Things I Learned From My Mom

Happy Mother's Day! Today is a day filled with many mixed emotions. I miss my beloved mother like crazy and this day is a reminder of her loss. But, conversely, I am so grateful that I was lucky enough to have such a loving and dynamic mother. I'm also thrilled to say that I am a mom to two beautiful, happy, and loving girls. They are special blessings in my life and they are the legacy of my own mother's love.

Over the years I learned so much from my mom. Here are just a few of those tidbits:

Everything happens for a reason.

Always be gracious and pleasant.

Do the right thing.

Be honest.

The proper way to fold a fitted sheet.

A love for reading true stories about a person's life.

Beautiful penmanship is cultivated with practice.

How to use a sewing machine.

Be strong and face adversity head on.

The art of writing a thank you note.

How to present a gift in a special way.

How to iron a piece of clothing properly.

A love for travel.

Eating out is so much fun.

How important it is to listen when people talk to you. 

Crafting skills!

She had so many special talents and she was so smart. She was the mom that others wished they had and that I was lucky to call my own. This is a day I reflect on how much I miss my mom but more important how much I love her. Happy Mother's Day. 

A little something special in my mother's memory:
