Phenomenal woman...."Why I love my Mom..."

I received this email from my sis-in law, Jang. When I read it, I literally cried. It is so true in my life!

Why I love my Mom...

Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired, and it's getting late. I think I'll go to bed." She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches, rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following everning, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning.

She then put some wet colothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the wash, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button. She picked up the game pieces left on the table and put the telephone book back into the drawer. She watered the plants, emptied a waste basket and and hung up a towel to dry, she yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom, she stopped by the desk and and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the field trip, and pulled a textbook hiding under the chair. She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped an envelop and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her purse. Mom then creamed her face, put on moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and trimmed her nails.

Dad called out, "I thought that you were going to bed". "I'm on my way," she said. She put some water into the dog's dish and put the cat outside and made sure the doors were locked. She looked in on each of the kids and turned out the bedside lamp, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks in the hamper and had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework.

In her own room, she set the alarm, laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her list of things to do for tomorrow. About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular, "I'm going to bed." And he did without another thought.

Anything extraordinary here?.... Wonder why women live longer? BECAUSE WE ARE STRONGER..... MADE FOR THE LONG HAUL.....!

Thank you for this child

Entry: January 3, 2001

Dear Lord, thank you that I am pregnant. Thank you that you have allowed us to have our fourth child. Thank you that you have plans for this child. Thank you that before the whole creation of the universe, you have called this child her name. She is created for heaven!
Thank you that even if I don’t fathom your plans and see your hand in this today, you have assured me in my heart that you will cradle us in your arms. This child is another reward from you. I will see her grow, I will see her turn into a blessed woman someday and I will remember this time, this very writing why I thanked you for bringing this child into our lives.
Lord, help me, teach me, show me. Lord, help me rear this child in your ways so that she may not depart from it.
Let me carry this child with rejoicing and dancing! I claim for your redemption from the curse – that I may have no complications, morning sickness or nausea. I claim the redemption of painless delivery. I claim the redemption of normal delivery, good health and abundant provision.
Thank you Lord that we will not lack less but have more. Thank you that you will surround us with people that you will use to encourage us, to support us, to pray for us, and to lighten the load for us.
Lord, I rejoice in you. I love you and I come before you with humility.
