ODE TO MOM

PART I

Listen to this song.  Really listen to the words.

“Now, I’m 83. ”   When I first heard this song, that made me for real, surprisingly, laugh out loud.  It’s so true.  I look back and think about all the times I wasted.  We have only a certain amount of moments here in this world and we can’t let things just slip on by.  We have to make things count.  I hate the fact that I waited so long to truly love the Lord.  I wasted time playing and doing things that can only be described as “of the devil.”  That is my biggest regret.  Other things creep up when I start thinking about–I wish I had…  but I know that I cannot bring the past back. I cannot change the past.  I can only look to the future and pray I become closer to God and better at this life.

Thinking about my mom today, I wish I had been more patient with her and told her I loved her more often.  I know she knew it, but I wonder if she ever doubted my love, because of my attitude.  We should all treasure the time we have with each other.  Don’t allow it to slip on by.  Don’t allow things to go unspoken.  Hug people!  Smile at others.  Don’t let another minute slip on by –another moment that you could be telling others about JESUS and the great things you have in life because of the many blessings that shower down on you daily.  Don’t let it slip on by!

PART II

My sweet baby girl brought this video to my attention just a few minutes ago.  This kid is hilarious!  And speaks such truth.  As mothers, let’s never forget that we are LOVED and we are APPRECIATED even though we feel worn out or even defeated at times.   Our babies do love us even though their attitudes cause us to doubt sometimes.  Remember, God made us to be servants and we should always feel honored to do the will of God!

“If every mom in the world knew how awesome they were, all the problems of this world would be fixed!” <—my favorite quote from this video!  GO KID PRESIDENT!
