Happy Mothers Day

I've been rather absent from here lately. Life has been busy! But I won't bore you with the details of my business now. However, I making sure I take the time to get on here and make an official shout out to my Mom.

My mom is most certainly my best friend, and I'm not sure what I'd do or who I'd be if she wasn't in my life. Growing up with her - she had a knack of healing any insecurities or hurts with her hugs. When I moved across the country, I worried I wouldn't have this luxury anymore. However, I learned that a good conversation with her does almost the same. 

Some people go through most of their adulthood without a Mom. Some only get their Mom a short period of time. Some have their Mom, but experience a tumultuous relationship which causes great obstacles in their relationship. I am glad that not one day of my adulthood have I had to experience any of those. I thank God every day that I still have her part of my life.

A phone call to Mom for cooking /baking/cleaning advice trumps any food network or HGTV website or Betty Crocker Cookbook.

I have a hard time approaching a problem in my life without thinking, What would my parents want me to do in this situation? I guess that's just the morals and values they put in me from the day I was born.

I look forward to catching up with my Mom and sisters and all my family face-to-face this July when we make a trip home! As I miss them so! Haven't seen them since December. Life is ever-changing these days, and 6 months feels like 6 years! So I look forward to spending time with them.

Happy Mothers Day to my Mom, my Grandma, my sister & sister-in-laws, and all my family & friends who bend over backwards to make life safe & happy for their children! Mom's rock!

I echo what you said. We are so blessed to have a wonderful mom that we have a healthy relationship - and to still have her in our lives. I have friends who have lost their mom, some at a young age, so that is a reminder to be thankful for each day we have with her!

Can't wait for July!!

Tears welling up here! These words are the best gifts a mother can receive! I also had beautiful cards from your siblings that touched my heart so deeply! I am proud to call you "my children"! Being a mother is the greatest acheivement of my life and I am proud of each and everyone of you. I love your spouses like my own! I truly can't wait for July to get here!
