Happy Mother's Day!

I just wanted to give a tribute to three special moms in my life that I was blessed to spend time with this weekend! There are many others but I just don't have room on the blog to put them all on here!!

Upper left hand corner is mine and angeljoy's mom. She is dedicated to our dad who has complicated health problems. I've never heard her complain about all the hard work it takes to care for him and through the years it has become harder. She appears strong through every trial. I'm sure I can speak for both of us and say we love her very much and we are better women because of her!
The top picture is of my sister-in-law. My admiration of her lies in her stamina! She has three of her own children and a stepdaughter. She quit a good paying government job to pursue a career as a massage therapist. While in school she found out she was pregnant and still she completed her schooling without missing a day and graduating with honors. She has a very strong sense of perseverance! She is still working towards the goal of massage therapist as well as raising her son and two daughters. I do not know how she keeps her house clean and the kids to school on time and lunches and dinners and laundry with no help at all.(hubby is busy working, working, working to try and support them all)!!
The bottom photo is my mother-in-law and the sister-in-laws mother. She is a very God-grounded woman and has the spirit of encouragement. Without her I would not have the kind-hearted, sweet spirited man that I am blessed to have as my husband! Her health constantly battles her to keep her down but she always seems to rise above it and continue to find ways of lifting the spirits of others!! She is a blessing to our family and works hard to stretch her time between her three children's families.
My wish to each mother who reads this blog is that you will be blessed to what you need and your families will "rise up and call you blessed." (proverbs 31

What a sweet tribute! It's so good to see my mamma. I'm missing her. She's such a good mamma. Wah! I want my mamma!
Thanks for putting her pic up there.
