I couldn’t let Mother’s Day slip by without showing my gratitude to the two great examples of what being a caring mom is all about!
Of course there’s my mom who is caring, kind, strong, and giving to a fault. She’s dedicated, dependable, supportive, and thoughtful. She listens earnestly and gives great advice (even when she knows I might not take it!), she’s beautiful inside and out. She loves her grand-kids as if they were her own children (sometimes I think she forgets they’re not!). Her actions have shown me over the years what it means to be a good mom even though it’s not always easy. She’s the kind of mom you want to be like not the kind you learn what not to be like.
Then there’s my grandma, the person my mom gets her good character from! The most beautiful great-grandma I know! A person that hasn’t let a hard life harden her heart or keep her from dreaming. Someone that sees all that’s right in the world even when it’s easier to see all that’s wrong. Dedicated to her family and as thoughtful as can be. Sweet, loving and kind. You could never say enough good things about her because she’s one of the most selfless and kind-hearted people I’ve ever met.
On this Mother’s Day as I reflect on being a mom, all of the qualities I’d like to have as a mom and what an important role it is, I’m thankful to have not one but two great role models of what being a wonderful mom looks like. I hit the jackpot with these two!
