Southern Common Sense Part 2

Good Morning all! Feeling a little under the weather. Hay Fever is giving me heck. So needless to say this mornings post my or may not be coherent.

Today’s Common Sense suggestion is to say thank you to your Momma.

Remember when you were little and you were sick, and your Momma was right there beside you, making sure you were okay. That is something that we take for granted. How many times as an adult have you been sick, and wished you were back home and Momma was taking care of you? I know for me, every time I am not feeling well.

My Momma is one of my biggest supporters, and now that I am older, she is my best friend. We both are still learning about life, and realizing that we do not have to believe the same things. We are very different, but also very much the same. I get my feisty bluntness from my Momma. I also get my caregiver side. She taught me how to keep a house (although mine is never as clean and tidy as her’s), how to cook, how to see people and situations for what they are not what I want them to be, and how to be thankful and grateful for every blessing in my life, no matter how small.

When I was in high school, I was a terror. I rebelled and wanted to live my own life and do what I wanted (that went over real well, I’m sure you can imagine). I made my Momma cry (that tore my heart up) but I kept doing stupid things. It was not until I moved away from home for college and started to grow up that I realized that everything my Momma did for me and taught me were lessons to protect me and help me be a happy and successful Woman. I could not imagine what kind of person I would be today without her, nor would I want to.

So say thank you to your Momma, thank her for everything she did and continues to do; for every prayer she sends up for you, and for every scolding you got.

So here is to you Momma. Thank you for teaching me how to be an adult. Thank you for pushing me to be the best that I could be and for never giving up on me, no matter what stage of life I was going through. Thank you for being a role model and a wonderful friend. I love you.

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”

Abraham Lincoln
