Past, Present and Future. Yesterday I listened to the best talk at church given by a man reflecting about past, present, and future women in his life that have influenced him for the better. I was so inspired and reflective on women in my own life past, present, and future that inspire me daily. I am who I am, and want to become better each day because of women in my past, present, and future.
I look forward to the future and my own daughters as Mother's. I can already imagine Catherine toting, and Alyssa organizing future children:)
For me the talk in church about past, present and future Mother's struck home in part because of my own Mother who passed away over four years ago now. She is still such in an influence in my life presently, as she was in my past. Her influence is far reaching forever. I also have Grandma's and others ancestors that play an important role in motivating me to be closer to God.
I have always known and been taught the importance of being a Mother. I always knew in my own house growing up that being a Mother was the most IMPORTANT job! It was something that I knew I wanted to be from the time I was a young girl. I learned this from not only my Mom, but from my Dad as well. I am grateful for Dad and his respect for his own Mother and my sweet Mom.
I am blessed to be surrounded with great example of motherhood all around me with friends, sisters, sister in laws, Aunt's and cousins. I am grateful for a day to be reflective on the importance that Mother's are in the world we live in today.
I am mindful of all woman who are Mother's in their heart. Woman who may not have children but who love, nurture, and lift others souls. They are Mother's in their hearts and play just as vital and important role to those around them.
I was blessed with hugs, handmade cards, and roses, and dinner. Truly the best gifts EVER!
