Today I want to honor the “Moms” who step in.  This is a woman who may not have a child in her home, but still chooses to come alongside those who do.  This is an aunt, a best friend, a close neighbor, a woman from church, a close relative —a woman that chooses to lend a hand, an ear, emotional support, wisdom, a different perspective or simply a shoulder to lean on and an abundance of tissues to cry into when she knows another mom needs it.  She is the real MVP, because it is apparent, simply by the nature of her offering, that she does it out of pure love and compassion for a mother and her children.  I want you to know that YOU ARE ONE OF THE MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS because your involvement is not out of obligation, but participation, in one of the greatest callings known to man and for this you are deeply cherished.   Many women could not be the mothers that they are today without your sacrifice.  So today — on “Mother’s Day,” I choose to highlight you, the women who have given selflessly from a strength, I likely have never experienced, to be a light in someone else’s life.

““Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”  Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.  Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.” Proverbs 31:29-31 NIV
