Happy Mother's Day to all of you women out there who have
You make a difference!
Whether you invest in
kids - or adults.
your biological relatives - or not.
Here are some thing my wonderful Mom has taught me.
1. It's good to be silly sometimes.
2. Stay healthy and slim, but don't limit food too much.
Sometimes a woman just needs a snack!
3. Keep learning how to do new things!
4. No make-up is prettier than too much make-up.
5. Keep those you care about close and protect them.
6. Vanity is no good, but making a little effort is a good thing.
Even if the pigtails are only one inch long.
Mom, even when I am frustrated, irritable, cranky, grumpy,
and not as appreciative as I should be,
you have shown me what LOVE is.
You have been patient
You helped me keep going when I thought I couldn't.
You taught me that I am significant.
You remind me constantly that I am exactly what God made me to be - and that's a good thing.
"When someone loves you, it's like having a blanket all round your heart."
(from "Bridget Jones's Diary")
Even if I think no one loves me, I always know my Mom does. (My whole family does!)
Things seem a little less bad on those days because I have that blanket round my heart,
knowing that my Mommy always loves me.
Mom, I love you.
Thanks also to the other women in my life who have loved me especially much.
You have added extra layers to the padding around my heart!
I love you!
|My Auntie Cindy, for example|
A special thank you to
my Mom-in-Law, Linda
and my other Mom-In-Law, Karen.
You have contributed to making my wonderful husband the man he is, and I appreciate and love you.
And in case you were wondering how my feet are lately, I have purchased some comfy flats for summer!
(I got a super smoking deal at a one-day Macy's sale. 65% of the regular prices of these shoes!)
And look at the inside! Beautiful!
And black sparkly Aerosoles!
Disco ball toes!
And a cat in a box!
Health update: Colonoscopy scheduled for Tuesday, so tomorrow will be no food and too much familiarity with the bathroom for my taste. I am a little nervous because I know my insides are messy and I don't want the doctor to damage anything during the procedure. I would appreciate prayers.
I also have been VERY fatigued. I don't know why, and I really don't like it, but it seems to be reality for me right now. I am working to realize that I feel worse when I do too much, but it's really hard to keep resting even though it isn't going to make me all better. If you are a praying person, please pray that my mind, mood, and body will be strong instead of as fragile as they have been. Thank you.
Enjoy a relaxing Sunday.
P.S. Check back on Father's Day for a tribute to my wonderful Dad!
