"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life." ~Abraham Lincoln

 

We, at SportsLeader, have celebrated several "Letter's to Mom" ceremonies in the past few weeks. Thinking, yet another great opportunity to thank our number #1 fans, ESPECIALLY on Valentine's Day, today's SportsLeader story is dedicated to all our moms who chose life. Life for us, their dear children, life for the world, better off because of our existence; life they've given themselves-in adhering to the plan originally meant for them.

SportsLeader teams celebrate MOMS!

Tribute to our Moms!

If you are sick-----your mother will call in sick too, just to stay home to keep you company!

If you are depressed------your mother WILL cheer you up, most times using ice cream!

If you have success-----your mother is first to know….and first to tell everybody SHE knows(and perfect strangers for that matter!) how great you are!

If you are late, past curfew-----your mother is first to WORRY that your life is in danger and first to HUG you when you finally do arrive.

If you don't call when you are supposed to-----your mother is first to chastise you for your thoughtlessness and first to FORGIVE and forget!

If you are guilty-----your mother is first to publicly defend you, loyal beyond a reasonable doubt and first to ask you, in private, how you could do this to her?

 

We couldn't do it without our mothers! We ALL know this is the case. So, we at SportsLeader decided to do something special for her this Valentine's Day, making this tribute video, celebrating ALL mothers. (click the blue link below)

Thank her. 
Visit her. 
Write her. 
INCLUDE her in your life TODAY.

******Kind and Generous lyrics by Natalie Merchant

You've been so kind and generous 
I don't know how you keep on giving 
For your kindness I'm in debt to you 
For your selflessness, my admiration 
And for everything you've done

You know I'm bound... 
I'm bound to thank you for it

You've been so kind and generous 
I don't know how you keep on giving 
For your kindness I'm in debt to you 
And I never could have come this far without you 
So for everything you've done

You know I'm bound... 
I'm bound to thank you for it

I want to thank you 
For so many gifts 
You gave with love and tenderness 
I want to thank you

I want to thank you 
For your generosity 
The love and the honesty 
That you gave me

I want to thank you 
Show my gratitude 
My love and my respect for you 
I want to thank you

I want to...

Thank you 
Thank you 
Thank you 
Thank you 
Thank you 
Thank you

Our moms will probably just brush off our thanks, for loving us is just what she is SUPPOSED to do. Know, however, that your thanks just reminded her again that having you was one of the best decisions she ever made in her life! 
Moms are indeed kind and generous.
