"A mother understands what a child does not say." - Jewish Proverb

Happy Mother's Day!
Being a mom is the best "job" in the world! I'm so thankful for my husband who works so hard so I can stay home with my children. God has truly blessed me! Here are the 4 reasons I love being a Mom.

I have been blessed with a wonderful Mother who is also one of my dearest friends. My mom has been a wonderful example of godliness to me. She always has a beautiful smile, even in the darkest times. She is an inspiration to me as a mom. Many times in dealing with my children I remember how my Mom handled the situation and try to do the same. My mom loves people and has given her life for others. Many times when I talk to her she is on her way to visit someone in the hospital or take someone a meal or take someone to the grocery store who can't get out on their own. She is always sacrificing her time for others. She has been married to my Dad for 40 years and is fiercely loyal to her family. She offers encouragement instead of criticism when I make mistakes and always believes the best in me. She is also a wonderful grandmother and my children love every second they get to spend with her.
My Beautiful Mother!
