I always try to write what I know. So, as we approach Mother’s Day, I really want to dedicate a blog to the best Mama’s I know.
They inspire me so much.
I’ve thought about my sister, our mother, and my best friends. I’ve wondered about what that special formula is; what are those qualities that they all share. How do I thank them for what I can barely define?
I see these strong Mama’s in our Hoffbrau’s
Patiently explaining through a tantrum, to an unwilling tot, why vegetables are necessary. I catch them in the bathroom, giggling and laughing through messes and mistakes.
As mine grow to adults, I remember back to the moments when I wasn’t a wonderful mother.
That these two incredible people came from it all…well its’ a miracle.
I’ve been reduced to sheer awe at the awesomeness of it all.
It was then that a friend told me about a great book and video, and as I leafed through, I realized…this is how I mothered; this is my homage to all these great women.
“You’re the child with small hands and big eyes who never stops asking for more.”
This is how I was raised; this is what I told my children. All those women I admire? They all bred strength, imagination, and curiosity. All the rest is….gravy.
Happy Mother’s Day to the greatest Mamas! And, please, tell us about yours…
