It’s All About MOM

Posted by on 9 May 2010

 

When I woke this morning, I knew it was going to be a great day!!  I had cards waiting for me and I was being offered breakfast and everyone was all smiles.  We had to head of to church though, so not all of it came to be.  I did get to see Miss K as alter server though today.  Ah yes, that’s what today is all about!!

Becoming a mom is the best thing that ever happened to me.  For the longest time I wondered if Mother’s Day would even apply to me.  It was ssoooo worth the wait though.  Miss K is a true blessing and has enriched my life in so many ways.  She’s yet another part of what forms me to be the person that I am.

The other main part of me being who I am is my own mother.  Boy, we’ve had some battles.  We’re very different people and I didn’t always want the same things that she did.  She was a strong women in her own right.  She had her own opinions and was very down-to-earth and at times, old fashioned.  Today I realize that she’s just a simple person.  She wants very little, but gives so very much.  Back in March, she gave me a scare but I know that I was there for a reason.  I’ve never doubted that.  I guess for me, it was a dose of reality.  I’ve known for a long time that one day, my dad will go.  That day, I realized that mom will too.  I guess I just sort of expected her to hang around and be who she is forever!!  I can’t help but think about the small wars that mom and I had sometimes.  I can’t help it because I’m having them with my own daughter now!!  Life truly does come full circle.  It’s all so much easier though when you have a mom like mine.  NO MATTER WHAT, she’s there for you.  Sometimes, I swear she’s taking me by the hand and other times, I feel like I’m stumbling badly.  I know that’s ok though because she’s helped to form me into the person that I am and especially the mom that I am.  Things will just turn out the way they’re supposed to because life really is that simple, just like mom always knew.  So now, I’ve learned to take a little and hopefully, I’m giving alot back!!

To my mother…..

And to all my lady friends and family that read this….

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!
