Celebrating Mothers Day

I've been blessed with one great mom. I only wish I had of appreciated it more when I was younger.
She has taught me so many things, I would never be able to write them all down.

Here are just a few of the eternal gifts she has shared with others and mentored me in:

  • PRAYER- ain't no one gonna come against a praying momma. This is one thing that I remember most from my childhood about my mom, and still to this day see it in action, and lean upon when I am in need. It has kept me and my family.
  • WORD - she has always used the bible as her guide, and as her recommendation for solutions to others. I have rarely gone to her for advice and not had her come back with scripture. What a blessing!
  • CREATIVITY - my mom can take anything from ordinary and turn it into beauty. She finds a way to make everything look special and make everyone feel special.
  • PILLAR - her and my dad are what I call pillars. They are solid, trusted people that you can count on, and most especially in a season of trial. They have held up our family more times that I could count.
  • BEAUTY - my mom reflects the beauty of God. She is beautiful on the exterior, and a brilliant dazzling beauty on the inside.

I have much to learn from her, and am a rich woman because of her love and influence in my life. These are just a few of my favorite things about my mom.

I am grateful for her patient love that fights through prayer and waits to serve and love whenever needed. I am rich. I'm thankful.
Happy Mothers Day, Mom.
