Friday Inspiration: My Mother (in honor of Mother’s Day)

11 May

So, I was probably raised by the most awesome Woman on the planet. She's pretty EPIC! She taught me how to be a lady, how to love people that were hard to love, how to cook, and how to respect myself . She instilled so many life lessons and values into me, its hard to keep track of them all. From the time I was 6 years old until 12 years hold my parents cared for foster children. It was a wonderful life changing experience. One that has inspired me to adopt a child when I get married some day. My Mom is the type of woman that if you are in her house and see something you like she will give it to you (with exception of a few of her antiques). She is without a doubt the most giving woman I know. Her and my father made sure we understood that nothing is owed to us and that its more important to give and expect nothing in return. I could have not asked God for a better mother. In honor of Mother's Day here are a few of my favorite "Carrie-isms" (my mom's name is Carrie). I love her so much! If I am half the mother to my children as she is to me, I will be a darn good one!


1. "Put God First"

2. "Don't chase men, let them chase you"

3. "Always keep a clean house, no man likes a nasty woman."

4. "Honey, if you can't stand up for yourself no one else will….wipe your tears and fight"

5. "A horrible situation can turn around in 24 hours. That's the brilliant thing about life"

6. "Sweetie your day couldn't have been that bad. Just look at how Arnold Schwarzenegger humiliated Maria Shriver, now that's a bad day".

7. " Honey all men are goofy, you just have to find the one who's goofiness doesn't get on your nerves"


Happy Mother's Day Mama!
