THIS is a beautiful woman
This is my mother…
She has never been on the cover of a magazine, and most likely never will. But she IS beautiful! She doesn’t color her hair, wear makeup (with the exception of maybe mascara 3 times a year) or own any designer clothes. But this woman has made hundreds of pies from scratch, made thousands of healthy meals for her husband and children (at times with quite limited supplies) and folded tens of thousands of loads of laundry. She has driven countless miles toting her children to and from piano lessons, dance lessons, sports practice and church youth group. She has taught her three children how to read, write, balance a checkbook, prepare dinner, plant a garden, and generally how to be confident, well rounded human beings. She is now helping to teach most of these things to her eight grandchildren. She has been faithful, loving and devoted to her husband (my Dad) for over 35 years.
She is my mother and she is beautiful!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you BEAUTIFUL women!
