Happy Mother’s Day Mom!

My mom is my hero.

She’s the most gracious, forgiving, patient person I know.

My mom raised 3 children mostly as a single mom. My dad finished life well, (I wrote about that HERE) before dying a couple years ago, but to fully understand my life, you would have to know that for much a my life, my dad was an absentee father. That put a huge burden on my mom. Some of you know the hardship of the single mom, and it’s one I never take lightly. My mom sometimes worked as many as three jobs, but honestly, I never remember her not being home.

She kept our house immaculate, she cooks better than anyone I know, she can sew, cross-stitch, and raise a garden. She is grounded in tradition, but she’s loving Facebook. My mom mothered the neighborhood and the people with whom she worked. She’s never met a stranger and she has no enemies. My mother is growing in her faith even in her 70’s. She loves God passionately and boldly and prayed my father and sister back to Jesus. (I’m fairly confident she’s praying for me too.)

My mom rocks!

My mom has taught me what unconditional love and support looks and feels like in a human sense. Regardless of what I’ve done or where I’ve gone in life, one person is always my biggest supporter.

Thanks mom! I love you! Happy Mother’s Day!

Words can never express…

    I always have a little cry Mother's Day morning as I lost my mother to breast cancer 30 years ago. Her life (and death) made me who I am today. Thanks Mom, I miss you always. I thank God for what time I had you. When I look at our family (all siblings and their families), my own children and grandson….you are woven through each of us to this very day and for that I'm very thankful….so Happy Mother's Day Mom. We love you.

    And to Ron's Mom and Cheryl….Hugs:)….job well done!

      Melissa, I know exactly how you feel… It's really hard when the smallest things reminds you of her and it just makes you want to collapse and cry… but we have to remember the happy times that made her life just that extra special. We'll always have that and we'll both see our mothers again at the right time. It's never 'goodbye', it's 'see you later'.
