Who Is Your Woman of the Year? My MOM of course!

Tonight I'm relaxing in the... well I won't say where but this is a quiet place where I read :) I'm reading the question Glamour magazine asked their staffers and I'm suddenly inspired to write.While I admire our first Lady Michelle Obama and adore all the ladies in my life who are some of my biggest cheerleaders there is no denying that my mom is the greatest woman on earth. This chick is my go to for everything. This isn't because she tells me what I want to hear or always comes at me from a mothering point of view (MPOV) but because I can say that she lives what she preaches. She demonstrates forgiveness even when I want to lash out at the individual/s who in my eyes have wronger her.

My mom has never accepted anything less than my very best. This expectation coming from a woman who raised four children mostly as a single mom and didn't enter college into a few years ago. She has dealt with hearing loss, being diagnosed as dyslexia, domestic violence and still managed to not only be fabulous on the outside but have a heart for people to be healed, fulfilled and living their best GOD life. Today is another's Mother's Day like post. A few short paragraphs to shoutout the woman who gave me life, my good genes, wide hips, introduced me to Christ as in Jesus, allowed me to spread my wings and fly and who loves her children as if they were still the young kiddos whose mouth she wiped, food she prepared on Saturday night for Sunday evening dinner after church as a family and will drive 6 hours at the drop of a hat when she is informed one is ill.

There will never be another natural haired Queen named Rev. C. Francis! She may not be known worldwide but her work for the Kingdom of heaven will reach far and wide. Dear Momma, don't ya know I love you sweet lady?!
