Tomorrow is Mother's Day! I hope everyone remembered to get their mother something, at least a card. And/or will at least remember to call them and tell them how much you love them. I sent two cards to the most important women in my family: my mother and my great grandmother. I could not be the woman I am today without them. I plan to also plan to tell my Godmother (even though I forgot her card) that she has and always be an amazing influence on my life.
Mother's Day isn't just a day to get gifts and cards for the women who were there for us all our lives. Nor should it be the only day of the year that we treat them special. It's just the one time designated to honor them for their hard work and dedication.
This Mother's Day, I want to give a shout out of love to some of the women I'm blessed to have in my life and have known for so long:
Bonnie Mouhart - my great grandmother
Ava McDaniel - my Godmother
Sandie W. - my "Grandmother" who adopted me in like family and always listens
Sue Lounsberry - my mentor
Jean Wombough and Dawn Walton - encouraging Christian voices reminding me to walk in God's ways
These women aren't all related by blood, but if I picked my family, they would be among them.
