A shattered heart, seeping out the sacrifice of praise. A life cracked open and poured out in worship to Him. An invitation for God Himself to [work in love]."
