Now that I'm a mother I am figuring out what my mom was talking about all those years.....

Mom, you were right when you said.....

...You will wish you'd never stopped taking piano lessons.
...As a mom, you give you family 110%.
...You never stop being a parent.
...Even when your friends let you down, you always have family - keep that bond strong.
...It's hard to watch your kids hurt.
...There is enough love in a mom for more than one child.
...Mom's don't enjoy spanking!! :)
...Mom's aren't making you be a slave - they are just helping to teach you responsibility.
...I would wish I had cooked more than Hamburger Helper on my cooking night!!
...Be thankful when all the neighbor kids come to your house to play - at least your kids are home.
...Let the little things go - don't dwell on them.
...Shop for sales!! Don't buy it at full price!!
...When you are tempted to worry, ask yourself, "What is the worst thing that could happen?"
...Clip coupons - they do help!
...Enjoy your kids - they grow too fast!
...When you are tempted to think it all looks too overwhelming, take it one day at a time.
...Enjoy every moment with your little ones ~ I saw that in you as you stayed home with us everyday ~ not sure I ever said Thanks for that!

Happy Mother's Day, Mom. Thanks for all you taught me and still continue to teach me. I only hope my kids look back on me like I look back on my time with you. I love you.

Happy Mother's Day to one of the greatest women (and moms) I have ever known!

THANK YOU SO MUCH -- to a special daughter! I still look back at times and wish I had done some thing even better. It is fun to watch you, now a mother as well, raising your kids. We are so pleased you are teaching them to love God and follow Him. Two of the other most important things you can teach your kids is obedience and respect -- and you are doing both. Happy Mother's Day to you, my Daughter - I love you!

Beautiful post! I hope you had a great Mother's day!


great words of wisdom !!!! what we would do without our moms !!!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
