The best part about being a mother is being blessed to be one it's a gift from GOD!! Some of my biggest lesson through being a mother is learning patience, unconditional love, committment, trust, understanding and learning how to persevence...

Some of my biggest challenges are letting go.. I know that at some point you have too, but these are my babies we are talking about.. I have 4 childen two grown Daugthers and two sons 18,10...

Am just very grateful that they all hae been taught and given tools that will help them to shape their own lives and be able to make healthy choices..

I thank GOD for that lessons and blessings..
Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's out there.. It's not an easy job, but the gift of motherhood is priceless and i wouldn't change a thing.. Mother's Day is about LOVE!!!
