Happy Mother's Day


First to my mother, Jan Miller. Even though we are not together today, you're close in my heart. Thank you for your love and sacrifice and for your mothering that shaped my life. Every late night snack, every kissed skinned knee, every load of clean laundry, every lullaby sung, every prayer prayed and tear cried - thank you for everything. I realize more every day how blessed I am to have you for my mother. Your positive attitude and commitment to God and your family have influenced my life more than I can tell you. I wish you a happy Mother's Day. I love you, Mama.



Also to my mother-in-law, Janet Sankey. Many miles separate us, but then you understand that, don't you? You spent many Mother's Days away from your mother, far away on a mission field. You're close in my heart today. You have mothered the most wonderful man to be my husband - I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you for giving me your son for these almost 15 years. Your generous and loving spirit have been a wonderful example to me and I wish for you a happy Mother's Day. I love you, Mom.

Oh Melodie.... that is beautiful. I don't even have a picture to post on my thread of my own Mother. You are such a thoughtful person. Thank you for the e-card you sent me today. You are a beautiful Mother as well. Your children are always clean and dressed wonderfully. You are patient and kind and a great example to all of us! I love you! Vonnie

Melodie, that post was sweet. I know both of your Mothers, and they are sweet ladies. And you are a sweet lady and a good Mother too. =) I was just thinking this morning, that I would not be able to make it, or would not be as happy if we did not have our children on the mission field with us. They bring so much joy to our lives, help out in the ministry too...and help us not miss our family and friends and our GREAT AMERICAN CULTURE as much. Have a wonderful day...
Love, Heather =)

Melodie, I just got done listening/watching your Mother speak for Mother's Day at Hobe Sound while I cleaned around my kitchen. I don't think I have ever met her but her voice is so kind sounding that I just know I would love her. She did an awesome job and gave me a new boost on my apprectiation level for the stage of Mothering that I'm in. It has truely inspired me to be and do better :) Please thank her for me.
Love, Martha
