~ The Blessing of Mothers ~

~My Mother with her Mother~
~My Dad and his Mother who he lost when he was just 10.~

~Me and Mom~
Whenever it's Mother's Day, I get very sentimental. I have the kind of Mother that just talking about her will make me get a lump in my throat. If there was ever a true Mother that loved unconditionally, would put her children before herself, and loved with everything in her, it's my Mother. She has always supported me whatever I have tried and been excited at my every success. She cheered me up when I was down and gave me courage. She's the person I go to when I need advice on any subject, especially about my own children. She is honest and thoughtful. She's a true Christian. She's a prayer warrior and the best example of what a good Christian mother should be. She is loving. She would rather have family time than anything in the world. She is a true Southerner and can cook like no one I know. She became the head of her home at age 11 when she lost her precious mother. Because of that, family and being a Mother were so ultimately even more precious because she knew how much she missed and would cherish her Mother. God knew and blessed her with a family that loves her for all she is.
I love you soo much, Mom. I hope it's a very special Mother's Day.
