Mothers Day

Sunday, May 11, 2008

It is 6:00 a.m. on Mother's Day. I am sitting by myself (for once) and reflecting on my mother and what a wonderful woman she is.

I have no idea how to explain all she has done and all that I have put her through. She has been there; a lot of time with out me realizing it, or being to self involved to recognize it. She never gave up on me, though I am sure she wanted too, I wanted to. she gave me just enough help to make me get through things but let me do enough to realize I could.

My mother gives of herself to everyone she meets, she is generous with her time and her talents. I can see God's grace in her in so many ways. Her faith has seen me and my siblings through so much so many times.

Between my brother and I we have given her more stress that anyone should. She never let us off the hook and always kept encouraging us.

When I went to Utah she wrote me a letter that I still have, to this day when I read it, I cry, it showed me that even when I thought she loved me least everything she was doing was to save me from myself. That choice sending me to treatment like that had to be incredibly difficult; but it saved my life. I hated her for sending me away. Now all I can do is say thank you.

I really hope you had a great Mother's Day. You deserve it. I am praying for you and thinking of you constantly. You are so giving and generous and loving and are a blessing to so many. I know your kids cherish you and Brian does too... even if he isn't alwasy good at showing it. We, your friends, see what a great mom you are and will be with you through whatever challenges God may put in your path. Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!

Farrah's right and I second all her comments. :) I hope you had a wonderful day and know that you are loved and your kids are going to look back at all you gave them just like you see your mom's sacrifices for you.
