I was really excited to see this topic, its an easy one for me. My momma is and was amazing. She was our rock as a family. She went through a divorce when I was 8. It would've crushed me if I was her, but she stood strong.
She showed me and my little sis about the TRUE meaning of family time. She strived to make sure she spent enough time with both my sister and I. She developed loving relationships that I can say just gets stronger and stronger every time I talk to her. She illustrated how its the love of family that keeps you together, not tangible things, trips, or money. Pure love. Love.
My momma is was also very genuine. She taught me how to appreciate something in everyone, even if its really hard. She has the best spirit. I just love my momma. I'm blessed to still have my momma with me. So, what have I taken into my littles life like my momma?
The pure love. The love she showed me as a child was better then any toy she could've ever bought me. So I, in turn am working to show my littles a similar love. Show my kids that family time (especially game night, oh man, I have a lot of fond memories playing family games, with my momma) is important.
So what my momma did was instill an awesome LOVE, and unconditional LOVE for me and my little sis (and step bro and step sis too). I love you mom.
