My Rock

Hey Blogsville...

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all the mothers out there! Being a mother is a full-time job that you do not go to school for, do not get a degree for; and no amount of practice, baby-sitting or even words of knowledge from experienced mothers can prepare you for. My Mom and I have our off days like every other mother n' daughter but I know for sure that I won't be where I am today if not for her, and the sacrifices she made. I won't elaborate.

But for all you endured during the ten year wait before u bore me...I say thank you.
For the smiles you wore so that I didn't see the pain...I say thank you.
For depriving yourself so that I had the very best...I say thank you.
For always having ur arms and heart waiting to receive me when the world shut me out...I say thank you.
For always having positive words when the situation was as negative as can be...I say thank you.
For teaching me the importance of family...I say thank you.
For helping me believe in myself...I say thank you.
For not faltering in ur love for me when I said u weren't my mom...I say thank you.
For spanking me and knocking sense into my head when I got rude...I say thank you.
For taking my crap when I have mood-swings...I say thank you.
...I could go on and I would, because am going to be eternally grateful to you; for being you. Strong but soft at heart, humble beyond words...always putting everyone's needs ahead of yours...and above all a woman after God's heart.

Love you Mom,

PS: Guys, I have two finals this week, and a research paper due by weekend so I might not be able to update for a while...but with my addiction to B'ville dnt be surprised if u see an update or a comment here n' Goodluck to everyone with finals...and y'all have a spectular week. Stay positive and kick-a** in whatever you do; school, job, business...watever. And put God first and every other thing will fall into place.

True, nothing can prepare us for motherhood. Except for maybe watching / remembering our own mothers.
