New York City - Among Savages
I am especially thankful for my mom this year. After a year of many ups and downs, she has been my steady rock these days. As I’ve transitioned to this new world of New York City and the Bowery Mission, she has not wavered or grown tired in listening to me process and cry and rejoice and question. She keeps pointing me to truth. Watching women who are coping with absent mothers and abusive mothers, or being that themselves, I am humbled at what God has provided me with in my family. I’m thankful that He is revealing to me the blessing of my family.
I wish I could be with her and my sisters today, but I’m thankful that the Lord has abundantly blessed me with my family, and that I can know they aren’t going anywhere.
