Lovely Lady

Who's that Lady? That lovely lady? That's my Mom! The mother of ten children. A wife of nearly 53 years, and a fantastic cook. My sweet sister took her in for a little spruce, which everyone one needs here and again, and she looks FABULOUS!!! I found this cute little poem that makes me think of my mom.

50 cups of Love
1 cup punishment
15 1/2 cups caring
4 1/2 cups helpfulness
3 tablespoons hugs & kisses
1 teaspoon sadness
3 cups of cheerfulness
1 cup fun
20 cups caringness

Mix all together and add some Sugar for sweetness then pour into mom maker, in 15 min you have a 99% Mom Because no one is perfect <3

I really love the ending it reminds me of my mom's wit which she lovingly passed down to all her daughters. She also gave us strength and courage to face all of life's many bumps. She taught us to smile when being teasded and then gracefully tell them to "eat rocks". I honestly, think that was her favorite expression when dealing with people who were not very nice :) I don't think you ever stop learning from your parents. Whether its learning what doesn't work for you or watching two people grow more in love as they enjoy their autumn together. All lessons are still being received.

Thank You Mom for continuing to teach some of life's most important lessons to me.

Next Lesson:
Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
