Saying Thank You To Mom On Mother’s Day


It’s  Mother’s Day 2018!  When I think back to honoring my mother on this day we always had the homemade gifts we would make and I think as a mother of 6 kids those are always my favorite gifts.

I am a mother of 6 AWESOME KIDS and 19 GRANDKIDS. I feel so blessed as a mom and grandma. As they send me gifts I cherish everyone and they always touch my heart.

 I go and see my 88 year old mother every month. She is 5 hours from me but what an honor it is to take care of her in her aging years.

I think I have gotten to know more about her than I ever did when I was growing up.  Sometimes she is very frustrating but then I realize she is fighting to stay independent and that is hard when your sight is almost gone and you have a back that is way bent over with Scoliosis.

I remember when she had to get a NEW knee.  I went up to take care of her and as she tried to lay on her couch and I on the loveseat, what memories we made that night.

She grew up very poor and her mom died when she was only 10 years old. She taught me a lot growing up from putting me in 4-H, (won a lot of first place ribbons at the fair) piano lessons for 10 years, some singing lessons and always tell the truth.

This year with my siblings we wanted to get something different so we purchase an Alexa. She said she wanted someone to talk to, as my dad died 18 years ago. I really think she will love it.

Lets go out and Celebrate Our Mothers this year and really show them how much they mean to us.

Now lets talk about other ways to celebrate mom this year…..
