A Mother's Day Tribute

First a little tribute to my mother. My mother is Colleen. She is beautiful and smart. She has a wonderful sense of humor. She has sacrificed her whole life to raise children and give them what they need. She is wonderfully affectionate. She is a great friend and teacher. She is a wonderful Nana. Mother, I love you. Mother, I do. Father in Heaven has sent me to you. Thank you for everything mom!

Now, to my second mom, Trent's mom. I am so blessed to have you in my life. You are strong and cheerful andstylish. You are so giving. You have always made me feel loved and accepted. You are an amazing Grandma! I especially want to thank you for raising such a wonderful son! Terrie I love you.

I want to wish all the mothers a happy mother's day. To all the mothers whose bodies have been forever changed from pregnancy and nursing. To all the mothers whose clothes have been smeared with spit up, snot, tears, and dirt. To all the mothers who kiss boo boos and pet the sweaty head of a child scared by a nightmare. To all the mothers who love being pregnant and all the ones who still wonder how they ever got through pregnancy. To all the women who are mothers already in their hearts if only their bodies would cooperate. To all the grandmas who relieve the mothers when they are tired enough to cry. To all the mothers who took a child in who needed a mother and loved them like their own. To all the women who have sacrificed careers for the noble calling of mother only to be called "only a homemaker" or to have said "she doesn't work." To all the mothers who work and raise children all at once. To all you mothers out there, you are brave, strong, and hard workers! Happy Mother's Day!
