Mothers are very special people. I understand that all people do not have excellent mothers but God gave me the best. I have the Proverbs 31 woman as my mom...or at least she is pretty close. In the past three of my 25 years of life, I have come to understand the value of her, especially in my life. She is my friend and my prayer warrior. She is really great to laugh with and here is an example:
Last weekend I went to visit my parents in "Small Pebble". (My husband calls Little Rock, Arkansas that...he is so hilarious!) While we were there my mom and I went shopping at Goody's. One of my best friends is getting married next weekend and it has been a tradition for our little "college girls" group to have a lingerie party the night before the wedding. I had already purchased the "nice" pieces but was on the hunt for some "risque" stuff. Mom and I started going through the little skimpy underwear (they were having a sale) and all of a sudden my mom starts busting out laughing. She said "we must look very funny looking through this pile of "strings" (typical mom comment). Let's just say that mom and I are not your size 1 or 2 or even 8. Needless to say I found some little things to give to the bride but when I went to purchase I made sure the checkout lady knew they were not for me. Ha ha! It's always fun to go shopping with your mom and be able to laugh. I am very blessed to have a mom that I can do that with...we are truly great friends!
