Mother's Day

My mother has been the greatest inspiration in my life.  Through good and bad times she has been the one person who has always been there.  When sometimes the rest of the world has disappeared my mothers love remained strong.  No words could possibly describe how much I love my mother, how much I respect her, love her, and how grateful I am to have her as my mother. 

When I think of what a mother should be, I always think of my mother.  She is kind, unselfish, compassionate, honest, generous, loving, strong, giving, sensitive,courageous, smart, nuturing, has strong morals/values, and provides unconditional love to her family.

My father worked long hours so it was her who had the day to day responsibilities of  raising two kids.  And when she eventually went back to work it was her who still had that responsibility.  She did it flawlessly, and made it look easy.  She has been the one true blessing in my life and our family, and if you know me....that is something I rarely say about anyone or anything.

My sister is now a mother.  And in watching her I feel she embodies the same beautiful qualities of our mother. There is no doubt she is going to be just as an amazing mother as other mother is. 

I'm only the mother of a little doggie, but motherhood to me is the hardest job.  Mothers are responsible for raising a another soul, who for at least 18 years is completely dependent upon you for just about everything.  And it's up to a mother to try and give her children the best life possible which isn't easy, and these days seems even more challenging.

How do you protect children from all the dangers of the world?  How do you provide them with enough love to make them into good people?  How do you teach them right from wrong?  How does a mother make herself into the kind of person that her kids can depend on, trust, and look up to?  

Mothers do so much in life, and I don't know how they do it.  Mothers have a huge amount of responsibility, being a mother is a full time job and just like Valentine's Day, Mother's Day should be celebrated more often, where mothers are shown the appreciation and love they deserve everyday.

So today, I not only wish all Mother's a Happy Mother's Day.  But for Mother's of all ages....inspire to be not just a mother but an amazing mother because the world needs more mother's like mine. 




And to my mother Happy Valentine's Day.   This song is for you mom!

"Because You Loved Me"

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You've been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

I'm everything I am
Because you loved me
