GRATEFUL HEART MONDAY

Hi it has been 10 days since my last post.  I took a little rest to come up with some ideas for upcoming posts and let me be honest, I didn't come up with many.  It was a good time off after the blog-tember challenge.  I didn't do much during those 10 days it was a pretty relaxing week.

Today I decided to join in on the Grateful Heart linkup with 
Grateful Heart w/ Ember Grey

What am I grateful for this Monday?

So many things but today I will just share one.  I am grateful for my Mom.  She is the strongest woman I have ever met and I am please that I can call her Mom.  Her life has been hard and thank God she has overcome it with him along her side.  She became a widow when she was 27 with 3 children ages 11 months, 2 and 3 years-old.   She says she wanted to die too, she didn't want to go on.  After 5 years of no sleep and a liquid diet she realized that God hasn't taken her for a reason and she had to be here for her children.  She raised them and a few years down the road met my dad and well, here I am now.  Her story is a sad story that I wish I could share the details with you but she didn't allow me to and I want to respect her wishes.  I hope to be able to share it with you one day because it is a story worth hearing and seeing how God was always walking along side her.

My Mom is a loving caring woman not only to her children but everyone who goes to her house.  Always wanting to feed everyone, she is very hospitable.  She definitely has the gift of hospitality, a gift that I certainly do not have and wish I did.

Thank you Lord for allowing me to have such an amazing Mother.

What are you grateful for?

Thanks for stopping by
I hope you are having a lovely Monday
