Two moms I am most thankful for

12 May

Today is Mother’s Day 2013, and I wanted to use a post on the blog to mention two very special mothers in my life today. Here is their picture at our last family Christmas celebration…

On the left is my mother, Janice Corbin. I am very blessed to have had a good mother who loved me and, most of all, taught me to love the Lord and His Word. In addition to those big things, she taught me countless “little things” that still shape me even to this day.  It’s a joy to me to see her enjoying my sons.  In fact, if you look closely at this picture, you will see Daniel opening Christmas presents next her. I almost cropped him out of this picture, but decided to leave him in because that captures my mom well. She’s actually holding one of Daniel’s Christmas presents. She’s a giver. She gave so much to me over the years and now she is giving to my boys.  Mom, I love you and thank the Lord for you on this day!

The other lady in this picture is my beautiful wife, Becky.  She is the love of my life and the mother of our two boys.  The sacrifices she makes for me and our boys are incalculable. In watching all that she does for our sons, I have a better appreciation of all my mother did for me. She is not a sports fan, but she certainly spends a good portion of her life at ball games because our sons are playing. In fact, she’s even been known to get excited at a few of them!  Thank you, Becky, for being a great wife and mother. I love you and thank the Lord for you on this day!
