Celebrating Mom!

This weekend was a fun-filled weekend that I will hopefully have more time later to delve into details.  But I wanted to share our family’s Sunday.  As many of you know, Sunday was Mother’s Day.  A time to really let Mom know how much she means to you.

Let me give you a little insight into my mom.  She is a prayer warrior, a wonderful encourager, a guidance counselor, a coach, a friend, a mother, a grand mother, a sister, and so much more.  She has the type of faith that I hope one day I have.  She has a relationship with the Lord that is just inspiring.  I go through each day wanting to live my life for the Lord like my mom does.  She has more strength than anyone I know.  Our family has been through so much over the past two years and my mom has even proven how much stronger she is through it all.

Below is a picture of my mom and me that is on my bulletin board at work next to two pictures.  A picture of my dad & me and a picture of the hubs & me.  I was a mess on that dance floor with my mom, and I’m sure our guests that day didn’t know how to handle it.  But I was honored that my mom would dance with me….and you know what?  I could feel my dad dancing right along with us in heaven.  Though it was a dance full of tears – they were both of sadness and joy all at the same time.  Talk about some messy love. 🙂

The family got together to celebrate the mom’s in our family and also two family birthdays.  I hope you got a little insight into how awesome my mom is.  So thankful the Lord chose me to be one of her daughters and so excited to see how the rest of the story unfolds!

I hope one day I can be the mom to my daughters that my mom has been to me.  Such a woman of faith, inspiration and grace.  Love you, Mom!

  1. My beautiful daughter, Kathleen,

    I love you baby girl. God has given us many blessings through all the tears and heart aches of the past couple years. He has taught our family that He is always present and mostly that when we feel that we have no strength left, just hold on to Him. His strength will always carry our family through. I am so honored to be your Mother. You are an amazing woman of faith an an inspiration to me. I love you more than all the stars in the sky and always remember that Daddy loves you even more. We are blessed to have him in heaven interceding on our behalf. Thank you for your beautiful words and amazing heart!! Love, Mom
