Being a mother is certainly one of the highest honored titles I had ever hoped to achieve. As a little girl, I prayed that God would bring my baby doll to life, I loved that baby so much and I was certain I could be a wonderful mother to that baby at 8 years old! Boy, did I have a lot to learn! After being married then actually becoming a mother I both laugh and cringe at the thought of having children so young. Waiting until I was nearly 25 you’d think I’d be more prepared, I was not! Being a mother is hard; it’s tiring it’s exhausting, it’s emotional, it’s rewarding, it’s laughter, it’s love and joy, tears and sorrows and so much more. I know over the years I have said things to my mother such as: “I don’t know how you did it with 3, we only have 2!”; or “I’m sorry if I ever acted like that!” But one thing I know I have not said enough is, “Thank you!” Being a momma, many times, is thankless: all the clothes and dishes are just magically clean, the food just appears in the fridge and on the table, the school papers sign themselves… In the moment of childhood, I too must have thought all these things but now as a mother I am realizing how important my own mother was and certainly still is. So, Momma, Connie Carter, Thank You; thank you for all the meals, and clothes and dealing with my emotions and sass, but most importantly, thank you for showing me how to be a mother by leading by example and being the best mother I have ever met. I know I’ve never said it enough, I also know I can never say it enough, but I am beyond thankful and blessed that I get to have you as my Momma! Happy Mother’s Day to you. And also, Happy Mother’s Day to all you other mothers, I hope you have a blessed day! Proverbs 31:28 “Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her”
