Dear Mom Who is My Daughter - Apron Strings & other things

Dear Mom, who also is my daughter,

     I have for so long been a fan of yours. I have celebrated your accomplishments, cheered you on through difficulties, prayed over you through illness. I now watch as you embrace this role of motherhood and it takes my breath away.

     I remember so clearly the days when your bright eyes and impish grin could charm the socks right off me. Wasn’t it only yesterday you were tossing that pretty little head of yours while standing with hand on hip, determined to do things your way?

    Now I hear you reassuring your own little one with words and gestures I once used with you. I see your eyes light up as you celebrate a milestone with your own sweet babe, just as mine did once upon a time.

     Motherhood is amazing, and so are you. Motherhood is full of joy, and you bring joy to many. Motherhood is downright tough, but so are you. Motherhood is worth it, and so are you.

     To survive this amazing, joyful, tough journey of Motherhood and to be successful at it, look not to yourself, you’ll come up short. I always have when I looked to me for the answer. Look to the Lord. He’ll sustain you, strengthen you, grow and mature you. HE is sufficient for all your needs and the needs of your children.

     I love you with the Love of the Lord, with the Love of a Mother. Your children will rise and call you Blessed.

Mom

    I first became a mom at age 23, and have 4 sons and 4 daughters in law and 7 grand children and my life is wonderful, hubby and I have been married 48 years and I would not trade our life together for anything
