This Mother's Day, I would like to take the time to introduce you to my mother. Her name must remain anonymous as to deter all kidnappers! She is best known as Meme. She is truly one of a kind! As Daddy puts it, "She's not happy unless she is with one of her babies!" She birthed 2 daughters, 5 years apart. She is a very strong, hardworking person. She taught 1st grade for 30 years & hardly ever missed a day. She survived raising 2 hormonal teenage girls that were strong willed & knew better than her! lol My sister & I both got married in the same year, just 3 months apart to the guys we dated forever. She has welcomed 7 grandkids with open arms. Her jumping right in & helping is the biggest understatement ever. She loves them more than words can express. She is practically their other mother. In fact, they probably prefer her over us due to her constant spoiling! She is the most unselfish, giving person. It's really so much so that it is to a fault! She comes over, helps out, buys 99% of their clothes/toys, feeds her whole crew at least 3 times or more per week, shows up unannounced bringing loads of groceries to cook & help out for the day, attends most every single Dr visit & knows the grandkid's Dr by 1st name basis, takes all of us on fab vacations, hosts the best birthday & holiday celebrations, & so much more! No, she isn't rich. She's just completely involved. If she had just $10 left to her name, she would spend it on us with no thought of herself. She isn't just our mother, she is our everything. Even our husbands think so for they will even call her or visit without us! I wish we could afford to show her our appreciation by buying her some once in a lifetime present, but she knows we barely afford the normal gifts for each occasion. She doesn't care though. She just loves us, her family. That's all she wants! You know, surely everyone reading this is a free moral agent. Time is a gift. We spend it & our hard earned money on what matters most in our lives. I'm honored that I'm a huge part of that in the life of my mother. If I turn out half as great as her, I'll surely do! My kids would love that any day!
Happy Mother's Day! Have a blessed day!!!
