It dawned on me this week that too often we underestimate the power of Mom and overestimate the power of cheese. (I have no idea.) Anyway, my mom was here this last week from Texas, originally for the purpose of preparing us for Christy's surgery. However, because Christy's surgery was postponed, Mom just hung out with us, blessing us with food, cleaning, laundry, groceries, and her presence. She was truly a blessing to us when we were down in the dumps, frustrated by the postponements.
After being away from home for college and then Kentucky for 15 years now, apparently I had underestimated the awesomeness of Mom. This was the most time I had spent with her for at least 15 years and was reminded how great she really is.
I'm further updating my Mom Estimation after two boys in our community lost their mom to a tragedy. I'm thankful to God for an amazing Mom and pray that never again will I underestimate her Momness!
