Thursday Thirteen

In honor of Mother’s Day this week, I thought I would do my 13 on:

13 Good Things My Mother Has Given Me:

1. My nails

2. My nose.  Not that I like the size or shape, because I don’t, but I do like to smell. 🙂

3. My intellect

4. My sense of humor

5. She taught me to pray without ceasing

6. My need and love for God

7. My desire for a clean house

8. My ethics and desire to do right

9. My honesty

10. My bargain shopping abilities!

11. My love of music

12. A desire to give to those less fortunate

13. Life

    Being able to smell is a great thing indeed 🙂 My mom always said that laughter will get you through anything. She’s right. My sense of humor is one of the greatest things my mom gave to me, too.

    Wonderful list!!!! Your mom sounds like a fabulous person.

    Great topic!

    This is what I was planning to do, but ended up going with quotes on mothers and motherhood. I didn’t realize there were so many good ones out there. I could have gone on for days! 🙂

    Let’s see if this goes around the world for Mother’s Day!!
    Prettiest Moms! YOU ARE ‘HIT’!
    Prettiest Moms on my Friends list! Once you have been hit, you have To ‘hit’ pretty Moms. If you get ‘hit’ again, You will know you are REALLY pretty! So ‘hit’ pretty moms on your friends list to let them know they are pretty.
    Before I was a Mom I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
    I didn’t worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
    I never thought about immunization.
    Before I was a Mom – I had never been puked on. Pooped on. Chewed on, Wet on.
    I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
    I slept all night.
    Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests. Or give shots.
    I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
    I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
    I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
    Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn’t
    Want to put them down.
    I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn’t stop the hurt.
    I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
    I never knew that I could love someone so much.
    I never knew I would love being a Mom.
    Before I was a Mom – I didn’t know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
    I didn’t know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
    I didn’t know that bond between a mother and her child.
    I didn’t know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.
    Before I was a Mom – I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
    I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
    I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.
    Send this to someone who you think is a special Mom. I just did! This says it all! I also leave you this with love:
    Enjoy your special day! ~~Hugs~~

    What a wonderful tribute to your mom. Sometimes mom’s don’t realize just how much of an influence they are in other’s lives. We are so blessed to be moms. :o)
