Every since I met you, you’ve always loved kids.
Way before we got married, you’ve looked forward to becoming a mom.
And the way you’ve turned out to be was way beyond I ever saw or imagined.
Sacrifice. Love. Compassion. Fun. Insane. Thoughtful. Amazing.
I thank God everyday… EVERY DAY.
This past Tuesday, May 6, Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder was named Most Valuable Player of the National Basketball Association.
His speech was delivered with transparency, candidness and raw emotion.
Part of his speech included honoring his mom.
“We weren’t supposed to be here. You made us believe,” Durant told his mother.
“You kept us off the street. You put clothes on our backs. You put food on the table.
When you didn’t eat, you made sure we ate and [you] went to sleep hungry.
“You sacrificed for us. You’re the real MVP.”
I believe what KD said articulate how we all feel towards our moms.
She homeschools our kids.
She makes sure the homefront is well kept and is a refuge for all of us.
She masterfully crafts activities for the whole family.
She magically makes “owies” into tender moments.
She turns scary episodes into humorous turn of events.
She’s able to make boring situations into entertaining ones.
