The following is my Mother's Day letter written by my youngest son,
Jase Aaron Hammock, age 17. I am sharing it, hoping that it can be encouragement to someone else, too.

Dear Teacher, Nurse, Cook, Friend, Mom,
Happy Mother's Day! As a mother, you have been given a great, special job by God. Actually, we could say that you have been given many jobs that are very significant. By being a mom, you have a special, unique bond with your children, and are, also, a very special blessing, not only to Josh, Kalyn and me, but many others.
I know that you have a heart for the sick, lonely and hurt. You are a wonderful teacher to which ever kids you are teaching and to me. Even though it may seem impossible to help your students, have hope, because "Where there is a will, there is a way." And God is the one who is working in us to will and to act for His good purpose. Also, what is impossible for man, is possible for God. Thank you for all the hard work you put in as being a teacher. God does desire rest for you, also.
Thank you, Mom for all you do. Thank you for all the sandwiches you make for me. Thank you for doing my laundry and driving me where I need to be. Many times, we do not see how wonderful a mother can be. I think the greatest gift a mother can give is time to be with her children and a good example of how to walk with God. This is one of the greatest attributes a child can see in a parent. Even though they have a sinner for a parent, they see their parents not giving up in the battles they have and continue looking to Jesus, wanting to learn and be made new. Through all that you do, Mom, I hope and pray that you submit to God's plan daily, resting in Him alone, and not worrying, but knowing He has a great plan for you. God wants to do great and mighty works with you and desires for us all to shine our lights daily! And no matter if you have a teaching job at some school or not, just know that you always have a special, influential teaching job as a Mom and Christian.
Thank you, Mom, for all that you do!
Happy Mother's Day!
