Today is my mother's birthday and my mom means so much and so many things to me. I have said it in many ways to her over the years in words, in cards, in FB wall posts, etc. so I thought I would share it a little differently today....
10 Things That My Mama Taught Me
#1 - When things are nuts, laughter is the best medicine......ALWAYS!
#2 - It's okay to cry....REALLY!
#3 - When you come to the end of your rope, keep holding on to Jesus for all you are worth
#4 - Integrity is vital - who you are when no one is watching
#5 - Education is SO important - Always keep learning!
#6 - Love Jesus with every fiber of your being - nothing else is MORE important than that
#7 - Listen with your heart, your eyes, your soul
#8 - Treat people with love & respect, the way you want to be treated
#9 - Age is just a number - You are only as old as you feel
#10 - Be someone that people can count on - "When I die, I want my daughters to be able to say about me, 'Mom was always the same.'"
I love you, Mom! You have taught me SO much and modeled what being a servant of Christ is. I often call you a "mothers-mother." In the dictionary, when the description of mom is listed, your character is THE LIST. I wish everyone could have/have had a mom like you!! I strive to be like that too as well as to teach other women to love as fiercely as you loved us.
Happy Birthday, Mumsie!
