Of course, I couldn't do a Mother's Day series without including my mom. Check out our interview below.
She's my rock 'ock, 'ock, ock, 'ock, 'ock, 'ock! (In my Plies voice)
1. How many children do you have?
2 girls, ages 27 and 30.
2. Did you always dream of being a mom?
Kinda, I knew I wanted children.
3. Where your children planned?
Yes, I got married older and knew I wanted to have my family complete by the age of 33.
4. How did your husband react when you told him you were pregnant.
He was very excited but he shows little emotion.
5. Did you know what you were having?
No, I'm not sure we could know at the time but I didn't want to know.
6. What are the best parts of motherhood?
Seeing my children's milestones and spending quality time with them.
7. What did your mother teach you about being a mom?
She taught me that it's not easy and there isn't a manual for motherhood.
8. What values did you pass on to your daughters?
You'll reap what you sow.
9. What was the toughest lesson you learned through parenting?
I learned that you can't blame yourself for your children's mistakes.
10. What advice would you give other moms?
Allow your children to experience failure - otherwise, you become apart of the problem.
11. What does being a mom mean to you?
It's a selfless act and you quickly realize that you are no longer independent.
12. Do you have a quote or scripture that you live by?
Yes, my favorite verse. What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? Psalm 116:12 King James Version
-What does that verse mean to you?
It's personal experience with the Lord, knowing that He was the only one who could have brought me through.
