"I'll Be" by Reba McEntire

I chose this song today for my Mom. Friday is her birthday. This is a song that we've shared through the years.

I've always known through the years that I could call on my Mom anytime, and she'd be there for me. This was true as a child and remained true through my years away at college and then as I became a wife and a teacher and eventually a Mom myself. She is the one I want to call to share any news good or bad. I know she'll be there for me and my family.

My Mom had plans to come spend a couple days with Caleb this week since it is spring break week for both of them. She arrived to a sick little boy though so the plans for fun changed to no plans. Rather she ended up sitting on the couch, encouraging him to take lots of drinks of water, comforting him through the night as he was restless in his sleep, and holding him at the doctor while he got a shot (cause this Mommy is not very brave about such things). (Caleb has pneumonia in his left lung, keep him in your prayers.) I'm thankful for her being there for us so many times.

Happy birthday, Mom. I love you!

Have a day of blessings!

I am fortunate enough to have a similar relationship with my mother, Bethany! It is such a special blessing, isn't it?

Happy Birthday to your Mom! Hope Caleb is beginning to feel better!
