I am thankful for the opportunity to be a Mother, I know it is an important job, and I am thankful for the help I receive in doing it.
I am grateful for the example that my own mother set for me. I miss her dearly. Whenever I am going thru a rough spell, either with parenting or something else, I know that she would have done whatever she could, and wished she could take away my pain.
(Dec 1994, right after I became a mom, with my mom, and her mom.)
I am also thankful for the opportunity that I had to look after both my mother and my grandmother when they each became ill. It was the least that I could have done for them, after all that they had done for me.
(Yeah, and I'll try not to cry too much today. Stop it already!!)
