I thought in observance of Mother's Day I would write about a memory from each of the mom figures in my life.

My Mom:  She loves me and taught me much knowing what was best for me in spite of the fact that I didn't always agree with her.  I'm so thankful that she had the wisdom to do what was right.  Thanks, Mom.  I love you!

Jeff's Mom:  I love that she is a quiet inspiration to me to have a gentle and quiet spirit.  Something I struggle with, but I know through Christ I can come closer and having someone who I can see do what I should do helps.  Thanks, Mom.

My Grandma Pete:  I loved spending time with her, whether we were visiting her at home or at her cabin.  She tried to make it fun for all of us.  I have many great memories of things she has done in my life.  I loved telling her when the apple trees were blooming.  Thanks, Grandma.

My Grandma R.:  I loved to go visit Nana as a child.  She makes the best cookies and sloppy joes.  I also loved having her and Pop-pop visit at our home, snapping beans and listening to her talk or sharing Christmas Day with her.  Thanks, Grandma.

Nannie (Jeff's Grandma):  I love to listen to her stories of when her kids or grand kids were young.  Thanks for sharing, Nannie.

Donna:  My mentor from church.  Thanks for meeting with me and being my friend.  Having someone to talk to and spend some time with has been a treasure for me.  Thanks, Donna

Happy Mother's Day to each and everyone of you!


I enjoy hearing from my readers and reading your comments.
