For my 25th birthday, my mom gave me the best present that anyone has ever gotten me. She had compiled a photo album of my life from the day I was born until my quarter century mark. My first steps, first day of kindergarten, childhood slumber parties, family trips, sporting events, college graduation…it was all there.
She also included a card from her and my dad where they both told me how proud they were of me and that they loved me. What an amazing memento that I can share with my own family some day. I started crying when it sank in just how much time, devotion and sacrifice it took for her to make this thoughtful, selfless gift.
Who works on a present for someone for that long?
A mother…there is no greater love in the world than a mother’s love.
