My mom, the warrior

Abraham Lincoln once said, "All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother."

There is no doubt that our mother’s deeply affect our lives from birth on.  I have been quite blessed to have a wonderful mom who has always encouraged me, loved me and been an example for me. 

My mom grew up in Brunswick, Georgia and was (and still is!) a true southern belle.  I would describe my mom as incredibly creative, loving and fun.  She taught me to accept others as they are, be kind to everyone and enjoy life. (lessons I am still learning!)

She may look sweet, and she is, but let me tell you my mom is one of the toughest and bravest women I know.  She beat breast cancer and continues to live out her motto, “Be a warrior not a worrier.”

Proverbs 23:25 says, “… may she who gave you birth rejoice!”.  I know my mom rejoices for the lives of her children.

On this Mother’s Day, I rejoice for the blessing of my mom.  Thanks mom for all you have done and continue to do in my life and the lives of your children and grandchildren.  I love you
