Being here in corpus this past week has really opened my eyes to the character of people. It has also made me realize how much the love of a mother means. My mom and I had many strained years as most moms do with their teenaged daughters. But as I have held my mom and just let her cry, memories flood back to her doing the same for me, even during the rockiest of years. My mom wasn't perfect, who is? But she has always been the one I ran to when my heart was breaking. Though my heart is breaking now, I'm not running to her, but to Christ for comfort. But I am so glad that I can be a physical source of love and support for her right now. It's the least I can do after all she's done for me.
