Mother's Day!

Mother's Day! For some it is a very special and happy day. For some it can be a sad day! But for all, I hope it is a day we can honor our Mommas. I feel truly blessed that God gave me a momma who loves me and did her best to raise me to be a good person! I pray every day that God shows me how to be a mom to my boys that brings honor to him. I have not only been blessed with a great mom, but with so many women in my life who have taught me things about being a mom.
*Grandma Margie/Grandma Betty: Both my Grandma and Matthew's grandma have showed me what is like to love your family more than anything. Both of these women love their kids beyond words.
*Mrs. Stacy: Mrs. Stacy was my boss when I worked at the pharmacy in high school. I always said I wanted to be like Mrs. Stacy when I grew up! She is the most amazing mom. She loves her kids and wants the best for them, but most importantly she loves God! She is the most caring, honest, loving woman I know!
*Matthew's mom: I can honestly say I have never met anyone who is so selfless. She always puts her kids before herself. She will go without so her kids can have. She has more patience than any person in this world.
*Mrs. Janet: I have only known Mrs. Janet since I have lived in Kennett, but I feel like she has been part of my life forever. She has taught me how to be a true daughter of the King. She has always has advice when it comes to be being a "boy mom"(she has two boys). She has been there for me when I thought no one else was. I love you Mrs. Janet!
*and last but not least, my momma! My mom's mom passed away when she was 9, so having a mom growing up was something she didn't have. She did have lots of women in her life that were "motherly figures". My mom did a great job raising me even if she didn't have a mom there with her telling her how to raise a daughter! She did the best she could with what she had, and I think she did a pretty good job! :) She was and is always there for me, but does not smother me. She taught me important things in life..*jobs are important: I have always had a job until kids came along. I worked all through high school and college. I paid for most the stuff I had. At the time I would get so upset, but I look back and am so grateful for this. I understand what it is to appreciate things and know what things cost.  *how to run a home: I always had chores. I made my bed, did laundry, and helped clean the house. It was not always fun, but I did it. I am in shock now at the people who are in there 20's and their parents still wait on them??? I don't understand this. I am so glad that I can do things for myself and don't have to have my mom to get things done.   *laugh a little: mom and I have the same sense of humor. We can sit at the table and laugh for hours over things no one else will laugh at. I am so grateful that she has taught me how to laugh. Life is too short not to laugh!

There are so many other women in my life who have left an impression on my heart! I thank God every day for all the women he has put in my life and how he has used them to teach me something. I hope everyone had a super Mother's Day!

 Have a blessed day!
Lots of love..
