I don't know if it's because Mothers day is just a few days away, but for whatever reason I've been missing my mom lately. There are so many times now that I'm a mom that I would love to be able to ask my mom questions (like how did you deal with Terri!)
I think everyone takes their mom for granted a bit- but I know for sure that I did. I just assumed that everyone grew up in a family like mine where you had a mom and a dad and siblings and everything was pretty much perfect!
Now that I'm older and see more of what the real world is like I know how blessed I was and still am.
When I think of mom I think of a loving mom- I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that she loved me. I think of a calm mom- I don't know if I don't remember it but I really don't remember her yelling at us (I'm sure it happened occasionally, but I truly don't remember it)
I think of a wife who loved her husband. My parents didn't fight in front of us- what a great example they set for us.
I think of a mom who was a great mother to 4 children. I struggle with 3- she did an awesome job!
I really miss my mom but I'm so proud that she was my mom!
Happy Mother's Day!
