This is the month we celebrate motherhood. I've got to tell you, I have a lot to celebrate. My mom was an amazing woman. In addition to raising a family she was active in her community and even wrote a weekly column for our community newspaper. Clever, creative, caring, godly and oh, so cute, she made my life fun growing up and was my best friend. Even though she was an older mother when she had me (my brothers were teenagers when I was born) she always had plenty of energy to keep up, and when I was a teenager having parties she and my dad were right there in the thick of it, enjoying the fun and games. And my friends loved it! When I was sick or feeling down, when the kids were driving me nuts, she was always there to listen. When I needed advice, she had it. (And sometimes she had advice when I didn't want it, too!) She never lost her zest for life. (I think she was eighty when I dragged her to a slumber party at my church. In her Betty Boop nightshirt she was the hit of the party and she stayed up all night yakking and playing games with us!)
But that's enough about my mom. Now I want to hear about yours!
Tell me a little about your mom (25 words or less) and at the end of the month we'll have a drawing and give one lucky a winner a $25 Starbucks gift card. Contest ends May 30th.
