Happy Mother's Day!






I sent my Mom a card this year that told her how much I appreciated her. Now, I am not a mushy card person.....at all, but something about this card just appealed to me. It's not that I don't appreciate her but the card was about how I didn't realize all she did when I was growing up. Well, how true is that! I don't remember a time that my Mom did anything without first thinking of her girls. This is the work of a Mother. I almost lost my Mom several years ago (and my Dad three years ago). I am so thankful that the Lord saw fit to spare them so that my children could have them as grandparents! I often get to the end of my day after making sure everyone got where they needed to be, ate three semi nutritious meals, had showers and baths and got into bed on time, (not to mention everything else we do) and wonder "Do my kids even LIKE me? Well, of course they do.....they just don't always show it! They may even get to the end of their day and wonder "Does my Mom even LIKE me? But as families go, we know that we love each other without condition and without fail! So, maybe by the time my kids are 35 with kids of their own they too will realize that there is nothing about my day that doesn't first begin with thoughts of my children. Even if they don't.....it will still have been worth it. Have a GREAT day!
