September 3rd is a very special day in the McDonald household. Upon that day, my Mother was born. The love and gratitude that we have for her, she will most likely never know. The time she sets aside for us to do the things we want, the way she goes out of her way to make sure everybody is comfortable, the example that she gives us each day is very appreciated. And though we fail to mention our love and thankfulness as often as we should, her love never diminishes, but grows stronger and deeper as the years go by. (As we were out of town for her birthday and without internet connection, this post is just now being published.)

My heart overflows with joy,

And many things beside

Whenever thoughts of Mother

Enter into my mind.

I am extremely thankful,

For the Mother God did give

To train me for His kingdom

And for His glory live.

She taught me how to cook,

And help with little ones,

Read to them from Scripture

Lay them down with the setting sun.

I honor and respect her,

My heroine she is,

I want to follow in her footsteps

As she follows after His.

I love you, Mother.
