Or maybe, out of common ground, we were always destined to be close.
I think God gives you, if you'll have it, the advice and life experience of 2 mothers. One who fights for your side and one who fights for her son's. She will help you see the vulnerability in his choices, she will help you understand his upbringing and help you see life from a new perspective.
Sheila is one of those people that loves her family. And not just loves them a little... but they are her world, and her reason.
We are very much alike in that... both of us have small worlds.
She is a strong woman of God and she is soft in her guidance and advice.
She remembers the struggle of children close together in age and she is supportive and understanding of my efforts.
I never feel judgment and I always know she is there.
She has taught me so much...
Persevering. Serving. The Benefits of a Faithful Heart. and Willpower. She has taught me that "my way" is not always the best way... and when I listen, she knows so much. I am lucky to have her advice... blessed to have her discernment in my corner.
Sheila is someone I am proud to have in my life. Proud to call Mom and proud to learn from. And on this day, her birthday... I want her to know the gift she has been and continues to be.
Thank you for helping me, helping me live and live well... I love you.
