Happy Mother's Day Mom!

It’s here upon us, that day of days,
When songs we sing and words of praise
Pay honor to the woman who
Helped make you into amazing You!
My mom sends wonder thru my head
When I think of all the ways she led
By Example in Truth and Righteousness
Generations now and future to bless.
As gardener of the land and heart,
Pruning out tares, making works of art.
Whether it be a soul or a garden great,
She tills the soil and helps cultivate.
Bringing forth grand beauty there
Planting, nurturing, words of prayer.
Taking time to pause and Celebrate
Our Master Gardener, her queenly state.
For I know I wouldn’t be who I am
Without the loving touch of this “Master’s Hand”.

Sunday is that day when we are all able to take pause and celebrate the one woman who in giving us life, also gave us wings. I know it is so for my mother. Geri Pitt. Mom has let us know from the time we were small, that you give life all you have to give. She instilled in me the knowledge of who I am, the means by which I could come to know that for myself, and in the process develop a relationship with my Heavenly Father and Savior. She has always led out by example. Example of love, dedication, service and sacrifice. At 75, she is just now figuring out that as a Great-grandma, her physical being may, and I do say MAY, be slowing down more than she would like. Her quick mind, and love of learning are ever present for all to see. As she learns, she shares. If you know her well, you know the likes of her self-mastery is rare and would be hard to find equal.
Each day to me is a new day of knowing that I was sent to this, my angel mother for a reason. In knowing her, being loved by her, I am grateful to see a glimpse of what our Father has planned for us as Eternal Families.
