On this Mother’s Day weekend I wanted to take the time to talk about some women in my life who are so dear to me.
My mother obviously is first and foremost. She is my rock. She is my shoulder to cry on when times have been oh so rough. Lord knows we have had our moments. But through them all we have come out stronger than before. She not only was my mother but she was my teacher, and not just my teacher of life lessons. She homeschooled me. She put in so much time and effort into not only growing me in life but in school as well. She has taught me so very much through the years. She has nailed into me that your and you’re are very different and though they sound they same they are different. She has taught me the correct use of grammar and that it is so important(Mrs. English Major). 😉
My mom was there for me when most people weren’t. When I was finding out who my friends were in high school, she was my friend when I had none.
She has loved me in my darkest moments and she has prayed me through some extremely difficult times. She has never given up on me. No matter what.
She is so talented. And she doesn’t even realize it. She never gives herself enough credit. (I wonder where I get that from? Hehe)
She has supported me in every endeavor I’ve gone after. From drum lessons, cheerleading, basketball, gymnastics, soccer, photography and even more.
She is the most wonderful and loving grandmother. She cares for Analeigh and loves her. She shows her Gods love and shows her just what everlasting love looks like.
She was and is the greatest example of what a mother is and should be. I am so thankful that God put her as my mom. Because goodness knows no one else could have handled my crazy! Thanks for being my stronghold for my whole life. For being not only an amazing mother but for being one of my closest friends as well. There is so much more I can say. It would take all day, all week, or even a whole lifetime.
So mom, thank you. Thank you for putting up with every last crazy idea I’ve had in my life. For caring for me. For loving me unconditionally. For accepting me for who I am. For never giving up even when things weren’t easy. For being you. For being the best mom ever.
Another lady I would like to speak on is my best friend. We have known each other for quite sometime. Since preschool actually. We knew each other from our homeschool group. And for years we did NOT care for one another at all. Over the years we grew to know each other and one day(and I am not quite sure when) we just clicked. It was like “hey you’re my best friend” and I am not really sure when or how.
Anyhow, I want to say happy Mother’s Day to my best friend. Even though she can’t physically hold her baby in her arms, she is still a mother. Her baby is in the arms of our creator. And that is so precious. Though for us here, it is rather hard. And I know for my dear friend it is a heart wrenching pain on a daily basis. So, Daisy, happy Mother’s Day. I love you dear friend.
The next, Tamie. She is the most wonderful mans mother. She is my Matts mother. Though we just met recently, I adore her. Her soul is so caring and sweet. And not to mention she raised one of the most amazing men I know.
She cares for my Allie and loves her dearly. She has shown me nothing but kindness. And I am so thankful for her in our life. I am thankful for the person she is, her kind heart, and for accepting us right into their life. Happy Mother’s Day! You deserve nothing but the best!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommas out there.
If your mother is still around, be thankful and hug her neck a little tighter. Hold her close and dear.
And for those who don’t have a mother this year, hold tight. I can’t imagine what it must feel like. And mothers who have lost their babies/children, I pray for you. For no parent should ever have to outlive their children.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Thanks for reading,
