A Sig Blessing

Today I am counting my blessings because I am:

The daughter of a wonderful, generous mother who taught me more than she will ever know.

The wife of a patient, understanding man who has encouraged and loved me unconditionally for 33+ years.

The daughter-in-law of a supportive and loving mother-in-law who saw beyond my faults.

The mother of four amazing children of whom I am incredibly proud. I am astounded that God gave them to us to raise.

The mother-in-law of a son-in-law who gives us much joy by the way he loves our daughter.

The informally adopted mother of others who have, in some way, attached themselves to my heart.

While visiting my 90 year old mother-in-law today I spotted the following in one of her books:

No other success in life – not being President, or being wealthy, or going to college or writing a book, or anything else — come up to the success of the man or woman who can feel that they have done their duty and that their children and grandchildren rise up and call them blessed.   Theodore Roosevelt, 1917

Happy Mothers Day to all those who I call Mom and those who call me Mom.

Mother and Daughter

My Mom-in-love.
