Special Mother

On this Mother's Day eve I want to share with you about a very special Mother. She is the other mother in my children's life. Her name is Michelle Cheney. She is a wonderful Christian mother who has shared the roll of mother with me for many years. It has not always been easy, in the early years I didn't think anyone could take care of my kids the way I could and they sure didn't need a mother because they already had one. She was young and didn't have children of her own so how could she think she could care for mine. As the years passed God worked through us both to fulfill his purpose in the kids lives. She has given her life to love and care for our family. I say our family because when you share children you will always be family, not the traditional family but family none the less. I am often encouraged by her faith and the way that she shares it. My prayer today is the our kids will always love her and honor her as their mother. She may not have birthed them but she has had to endure lots of pain through the years. So my salute today is to Michelle Cheney the best other Mother I know. I am honored to share this job with her. Happy Mother's Day!
