Yesterday, from state to state, from living room to living room, we celebrated our Mom's! It was a day of universal celebration, celebrating a common bond that we each have.

As I sat with my family in the packed out restaurant yesterday, I was thinking about how everyone in the restaurant had something in common. We were all there honoring the same thing ... our mother. As a mother, I realized that I was the same as many of the women in the restaurant. We all had the same name ... "MOM"!

Even though we were all the same, we were all different. We looked different, we acted different, we have different habits, different goals, different ideals. Different is good though, nobody would want to be exactly like me! The only person in the entire world that is exactly like you is ....YOU!

This makes us special - special to God, special to our family and special to our friends. The Bible says that we are made in "an amazing and wonderful way". So the next time you think you just might just be an average mom or woman of God, remember that God made ALL of the people in this world but He made only one YOU!

PSALM 139:14 "I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, wonderful are Thy works, and my soul knows it very well."

Your family may wish the BEST for you, but your Heavenly Father not only wants the BEST for you but He thinks you deserve the BEST! You are worth it because you are unique!
