It's been a while since I've done a "Lessons I've Learned..." post. My mother just turned 60 on Friday, and we had a big surprise party for her. Though her silly family tried to make it a joke, my sister had put out slips of paper and they were to write something they loved about my mom. It was "60 reasons to love her". I thought this was a nice idea, and it got me thinking about lessons I've learned from my mother.
So, the next installment in my series..."Lessons I've Learned From My Mother". Love you, Mom!
- Always have faith. It may sound cliche, but if God brought you to it, He'll bring you through it.
- Know how to have fun and laugh. It's important to be able to let loose sometimes!
- Every once in a while, some retail therapy is nice. Just don't overdo it.
- You are never too old for hugs from Mom!
- You may not be the best of friends with your children when they are young (especially when they are teenagers!), but you are still their mom. They still love you!
- It's very important to take some time for yourself once in a while. Whether that means that retail therapy or taking an hour at church every week to be alone with God, it's vital.
- Always be there for your kids. They may be grown up, but they will always be your babies.
Thanks for being there for me, Mom!
