I have really wonderful women in my life that I want to honor on Mother's day.
First of course, my MOM. My mother was a young mom and we had a lot of fun together. I did not always live with her but I always knew she loved me. Everyone thought she was so cool and wanted her to be their mom. She was like a really wonderful big sister and we did lots of fun stuff together. We also went through many dark trials, that I am really thankful for. God has used those trials to help me be compassionate and have understanding about some things a lot of people will never understand. Many miles now separate us but our hearts will always be connected. She taught me that even when life is hard you have to keep going, doing the best you can. She always made me feel she would love me no matter what.
Thank you MOM!
Thank you MOM!
Another MOM to me is my Mamaw. I lived with her on and off my whole childhood. She always made me feel safe and loved. She was the ultimate Martha Stewart mom. She made all of my cousin (that she adopted) and my birthday cakes. She made every dress I wore to school formals! Mamaw was a wonderful cook and our family dinners were amazing. Holiday's at her house are the days children dream of. She took me to church and taught me that Jesus loves me. Even in the very dark times in my life I believed Jesus loved me because I was told so many times as a little girl. She has spent all of her 83 years serving and loving others. Now that her children and grandchildren live far away and my precious Papaw is in Heaven, she spends her days serving her Church and friends. She taught me to love Jesus and to serve others.Thank you Mamaw!
I was married at 17, I know it is incredibly young. So for 15 years my Mother-in-love has been like a mother to me, especially because my Mamaw and Mom are 2,000 miles away. My Mother-in-love has treated me like a daughter and I am so thankful for her. When I say I would be lost without her I am not kidding, she is so very helpful to me. When I had Jonathan she keep all of my kids for a loooooong time. She pours out blessing's of time and Love in our lives. I know it is the grace and love of God in my life that he gave me such a helpful, Loving, mother-in-love. Thank YOU MAM!
My honey and his mommy
There are three special sisters in my life, none of them are my biological sisters.
My cousin Tabitha is my sister we were raised in the same home like sisters. She is a wonderful mom to her sweet children. We are separated by many miles as she is an organic farmer in Main. We have very different lives, so I really love all the wonderful things I learn from her. Almost every happy childhood memory includes Tab. I used to always say I wish I had a sister, one day many years ago my husband looked at me and said you did, Tabitha. I was like yeah, I DO! Miss you TAB.
My close friend KATHY has been a huge part of my life for many years. Now many miles separate us as well, but I am so thankful that we stay connected. She has inspired and taught me so many things about being a mother and a Christian. Our weekly phone calls/prayer times are one of the high points of every week. Thank you Kathy you have pointed me to Jesus in so many way and so many times.
My Sister-In-Love is an AMAZING woman and I am thankful to watch our children grow up together. Her love for her children is beautiful. They are an incredible family that allows God to give them as many children as he would like. It is her example and testimony that lead us to home school our children. Thank you sweet sis that your love and light for Jesus shines bright!
I also want to say how very thankful I am for all my online friends, you have made this time in my life bearable with your love and support. To All you mommies with babies in Heaven I am saying prayers for you that you would find joy and peace this weekend A wonderful pastors wife Michelle told me the Lord was going to bring special ladies into my life during this time. I had no idea that they would be on a computer, never the less I feel so very blessed. We might not meet this side of Heaven but someday we will give each other a big hug :)
I am blessed with wonderful women in my life
THANK YOU JESUS!
THANK YOU JESUS!
To all of the special MOMs in my life...
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
~Proverbs 31 28-31
