I'll do my Mother's Day post tomorrow after I spend the day with the biggest blessings in my life.
But tonight I wanted to post about the first blessing in my life.
I never knew that look of adoration my mama had on her face in this picture until I had children of my own.
It seems like every picture I have of the two of us she's never looking at the camera, instead she was always looking at me with the proudest "mama look" I've ever seen.
"If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been." ~Robert Brault
There has never been a quote that has described my mama more perfectly. I was so blessed with a Godly mother who loved me unconditionally, and never ever failed to pray for me.
My mama is gone now but she is still the biggest influence in my life. Thank you mama for teaching me how to love my own children (even if it means spoiling them rotten), thank you for showing me the difference between giving birth and actually being a mother. No one will ever take the place of my mom and I will never ever measure up to her. My prayer daily is to let me have the influence on my children that my mom had on me, to let my children grow up feeling as loved and adored as I did, and for me to be the example of the kind of mother they hope one day to be.
