The first time I watched this ad about moms of (future) Olympians, I cried. I thought of ones I love, back in Ohio. I thought of the future of my children, and every hope that it holds for them. I thought about the true, pure gift of being a Mom.
The second time I watched, I cried again, only for different reasons. It hit me square in the mug - this is how Jesus loves me. And you. He knows what is best for us, He takes us to wherever it is we're going, He knows how to provide exactly what we need. He's our craziest fan in the bleachers. He hurts when we fall. He tells us to get back up. He doesn't love us because we're the best.
He loves us because we're His.
