Happy Mother's Day! God has given us this beautiful gift of life through our parents. Our mothers have given up so much of their time, and devoted their hearts to raising us as children in the name of the LORD. They have raised us to know HIM and live for HIM. They have given us life on earth through peaceful hugs, comforting wisdom, funny nags, and protecting advice.
In honor of Mother's Day, I would like to share some words of wisdom from a mom I know:
|Cody's Great-Grandma Swedin with her grandson and great-grandsons|
"Drive Safely! You don't need to race anybody. Just take your time driving."
"Watch out for deer and just be careful"
"You need to just treat yourself and go get a massage. Just treat yourself."
"Did you take anything yet? Sometimes I just need to throw up and take some tylenol. It's not going to hurt anything."
"Just tell them you're tired and go in the other room and go to sleep... You don't need to stay up all night with your friends. You'll still be there to play in the morning."
"Mhhmmmm... Yep yep yep yep... Just say, (fill in the blank with word-specific and necessary advice) and they'll understand."
"Just send them an email."
"Don't slip on the ice."

*I also still get lots of kisses and hugs, and spanks on the butt. even as an adult.
