i love you for that

You taught and fought and pushed and encouraged me for my faith to be my own, even when I gave you hell for it. You organized the wedding amazingly - if it'd all been left up to me, Matt and I would have gone to Vegas. You also left your home and moved across the world to be with Dad. I have all the more respect for you for doing that only because I'm slowly learning what it means to leave and cleave and I love how you encourage me in that; but still, sometimes two hours seems like half a world away, only because I miss you, a whole lot. At times, I really want you here. I call you on the phone, we talk and then you pray. I love you for that, Mum. Thanks for everything.
