Good morning and welcome Through My Back Door. You may have some homemade cookies or some strawberries and pound cake (I found in the freezer) along with your coffee. This is Mothers Day weekend and I want to do a short post to talk about Mothers. I miss my own Mother so much, still. My Mother was a character. Really. She told it like it was. She minced no words and would always say if you said "You shouldn't have said that", "Well the truth will stand on judgement day!" She had lots of funny little sayings and I did a blog once about them. We all still use them and have a good laugh. She was one of the most loved people ever. Beth said to me not too long ago, "I miss her." Everyone has happy memories of her. UNfortunately I have only this one picture of her on my computer, from when Seth was like four and he is now almost 24.
I need to get some pictures on my computer and maybe I will now. Anyway my Mother liked to sing. Deb takes after her and has a pretty voice. Both Mother and Daddy sang. Daddy could play any strnged instrument he picked up. Any.Both my boys play the guitar. Mother played the piano. I have, to my Dads dismay, no musical ability. I did take piano lessons and HATED them. I wanted to play the guitar and yodel! Now go figure.lol I am sharing way too much with you all.lol
This Mothers Day we have two new Mothers in our family Beth and Lindsay. They make me proud. Amanda is a good Mother, so is Anastasia. I am also proud of Deb, Renda, and Kristy, for being the Mother's they have been. I am also thankful for the Mothers of Michael and Renda for raising such wonderful children. Also for Rita, Renee, Teresa, and Dawn for my grand in laws.
One of the best parts of my own life is being a Mother. So this Mothers Day lets all take time to let our Mothers know we care. It doesn't have to be anything elaborate, a simple I love you, will do. If you like me no longer have your Mother, sit quietly and call on your memories. Be grateful you had them.
I am grateful you came Through My Back Door where life is good.
ps: I know not every one who has the Mother titile is or has been a good one. You don't have to honor her, but give her thanks for giving you life. Not aborting you. If there is someone in your life who has been a Mother figure or mentor. Honor her
PSS:Won't be long until a couple of vacations are coming. I am having company the first of the week. Summer is here and I love it!
PSSS: I want to add there were a few people in my life who I respected and who shared their wisdom with me. My Aunt Annie, was always there for me. Trula Wells, and Lavetta Crawford, were Godly women who mentored me. I loved both of them dearly and I feel bad I haven't done for younger women at my church, what these two did for us years ago.
