Happy Mother’s Day | The Opposite, but the Same.

When I think of all the greatest blessings in my life, I undoubtedly think of my Mom. It is a relationship I have not always appreciated, not always treasured, and not always understood. Thankfully there is a God who is in the restoration business. I believe that our relationship is living proof.

This afternoon I write this to you all from an honest heart, and tell you that she is a reason I have become the woman that I am.

It was all times she would talk heart to heart while she cooked in the kitchen. My Mom is a woman who gave me wisdom.

It was all the times I didn’t have two dimes to rub together and she selflessly helped me pay my bills. My mother is a woman who has provided for me.

It was all the times that I wanted to discover who I was and she let me dream. My mother is a woman who has supported me and always had my back.

It was the all the mornings I would come downstairs, and she would be sitting next to the fireplace in her favorite rocking chair reading her Bible. My mother is a woman of prayer.

When I think of my Mom, I think of how we are very opposite. I just recently bought my dream camera and run a business. She recently bought a donkey and runs a farm. My idea of shopping is the Nordstrom Rack, and her’s is Sears. I wear heals and she wears clogs. She’s AMAZING in the kitchen and I set things on fire. Needles make me faint and she’s a registered nurse.
But then I think of Mom, and you know we’re kind of the same. I’m as passionate about business as she is farming. Some of my favorite shopping days are days when I am shopping with her. She always parks at the exact same spot when we go to the mall. And so do I. I get my coffee addiction from her. ( yes ladies and gentlemen there is a root to all things )  I’m not  the cook that she is, but I am learning with an appreciation for baking from scratch. She’s gifted as a nurse because she loves to take care of people, and I am a full time nanny because I love to do the same.

Because you see, we are very different but very much the same.

And I am proud to call her Mom.
Happy Mother’s Day from my heart to yours.

Oh, and we both love chocolate. Duh.

    A beautiful tribute to a beautiful mother from her wonderful daughter. You are both equally blessed to have each other, and I am sure she will feel the same way. But I beg to differ on one thing….Chocolate is loved by all women! hahahaReplyCancel
