My mom is one of a kind. She’s a beautiful woman. If it wasn’t for her I don’t know where I would be in my life. My mother has been with me through thick and thin. I appreciate every moment with her because when she’s gone it’s too late to say the things you want to say to her.
My mother has eight grown children and a whole lot of grandchildren and great, great grand children. My mother is now 83 yrs old and I thank God for her everyday. My mother is very special to me. She taught me to be a good mother to my children. She also taught me to lean on the Lord because sometimes things are not always going to be roses. My mother always made sure that we had the things that we needed. Sometimes we didn’t always have, but she made sure that there was something under the Christmas tree every year.
How many of us have taken our mother for granted? Things are not the same as they were when I was growing up. So much has changed over the years. The one thing that I would never forget is how my mother struggled to make sure that we grew up to be young men and beautiful women.
I now have grown children of my own and grandchildren. I try to instill the best into all of them like my mother did for me. I will always love my mom. She brought me in this world. Remember you only get one mother. Cherish her everyday of your life.
