Mother's Day

A blessed Mother's Day to all our mothers! We literally could not exist without you, and you are a vital part of life from conception on. All of us kids are extraordinarily grateful for our mother - she is an extremely talented logistics manager, chauffeur, business agent, social activity planner, hospitality officiant and much more. She has given up so much for us, and it will take a lifetime to thank her for it! Her godly example of strong faith inspires us as her children to rise up and call her blessed and to follow in her footsteps. May her legacy live on!

Watch this great video about Mom's Hands:

Also watch another wonderful video here about mothers.
