People who know me well know how close I am to my mother. She is a woman people can only wish they had in their own life. She had only two wishes for her children growing up....... One they are god fearing.... Two they can take care of their own person. Those who know my family know the heart break she must have with her children. She still loves us all, never judges us and gives us little bits of advice.
Some of the words my Mom says often I sure came from her mother and I know I say them and one can only hope my daughter will say them too. ---Treat others how you would want to be treated. Give and expect nothing in return because it's the right thing to do. Every mother crow thinks their baby is the blackest. These are some of my favorites. I often hear them when I make choices. I give to charity, I volunteer when I can, I try my hardest to do the right thing.
Last week was Vacation Bible School at my church. The kids would yell out Fear Not every time God was mentioned. They also learned a lot about how God provides and about God sighting. I didn't go to the instruction but I was at the church all week. I sat in chapel sang the songs and even joined in a devotion of the VBS staff.
Well following my mama's advice I gave away cloth diapers to a new mama, I had my brother who is homeless over for dinner, I help my friend with her four kids so she can get through school and I have very little my self to help anyone out with. I have been off work for ten months now. I have collectors calling me but some how God provides for me. I have wonderful people helping watch my children while I get my family use to me working full-time again, I found $20 this week I used on gas for my empty tank, my husband was offered a job making $18k more a year than he currently makes and my neighbors brought me over a box of canned food. I expected none of this but I am sure thankful for all of it.
Two things to be thankful for is my Mama and all she has taught me and God for providing daily bread to us.
