Get Real on Mother's Day.

One of my mom's favorite sayings to me was, "Get real."  She was big on teaching me to be realistic, and not to expect a free ride.  My mom wanted to be sure I knew that I would have to work for the things I wanted.  Rarely does a day go by that I do not thank God for giving me-entrusting me, you could say-to my mom.  That was something she told me often, too-that I was not really hers, but that God had just entrusted her with me.  Every year at this time, I miss my mom-especially as I see all kinds of people buying cards and bunches of flowers for their moms-, but I instead celebrate God's goodness to me in choosing the very  best mom for me.  It is a day to reflect on His perfect sovereignty and lovingkindness towards me.
