The Images of Mother

I received this forward email recently that contained little tidbits and quotes about moms. Something really got to me about the piece below. Take a look...

The Images
of Mother

4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!

8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!

12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.

14 YEARS OF AGE - Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.

16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She 's hopelessly old-fashioned.

18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!

25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it!

35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.

45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

Could this stab me in the heart any more? It was interesting because when I read it, I didn't immediately think of my own children. I thought about my relationship with my own mom. I am blessed to still have her in my life and she has done so much for me and my family. I think about how I was when I was a child and I know that I went through a similar progression like above. Right now, I am definitely in the "35 Years Of Age" category. I call my mom when I need advice on the girls or if I need someone to cheer me up. She has always been my biggest cheerleader and I will forever be grateful for that.

I hope that I can do the same for my girls.

As always, you make me think!

I never truly appreciated my mom until I had kids of my own. Then I began to understand how hard she worked and her many sacrifices over the years. I also came to love her in a whole new way, because there isn't anything she wouldn't do for me or my kids. She's a wonderful mother AND grandmother, and it inspires me.

Just wanted to let you know I dropped by. I could not see your entrecard widget. This has happened on my blog before...

Have a great weekend!

I know what you mean! I just want to skip over that part when my girl thinks I don't know anything. Unfortunately, we're in that right now!

At least I've got three out of four that still think I'm super. ;-) Pretty accurate list.
