My Mom

Well hello everyone. It has been so long since I have posted I am not sure I remember how to do this. I am sure it will come back to me. Things have been a bit rough for me lately. I won't bother you with all the details but sometimes I just wonder how many tears one can shed and if something will ever make me happy again. I am working on it. The weather has been so horrible. Last Thursday we got a foot of snow! It is all gone now but it was a very long winter. I am looking forward to when the days are all warm.

I would like to share a little bit about my mom on this Mother's day. She is so special and this is my tribute to her.

My mom lived a rough life. Her mother died when my mom was 10 years old and my mom took on the role of trying to be a mom to her younger brother and sister. Times were tough at that time and the family was torn apart and my mom lived with her Grandparents until she graduated from high school. She went to 'teacher college" and became a teacher and helped put my dad through college. When my dad got his first teaching and coaching job my mom was at home with newborn twins, 13 months later another child was added to the family, she was busy to say the least. She lost her son to leukemia when he was 5 and then adopted two sons through the years. My mom and I had our time, like most teenage girls do with their mothers, when it was hard but I knew she was always there for me and always loved me. Whatever I needed, if I knew it or not, my mom was there to give it to me. Now I would have to say that my mom is and has been my very best friend. There isn't a day that goes by when we don't talk at least once on the phone and we see each other often. My mom was there almost everyday in the hospital with me for 7 and a half months. She would spend an hour on the road there and back to visit me. She fought for me when I couldn't, she cried for me, she prayed for me and she rejoiced with me.
I thank my mom for all that she has taught me, all she has given me and all that she is. I know God looks down on her and smiles for the faith that she has and all that she gives and does in His name. She is a blessing to all that meet her.
Love you mom, Happy Mother's Day.
