I love my mom because of her courage and strength, her unconditional love and service to all she knew. I love her because she taught me to notice the sunset, wildflowers or the smell of the breeze. I love her for her laughter, that I hear within my own, her smile, her voice, her twinkling eyes, her calmness and her excitement. I love her because she served me my whole life till I was able to return the favor for the last few months of her life. I love her for her legacy- a legacy of love, a legacy of kindness, a legacy of testimony, a legacy of building, a legacy of hope.
Kati is my neighborhood friend who is training to run a marathon, bakes bread, raises 3 sons, laughs really hard, loves the Lord, and makes me want to be a better person. Thanks, Kati for sharing your mom with us!
