I want to wish each of you a wonderful Mother's Day. Until I became a mother myself, I had no idea what an incredible role it was....incredibly rewarding....incredibly challenging...incredibly fun...incredibly exhausting...incredibly enlightening....incredibly humbling...INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT! Each day is filled with highs and lows. I often wonder why God entrusted me with these three precious souls and then I just dismiss the thought and offer prayers of thankfulness. And through the daily challenges, I often think of my own mother and the sacrifices that she made for me.
I found this quote and it perfectly reflects how I feel today:
My mother kept a garden, a garden of the heart. She planted all the good things that gave my life its start. She turned me to the sunshine and encouraged me to dream, fostering and nurturing the seeds of self-esteem. And when the winds and rains came she protected me enough, but not too much because she knew I needed to grow strong and tough. Her constant example always taught me right from wrong. Markers for my pathway that will last a lifetime long. I am my mother's garden. I am her legacy, and I hope today she feels the love reflected back from me.
May your day be filled with love and happiness!!!! Happy Mother's Day!
