I'm taking a week off from my Sunday Seven this week for a very special reason, my momma.
Well first off my momma deserves an award alone on the sole reason that she did not kill me as a teenage girl. No seriously I was
horrendous not the easiest to live with.
For the last 26 years my momma has modeled for me what it means to be a woman with class and integrity, a wife, a friend, and a mother.
One of the things I love most about her is her incredible strength. This time day last year my mom was in the hospital lying flat on her back for the 4th day in a row because she had broken her back and her foot. For the next few weeks my mom had to depend on others to help her do everything from personal hygiene type things to pretty much catering to her every move (which is a completely foreign concept to someone who is always taking care of others before herself). Through a time when her complaining, bad attitude, or self pitty would have been understandable, even justified she refused to do any of those. She always chose to focus on the positive through the pain and frustration. In the months it took her to even begin to heal she never cried and I cannot even recall a time when she used her accident for anything but a way to praise God for giving her the strength to get through this.
I have always loved and admired my mom but this past year has taken it to a new level.
Momma, I know you are reading this and I just want you to know you're amazing, beautiful, and inspiring. I love you. Happy Mother's Day
Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies reading this. Thank you for putting on your secret cape each morning and doing all the things that only mommies can do!
