In this life we are truly blessed to be women, Mothers, leaders and the strength that holds the family together.
We raise our children through the trials and triumphs of life.
We smile even when we're crying inside.
We love whole heartedly the important people in our lives.
Our strength is passed on to our children--- our weaknesses dim in their eyes; as we kiss scratched knees, spend sleepless nights (when the're sick), mend fences that once stood strong but crumbled under life's pressure, help them rebuild castles that were washed away in the sand, help them pick up the pieces of their lives that seemed to have shattered.
Those precious lives we helped to create and bring into this world have stolen our hearts and we, as Mothers, unselfishly devote our entire lives to them.
Our rewards come with each passing year.
Down those long and winding roads that have been laid out for us, we walk each day in the shoes GOD has provided for us.
We don't question the events of the past or the unknowns of tomorrow.
To fill those shoes isn't always easy but somehow we manage with pride and dignity.
Now, on Mothers day we hold our heads high because we know inside, that without us, the family wouldn't be as strong and steadfast.
With our eyes on tomorrow; our hopes and dreams burried deep in our souls, we smile because we secretly know that in this life we have been blessed to be Mothers.
For all that I am and all that I hope to be---I owe it all to you and the Lord.
Thank you for your love, understanding, strength, support and most of all---our friendship.
I love you, Momma!
