Over the years my relationship with my Mom went through changes as I grew up and matured (Okay... I'm still working on the mature part! hehe)… But, when I was little I needed more Care, Attention, Direction, Instruction, Discipline... as most children do. Then I become a teenager and I struggled a little as I began to become my own person, with my own views, opinions and ideas. So the limits and the boundaries that were being set in my crazy, little teenie bopper world stifled my freedom (thankfully). Because my Mom LOVES me and wanted to protect me and keep me safe (... now I'm trying to convince my little teenie bopper of the same thing) :). Then I was off to college… and I didn't see my Mom as much as I used to and I had to become responsible for making my own dinner, doing my own laundry, cleaning the house, picking up after myself, (uuuuuugh) :) getting to places on time, and giving 100% in doing my very best in school...
Well… anyway, I noticed at the ripe ole age of 42 (Eeeeeeeeeeks! ☺) and LOTSA craziness happening in our already busy lives lately, my Mom (who lives about 3 1/2 hours away) was here when I NEEDED her. She made my family meals, she loved on my girls, and she just lifted us up, supported us, encouraged us... I just felt SO incredibly Blessed and GRATEFUL for her! It’s funny to be this old, being a Mom yourself, being responsible for so MANY things and kiddos and to still have that feeling like… I STILL NEED my Mom - I don't think it really matters how old you are, how mature you are, how much your relationship has changed over time, I think there is always a part of you that will always NEED your Mom!
♥ THANK YOU MOM! I LOVE YOU! ♥
Not only was it nice to have my Mom here, during a time when I needed her – She really is AMAZING with the sewing machine!!! Look at what she made for my GIRLS, all of them – even the one(s) that aren’t HOME yet… :)
The shower curtain she made to go in the girls bathroom and the dollies she made for our little girls(s) who we just CANNOT wait to see their sweeeet little FACE(S)!!!! OOOOooooh I Just LOVE them!! ♥ I saw them first from my sweet friend Tarah! ♥ Then we found a pattern for them at http://60piggies.blogspot.com/
