November 13: Sparkle in Mom’s eyes


To see my mom smile with a twinkle in her eye, to enjoy small pleasures like table games, at 94, brings me great joy. Considering all her generation has endured, all they’ve lost and how they continue to enrich our lives, makes me just a little proud of that courage and tenacity. Truly, “Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children” (Proverbs 17:6, NIV).”

I thank God for my mother’s smile and the sparkle in her eye.
