Day of the Mother

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mother’s out there.

Are you spending time with your Mom today?

Mom is one profession that does not get the praise it deserves.
Being a mom is the hardest job.
Because you are always worrying about your kids.
My mom must have had lots of worrying.
I have been rather independent.
I moved out into my own place before I was 18.
Even before that.
I was born with Cerebral Palsy, so my mom had to sit through a few surgeries.
I wouldn’t want to have to be the mom there.

And I’m only one out of 4 kids!

That makes me glad I only have one when it’s put that way. haha

Did you ever say,
OMG I just sounded like my mom just then!

I have. lol
But also sometimes I literally sound like my mom.
I hear her voice when I sing at times.
Mostly gospel songs.
Most of the times I have heard my mom sing was at church.

When I was about 12 I remember an occasion where her and I sang together at church.
We were around the piano.
I really don’t remember the song.
Just the act.

My son brought me a card he made his self this morning.
I got a Pokemon themed card.
No, I'm not into Pokemon,
But he sure is!

He is alomst as big as i am.
which is due to the fact I am so short.
But he still sits on my lap when we watch movies.
And I always have to have my arm around him.
No really, he will put it there if I don’t. :)

But I will be sad one day
when he no longer sits there.

So cherish your kids
especially today.
They won’t always be sitting on your lap
bringing you homemade Pokemon cards.

But don’t forget your Mom’s either!
I’m going to dinner out with mine later.

So today I just want to say Thank you Mom!
I love you and hope you had a great day!


  1. I post this in honor of my daughter who makes me proud everyday. Crystal you have and always will be my sunshine and all the fears and pain I have endured on your behalf is all worth every moment that I have had with you. You are never far from my thoughts each day. I too remember the times singing in church with you. The memory you have is only one of several we shared together in front of the church singing. It was something that you so desired to do and even though it killed me to sing in public I did it for you. I first of all can't sing and second of all I sure don't do it in public so that was for you. As your mom I always tried to make your life the very best I could even in times when it was bad. I am so very proud of you and when I watch you be a mom to Zack and all his craziness you are the best mom I could ever hope for for my grandson. I love you with all my heart yesterday, today and forever....

  2. Well thank you. You deffinately made me cry. I have always
    Been embarrassed to sing in front of other too. But church
    Felt like a safe place to do so. So thank you for that.

  3. You two made me cry. I love this blog very much. Your mom has always been a strong person and you diffently take after her.

  4. Hey Crystal, Loved your blog. Sometimes I just don't know what I would do with out my mom. She has helped me through so some many things. I would not be half the mom that I am today if it was not for my mom.... Here wishing you Happy Maother's Day!
