Mom - Page Text Content

1: This is a book dedicated to Jeannine Bjornrud-- wife, mother, mother-in-law, gramby and friend--whose life is a story well told.

4: i am so privileged to be the son of a woman like you. i always hear people mentioning how great you are, and how they look up to you, and i think...yep, that's my mother. | Brett

5: although I do pick up some of dad's mannerisms . . . | . . . I've learned many things from you | You've given me the most loving family | Mom, some of the most meaningful sentences to me have been spoken into my life by you. On becoming a pastor you said "I could never imagine anything else", or other times "I wish I would have saved all my kisses for your dad", "As your mom, I trust you." I have inherited your passion. As a result I feel that no one understands my heart better than you, and as my mom there is nowhere that it is safer. You've also shown me how to channel that passion into a passion for God and people. You pour so much of yourself into people, and dare to be the love of Jesus to those who usually don't receive it. I love who you are, mom. You are the best mom I could ever ask for - even better than Julie Andrews. | Seth

6: Mark, Anna, Evelyn and Anderson

8: Anderson

9: Evelyn

10: Dear Jeannine, I have loved these years being married to your son and having you as a mother in law. If you hadn't raised Mark the way you did, I wouldn't be married to him and have Evelyn and Anderson. My kids are so blessed to have you for a Gramby. They love you sooo much. It's wonderful to know that I can leave my kids with you and Marlin for the weekend and not worry about them. You have taught me so many things. Things like how to make pault and how to plan a Thanksgiving feast for 35 people. But also things that are beginning to change who I am. I have learned grace from you and I have learned how to be thankful. You have so much Godly wisdom. You lead a full, rich life and I am privileged to witness it, and even be a part of it. I love you, Anna | Anna

11: Mom - Thank you for your love. Thank you for your laughter and joy. Thank you for your grace and patience. Thank you for the excitement you bring to life. Thank you for finding joy in the little things of life. Thank you for your love for Jesus and those around you. Thank you for demonstrating Jesus’ love through your life. Thank you for loving my wife as your own daughter, right from the first time you met her. Thank you for loving my children so much their faces light up at the sound of your name. I was trying to think of ways that I see you in me and there are many, but there were two that jumped to my mind immediately. The first is your roaming feet. We all know how your feet love to seek out someone sitting near by to rub against, its kind of like a cat. I have always had the same inexplicable feet, it drove the rest of the family crazy while I was a kid and it bugs my wife now. The second would be your tear ducts. Now this has developed in me over the last few years, I believe in conjunction with having a spouse and children of my own. My tear ducts have become very “sappy” as they go into action over something as simple as a sweet little commercial. We used to chuckle as you would be blubbering over the events in a TV drama... well now I'm a blubber-er. I am proud of my roaming feet and my blubbering tendencies, proud of them because of the woman I inherited them from. And I will say that I have already seen signs of both in my kids. Thank you for being an amazing Mother Love Mark | Mark

27: Lon | Mom, you have taught us so many things that life is meant to be shared and that part of the sharing is the richness of laughter and the beauty of sharing pain. to dream big dreams and to find adventure in the every day that love is expressed through good food to make the most of every opportunity to live well is to love well that whether we like it or not, it's daylight in the swamps thank you for the hours you have spent waiting up for us, and worrying about us for the prayers that we never knew about for the wise advice (whether we asked for it or not) for being embarrassingly proud of us thank you for letting us be a part of your story
