Happy Mothers Day to all moms !!!! The road wasn’t easy BUT GOD!!!!

kawanda and daughter

This picture reminds me of how close I am to my daughter. Although she is legally grown, she is and will always be my baby. The empty nest transition was hard, but along the way God’s strength, grace and mercy has prevailed and all of my greatest fears were invalid. We enjoy our space, but we still recognize the fact that we need each other and often times we usually miss hanging out with each other. This picture is one of those occasions when I hadn’t seen her, but we were able to worship together at church on Resurrection Sunday. Maybe, I am biased but I believe I have the best daughter in the world. Keyonna I love you and I am Godly proud of you!

latia and bobbyIt’s still unbelievable that you came from out of me. It’s even more astonishing that I could EVER love like this. You have taught me the true meaning of love at first sight. You are the REASON. The reason to live, the reason to give. I almost gave it all up, until I laid eyes on you. I love you, Bobby.

The Guilt Trip

mom and nik

Dear Mom,

I want to thank you for being so generous on a regular basis and taking me on a trip I so enjoy. You know the one, the one you said you would never take your kid on because your mom took you, you know the “Guilt Trip”.  I look forward to our weekly guilt trips, it reminds me that you didn’t keep your promise (you know the one about you and your mom) and that just when I thought I’ve mastered parenting, BOOM, there’s so much more to learn.  Our most recent trip down Nagging Lane because I don’t visit enough was joyful.  In the past month we’ve also flown over to Overbearing Bridge, where I did not leap off.  And if that wasn’t enough I recall you taking out your map to see what uncharted territory we had not cover, because we’ve covered a lot, and right in the middle of the map was Highway to Hell, Exit how are you raising my grandchildren.  This guilt trip map is filled with so many places we have yet to discover, YAY (major side-eye).

The other day we were starting another guilt trip and you had to run back in the house. You left the map sitting on the seat so I decided to take a sneak peak, to see what I was in store for that day.  There was tiny writing next to some places we’d visited and places we were to go.  I had to put on my glasses to view.  There next to all the places were notes from you, Mom.  Where I had clearly marked the territory Nagging Lane, was a note about how much you loved to spend time with me and my kids and that you hoped I felt the same way.  There was a picture of us at Overbearing Bridge, in that picture was a rainbow I hadn’t noticed and you captioned it “God continues to shine a light on my beautiful daughter!”  You were coming out of the house, so I quickly looked over at Highway to Hell, there was a picture of me and my kids with a note that said I truly hope they appreciate the sacrifices she is making for them.  I quickly folded the map back the way you had it before you got back in the car.  As you started to take me to Better Start Eating Right Boulevard, all I could do was smile.

Thank you, Christine Moore Sanders for the many guilt trips we have been on and those to come. I love you beyond measure and I know that you are always looking out for me.  Happy Mother’s Day!

Top 10 Things Moms Want for Mother’s Day, But You Won’t Give

mother's day top 10

  1. Peace and calm in the house. Every mom has a dream, that dream is that they will come home to a clean house that is quiet and peaceful. That all her children will be in harmony with one another.
    a. What you give: music blaring, food on fire in the kitchen, fighting with your siblings.
    b. Solution: Sit down, keep quiet.
  2.  A meal she does not have to cook that is edible
    a. What you give: Your version of Top Chef gone wrong.
    b. Solution: Keep it simple, if all you can make is eggs, just make eggs mom will love it.
  3.  A hot bath or shower.
    a. What you give: COLD WATER! You, yourself will take a long leisurely shower and use up all the hot water, when I go to get in the tub, there’s a ring of dirt and no hot water.
    b. Solution: Stay funky all day so that I can take a nice, long, hot bath
  4. Clean laundry.
    a. What you will give: All kids and some grown men do this, the smell test. If it doesn’t smell funky you will where it 90 more time, then when mom finally gets it, the smell of death is all over it.
    b. Solution: Febreze, don’t just drop that musty shirt down the laundry, give mom a floral scent to go with it or better yet, do your own laundry on your designated laundry day
  5. To be able to use the restroom alone (THIS IS A BIG ONE)
    a. What you will give: you will stand outside the door talking to mom, singing to mom, arguing with your sibling, requesting permission, knocking on the door
    b. Solution: LEAVE MOM ALONE! Make the restroom a territory in the house where mom can have a moment of peace. (moms don’t abuse the territory treaty)
  6. To walk in a store and not have you ask for something
    a. What you will give: You won’t give anything, you will expect mom to purchase all the random things you place in the cart and when she doesn’t you’ll give her a hard time.
    b. Solution: Get a job, do your chores, earn some money, that way you can buy your own stuff. And for you all under the working age, just close your eyes while we’re in the store.
  7. For you to do your chores without having to be reminded
    a. What you will give: You will either only do half the job or you will act like you don’t know how to do it
    b. Solution: Clean up the mess so mom can get off your case, and then we will all live happily ever after
  8. For the toilet seat to be put down (BOYS & GROWN MEN)
    a. What you will give: you’ll just continue to leave the toilet seat up because you will figure she should look back before she sits down anyway
    b. Solutions: Daughters, help your mom, super glue the toilet seat down
  9. For all legos all over the world to be picked up off the floor
    a. What you will give: you will build the fort just like the one on the lego box, but there will be at least 500 pieces leftover that you were probably supposed to use, instead you take the fort and scatter the pieces everywhere.
    b. Solution: Buy mom a good pair of shoes that are lego resistant
  10. For you to even out the number of times you call out mom, with the number of times you call out dad.
    a. What you will give: you will ask your dad a question and he will give you an answer, but because mom is all knowing you will hunt her down, especially in the bathroom, to ask her
    b. Solution: There isn’t one moms are all knowing, we just have to deal with it.

Just a few thoughts for your mother’s day shopping spree. We still love your macaroni art and CASH is always welcome.  We love you and thanks for making us moms!  It’s all in love and laughter.
