Energizer Bunny's Mommy Reports: Met my Mama yet?

Met my Mama yet?

This post is dedicated to my role model.

You know what its like when you hear a word and you automatically associate it to something? Well for me, each time I hear the phrase 'Woman of Substance' my mind (and heart!) immediately say 'Mama' and if you knew my Mother you would know it is true.

My Mama is more than just a mother, she's my friend. Someone I respect, look up to, admire and love with all my heart. She has put her daughters needs (just 2 of us- my little sister and self) before her needs and now with Bunny girl around, she's on top of the list!

My recollections of my mother growing up are those of a very hardworking lady who would make sure she waited at the bus-stop till our school bus arrived, run down the road to be an amazing Recruitment professional at the Manpower Resources Agency, run back in the afternoon to make sure she was there to pick us up after school, feed us a hot lunch and then run back to work. I remember there were nights, after giving us our dinners, she would be so tired, she wouldn't have the energy to eat dinner. She'd just have a mug of hot milk and dip cookies into it.

As a child I would always wonder why Mama would always fall asleep right after a movie as a Mother I understand how tired she was.

As a child I would always wonder why she needed to escort us everywhere we went. We never got to go anywhere as a Mother I understand she wanted to keep us safe and protected.

As a child I would always wonder why family prayer was a must and why she would keep saying "A family that prays together stays together" as a Mother I see how important it is to train up a child in the way she should go because when she grows older she will know the right paths to take. (Proverbs 22:6)

As a child I would always wonder why we needed to eat all those veggies and fruit shakes(yes all the yucky stuff to a child) as a Mother I see myself doing the same thing for Elisa and know it was to make sure we grew up to be healthy children with strong immunity.

As a child I would always wonder why Mama would always be on our case to study, study,study and why she'd say "An education is something nobody can take from you" as a Mother I understand how important it is to ensure a good education is provided for your child. Today with a Masters degree in hand I know, by His Grace, I can stand a step confidently in the corporate rat race.

As a child I never understood Mama a Mother I understand today and thank God we were blessed with the best Mother ever.

Happy Mother's Day Mama. We love you so much.

Proverbs 31:28 Her children rise up and call her blessed
