Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. And I’ve been thinking about what it means to a be a mother and wife and daughter ~ But more importantly what it means to be all three. Of course all women/girls are daughters; they’re born and they have mothers. And many women become wives and I suppose even more become mothers (who really needs a husband?).
I’m blessed to have all three in my life; my mother, my wife and my daughter. And each of them is in fact a mother, a wife and a daughter. They share much in common; these three women. The common thread is their love for our family.
I love that you taught me how to pray and have faith in God.
I love that you love Dad (and he still adores you, too).
I love that all of us inherited your sense of humor (even though Dad thinks he’s the funny one).
I love that you always look pretty; I have always been so proud to be seen with you.
I love that you love Deb as much as your own daughter.
I love the example that you set for each of us to follow.
I love that you are most giving, loving person that I have ever met.
I love that you are the most natural mother in the world ~ you knew instantly what Tyson needed when he was first placed in your arms ~ and you still do. Ditto for Bess and Blake.
I love that you have made whevever we’ve ‘hung our hat’ a home and filled it with your love.
I love that you’ve made me laugh everyday of our lives together (even though I’m the funny one).
I love that you are like a lioness when it comes to protecting your children and grandchildren.
I love that your beauty on the outside is ‘trumped’ by your beauty within.
I can’t imagine my life without you.
I love that you are the best parts of your Mom and me (mostly your Mom).
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mothers out there. Remember none of us would be here without you!
