When you can call her anytime to talk about ANYTHING
When she lets you just cry if you need to cry
When you go shopping together and she wants to buy you something ‘just because’
When she laughs hysterically with you over her grandchildren’s antics
When she listens as you vent your little heart out and then talks you back from the ledge
When she is willing to talk about the things she regrets in her parenting and admits to not being perfect and it makes you feel so much better since you know for a fact you are not a perfect parent either
When she can go from talking with you about politics to the stock market to decorating without skipping a beat
When she would have you come to visit them for a week and would make sure that she was the one who heard your kids wake up in the morning (every morning!) so that she could get up with them and let you sleep in
When she is willing to help you wrestle through faith issues and is open about her own struggles
When she supports and encourages your marriage
When she leaves sweet comments on your blog posts
When she tells you she loves you every.single.time you talk…and sometimes multiple times
When you have a mom like this…a mom who is all of these things and so much more…
You are truly blessed. And we should know.
Because we have a mom like this.
Happy Mother’s Day Mom! We love you!
