From: Things We Forget and Pinterest
Yesterday, the boys had a treat. It was granny’s birthday, and she chose to come spend the afternoon and dinner time with us! She never ceases to amaze me.
I am amazed because she is still young at heart with a joy over balloons and cupcakes. Our boys were excited she brought them to share too. A good friend of hers is a talented baker so it was a delicious dessert vs. my store bought potential. We enjoyed burgers on the grill thanks to my sweet husband, and our simple chips, pretzels, and cupcakes on the side.
Sweet things make for smiles. Desserts like kindness are a mother’s work often. We work to make others happy. Sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail, but the Father shapes our work daily. Some women work in careers outside the home, but ALL mothers work inside the home with their children. I’m thankful my mother taught my sister and I the value of hard work in and outside the home. She truly was and still is a “super mom.” We have big shoes to fill, but we have a great faith in God that she and our father taught us to rely on. Working as a mother, is a joy when the Father rules your heart.
Children, do what your parents tell you. This is only right. “Honor your father and mother” is the first commandment that has a promise attached to it, namely, “so you will live well and have a long life.”
Mom, thank you for teaching us to honor and respect you, dad, and our Heavenly Father. We are teaching our boys to do the same. Generations are blessed by hard work, love, and faith in our Father, God. He created you and me to be something wonderful…Mothers.
