Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

I know there are also many “challenges” involved with raising children and being a “Mom,” but if you are a true, loving mom, you will know what to do or say in times of trouble and joy.

He never forgot when he was a teen, with all the growing pains to go along with family rules and boundaries. I must say, these things, saved both of our lives in years to come!

I credit God and His Word showing me how to be a Proverbs 31 woman, not perfect, but always pursuing and letting that Word grow in me by being available to my husband and children.

My favorite verse in Proverbs 31 is #25 – “She is clothed with strength and dignity and rejoices in the future.” And verse #28  – “Her children arise and call her blessed, her husband also and he praises her.”

My precious mother is in heaven, and I miss her, like crazy. She taught me so much about God, womanhood, motherhood, music, art, cooking and sewing. She taught me how important a sense-of-humor is, along with laughter with a free heart and caring about others.

May 9 this year is Mother’s Day, a day set aside to honor our mothers. Near or far, remember to send cards, presents or flowers from sweet daughters or sons. Phone calls are nice, and so is a meal if you’re close by.

Remember to have fun and have a happy Mothers Day.
