Mothers Day is very important, it is a day where we pause to celebrate the one person in the world you really deserves to be celebrated. The Mom.
Now, I have always known that a mom is hard work. I’ve sometimes taken Mom’s for granted. Once I became a Mom it was different, I understood what my mommy had deal with for so many years. The heart aches I caused her, the joy I brought her, the frustration, pain, happiness, love it is all about.
I know that I’ve disappointed her, make her proud and sent her from one end of the spectrum to the other. But I have to say that I’m thankful for her. I love her.
Mommy, you have dealt with so much in your life, and loved me no matter what you were dealing with. Been there for me, when I haven’t deserved it; loved me when you should have hated me. No matter what, you’ve been an amazing mother. I thank you for sharing my smiles, drying my tears, holding me when I needed to cry, letting me go when I needed to run, scolding me, encouraging me, helping me and being the mom my friends also called mom. You have been and continue to be a wonderful amazing grandmother to my children. Always being there when I need you, always ready to step in when I need you. You have no idea how much I appreciate you, and rely on you. I can only hope that I can one day be the amazing mother you were. I love you.
I also have an amazing mother in law, and I want to thank you for raising your son to be the man he is. Because of you, he’s a hard worker, a man of Christ, a man who is good, loving, stubborn, and special. Thank you for raising him right. Thank you for not being a monster in law, and welcoming me into your family all those years ago. I appreciate all you do for him, me and our kids. I love you, and I’m thankful that I also have you. To listen to my stories, supporting me in my dreams, and being such a great and tender grandmother to my children.
There are other women in my life, who have had a hand in being a mom to me every now and then, and I thank each and every one of you. No matter what you did for me, you have shaped me into the women I am now, for better or worse. (lol) Thank you ladies.
I also have to give a shout out to those precious babies that made me a mommy: I love you kiddos, you are my world, you are so special and I love you. I thank God he’s given me three sweet children. Even if you are rotten sometimes.
I know this show of gratitude is late. It’s not being posted on Mother’s Day. That is because 1. I’m super busy beforehand and couldn’t post it. 2. I enjoy a computer free mother’s day. 3. I think it’s important to not just limit the love to one day. to show how much we love each other, appreciate each other, more than one day a year.
