Yesterday was Mother's Day! I had an awesome weekend with my family. I am so blessed to have them in my life. I have a relationship with them that I never got the chance to have with own mother, both of them. I have the kind of relationship I wish I could have had with my mother. And with each passing year that Mother's Day comes around I grow more and more grateful for the family I have in all it's craziness, wackiness and with all it's dysfunctions.
It doesn't matter what they do or don't do. Do I care about what they do or don't do? Sure I do! But they are grown now and I have taught them everything in my finite knowledge to teach them. But now, they are in the hands of God.
I am at a point in my motherhood that I can just love my kids and love on my grandchildren all the more. Now it's not about what mommy can do for them! It's more of "Mommy what do you think I should do or shouldn't do". It does not come often but they know I am open for any questions they have.
While, we as a family, have many idiosyncrasies and dysfunctional behaviors, we love truly; we love madly; and we love deeply. We are a family that is passionate about family, and this is how we do family. This is our family and we have a darn good time together! When we get together it's just one huge party and one big happy family!
I couldn't ask for a better family than the one God has so blessed me with. I thank Him everyday for them, even though I am not always happy with them.
THE SPIRIT OF GOD HAS MADE ME;
THE BREATH OF THE ALMIGHTY GIVES ME LIFE!
