Life.

It's just how it is.

Thank you. #202

I am thankful for moms.

Sounds simple, right?

But it’s more.

I am thankful for my mom. For all of the things she fought for. All of the things she gave up. All of the things she missed out on. All so that my brother and I wouldn’t miss out.

I am thankful for a mother in-law who treats me like she has known me my whole life. Who will hug me and tell me she loves me and then call me out when I am in the wrong. Who will go above and beyond because it is how she was made and that is how she believes it is meant to be.

I am thankful for the women in my life who aren’t moms but step into the roll in a child’s life because caring for others is ingrained in their heart.

I am thankful for the extra mom that I have gained as a part of my extended family.

I am thankful for the moms who are a great support in my life. I can’t imagine getting to this point in my life without them. They have been a greater blessing than they will ever know.

I am thankful for the moms who have guided that people in my life to be who they are today.

 

It is with a sad heart that I share that a friends mother in-law is expected to pass soon. She, her husband and other family and loved ones have gone to be with her in her final moments. I would like to ask that those reading this send out a prayer or good vibes to this Mom and to her family in this moment. I would also like to ask that as a tribute to this Mom that you share your love with your mom. A hug, a phone call, a prayer, good vibes. Whatever you are able just to say thank you for everything she has given to you. I know mothers day is soon approaching but you never know what life will bring so please don’t wait. Besides I am sure your mom would love to hear it twice.

To my mom, thank you. I love you.

To my mother in-law, I am truly blessed. I love you.

To both of my sister in-laws, I love you.

To my my chosen family mom. I love you.

To all of the other moms (and moms at heart) who bless my life, thank you.
