You Are Mom, Hear You Roar

On the day set aside to honor and esteem mothers, I’d like to give a web “shout out” to all the mamas out there. You juggle everyone’s health and happiness minute by minute, day after day. You’ve eaten hundreds of cold dinners and re-heated too many cups of coffee, you’ve listened to the Frozen soundtrack on repeat, and discovered sticky fingerprints in unimaginable places. You’ve washed countless loads of laundry, lost multiple months worth of sleep, and kissed enough grubby boo-boos to probably have typhoid. You are like Sisyphus, pushing your stroller uphill mile after mile. You’ve learned to tune out immature tantrums, and they’ve learned to tune out yours. You’ve suffered public embarrassment, carried many tons of groceries, and wore a gracious smile. You’ve won hard-fought battles and lost your temper. You are wonderful. You are flawed. You are unceasing.

And their hearts beat only for you.

Be blessed on this day and everyday.

    Got to go to Church with Grandma Cora.Uncle jim sat beside her with his arm around her and I thought of dad’s big old arm. She is aging and had a frog in her throat as she did the children’s sermon. She had to have a microphone for her voice to carry. Jessica had her gallbladder out a week or so ago. She had so many gallstones they couldn’t count them. She drove herself to the hospital as Scotty was in bed and her mom was babysitting Canon. Amy and the kids went to mom’s and ate today as Josh was working. I felt good when I was able to subtract better than Amy but that is what having 5 kids will do to you and homeschooling. I am so proud of her. She says she likes to go to the barn and milk the cow because she has some peace and quiet. Katherine and i are going to try to make a princess dress this week, she is a very talented girl. I wish you a happy mother’s day.I remember how good you were to fold the clothes when you were small.I love all the pictures that you post of your family. I don’t feel so far way from you. love to all of you and hope you enjoy this day…… Aunt Susie
