Mama. Such a simple word that stands for something so profound. Moms don't just bring us into the world - they walk us through it, step by step.
I remember one morning when I was in elementary school, my mama woke me up with a huge smile. In a giddy voice, she exclaimed, “I added something to the house. Can you find it?” My mama was always finding small ways to give life a little more pizazz.
It was an early morning but surprises always got me out of bed quickly. I ran around frantically looking for the surprise. As I ran passed the bathroom, I noticed five little toy pigs sitting on the top of a painting. I giggled. The pigs were each the size of the quarter and each of them represented a member of our immediate family. I loved my mom’s ability to turn even the most mundane day into an adventure.
The pigs looked pretty dang cute in that bathroom. For years to come, those pigs brought me so much joy because they reminded me of her. She taught me that some of the most special memories in life are made of just small moments and little giggles; but there is nothing small about the love they etch on our hearts.
My mama's free spirit and infectious energy brought so much joy to my childhood. This Mother's Day, I challenge you to think about exactly what makes your mom unique and special and the small ways she has brought joy into your life.
