A little girl, asked where her home was, replied, "where mother is." Keith L. Brooks
It doesn't matter how old I get, or after I get married in 8 months, or when I have children of my own...there will always be a feeling of home my with mom. That's what she is to me and I can't foresee that changing in the future, ever. She will always be one of my biggest comforts.
"A mother is a person who if she is not there when you get home from school you wouldn't know how to get your dinner, and you wouldn't feel like eating it anyway." Anonymous
Sometimes dinner is better with mom. Sometimes a movie is better with mom. Moments in life are better with my mom there to experience it with me and that goes for even the tiny ones or ones most would think are insignificant. There's a certain amount of appreciation that goes into life's moments when you have people with you that hold pieces of your heart.
"Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." Elizabeth Stone
If you've met my mother, this one needs no explanation. Take this as literally as you possibly can when it comes to my momma. She worries like she would if I were actually holding her heart in my hand and with one false move, I'd break it. It's like she's constantly holding her breath with worry for her children. *I must say, I find myself doing this with both of my parents. The tables have now turned and I worry about them, sometimes I feel as though I worry just as much as they me (I realize this probably isn't possible, but sometimes I feel it so).
"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie." Tenneva Jordan
Sacrifice. To the last piece of pie to entire pieces of her life, mom has sacrificed a lot to raise her children. She's sacrificed everything from personal time to plans for her future. But I must say, I sure am grateful she did. Because if I had any other mom, great or not, I wouldn't feel the content that I do.
Happy Mother's Day Momma. I love you bunches.
