My mom is hilarious. But mostly unintentionally! She is an energetic, Sicilian, from Brooklyn who loves Jesus. And just about everything she does and says is colored by those factors. When I told her I was going on the rode to make a fortune with a stand up act solely focused on her infamous quotes, she asked me to wait till she was gone. I even came up with a hashtag #thingsmymomsays. Truth be told, she loves my jokes, and hearing her hearty laugh is my favorite part of teasing her. However, as the Lord would have it, the first time I ever got on a stage to talk about my mom, it was to sing a song about how awesome she is. This mother’s day, and every day, I am thankful for a mom that stayed so close to God, so filled with His Word that she always knew when I needed her the most. From childhood to having my own children, she has loved and supported me in just the right ways at just the right times. I pray that I can be that mom for my children, staying close to God so that I can be there for them in just the right way too. Listen to her song, and share. Let’s be there for each other and honor those that have given so much to be there for us!
