My Mom

"If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been."
 ~Robert Brault

How true is the quote above?  I'm already praying for the future spouses of my children & they are 3 and 4 right now!

I don't know why, but today I feel the need to tell you I have the best Mom ever.  She didn't do anything special or out of the ordinary today.  Every other day I love her just as much as I do today.  It's just she's special every single day and I don't say it enough.

She cares for my kids while I work, even when they are rotten & trust me they aren't perfect & quiet kids!
She buys gifts for everyone all of the time - we don't need gifts, but she does buy the best gifts.  She's a super shopper!
With Dad what you see isn't what you get - he looks way tougher than his heart really is, but with mom - what you see is what you get.  She's really funny, talks 100 miles a minute, she's overly compassionate, and more giving than anyone I know.
She's the most positive person I have ever met, even on the worst days she's full of optimism.
Her faith is just jaw dropping at points.
Anyone that knows her, loves her and agrees with all of the above and probably has ten things to add to my small list.

She worries about me a lot, I know she does.  She doesn't realize, or probably does realize that I worry about her too.  I worry about her and my Dad, they faced this battle once, they know this fight & I hate that they are going back in again, but they know how to do it best & they are stronger than anyone you'd ever meet.

  We have a scary road next year.  It will have peaks and valleys, but it will be a journey planned for us straight from God.  We don't yet know his purpose or his plan, and perhaps we never really know the purpose or the plan, but HE does.  I'm just so thankful we have the family & friends that we do.  We are very blessed.  So today hug your Mom.  She's your number one fan, and will worry over you until you are an old little lady - it's just how Moms are - I know because I'm a shrunken version of my Mom!

Thanks Mom for everything you do, it's over and above every expectation I have ever had & that's why you are the best Mom ever!



  1. So much of what you said here mirrors what I just wrote in my last comment!

    I love your Mama. I asked her just yesterday if I could be an honorary daughter. ;)

  2. I love your mom. She makes you feel instantly comfortable and she makes you laugh and I wish I lived closer because we would hang out a lot. You are very blessed Annie.


  3. AWW sobs on my end. I love you girls and I just do what is in my heart. AND I pray like crazy. It helps that I had an amazing example in my mom and an amazing partner in your dad.
    This baby is so loved (God loves her even more that us)He is giving us a different outcome this time... so just sit back and watch him work. I believe it to be so. Love you and this tear -inducing blog you write!!

  4. Annie, what a wonderful tribute to your mom. My mother still watches out for me from her place in heaven, I believe. Your mom's heart must be so full knowing how much she is loved and appreciated. {{Ollie}} Ann

  5. That was beautiful, Annie! I am lucky enough to have one of those moms too:)


  6. Annie, your home is wonderful. It keeps love and a magnific family.
    Ollie is a guardian angel.


Thank you so much for your kind words & support! I love hearing from you & read each and every comment you leave for me! ~Annie
