You’re Older but You’re Not Old

You’re Older but You’re not Old

I have this daily gratitude thing on Facebook and as I was completing my January entries tonight, I thought of placing this on my blog instead.

My mom celebrated her 60th birthday this year. We had a series of celebrations and reunions, and one of those was a simple surprise dinner where I had the privilege of sharing a few words to honor her. Sharing with you all some parts of my message.

What else can a daughter say to her mom, but thank you, sorry, and I love you?

We were recalling how I used to be just quiet and suplada, no word or even a smirk from me until after I gave my life to God and allowed Him to change me. I think because of that my family knows all the more that God is real and nothing is impossible for Him!

So tonight I’m thanking God for giving me to you. Now having a son I realize how God knows the perfect parent-child combination. We’re not perfect but you’re the perfect mom for me, and I believe I speak for the three of us. I am very grateful that Noah has you for his “grandma.” It will be even more perfect if we could leave Noah with you instead of at “school.” Hehe.

But there, I thank God for you. He knows your heart. Your best years are not behind you. You’re older but you’re not old. He is not yet done. He has so much in store for you. And I am excited for all the many more decades ahead!
