To the Women in my Life!

Real Estate Agent with Raleigh Cary Realty

Mothers Day is coming up and I am sitting here looking at my beautiful wife Amy asleep on the couch. I think she is snoring Hi to everyone! :)

Poor thing is working her tail off lately and somehow she feels guilty doing it.  She doesn't want to work this much but feels guilty doing it?  Amy gives everything of herself to whatever she is doing and that includes her family and she feels guilty because there is never enough time for her to take care of everything. Somehow, the majority of you women are just wired that way:)

Anyway, I just look at her and think of our life full of sharing with each other and how she puts up with this family of boys (yes that includes me) and realize what a lucky man I am. There is no other person I could have this life with and I am so thankful for her.

   (Amy and son Austin)

Now, if most men were working as much as Amy and did not want to... they would just be mad at the world because they had to work so much. It is a good thing men do not think on so many levels, most of us men just couldn't live with ourselves if we blamed ourselves for everything we did wrong let alone added stuff it to it. We have a short memory thank goodness. Look at our history:)

Then there is my mom. She cannot help but look at me and blame herself. Poor thing.

That is supposed to be a joke just in case you do not know that so insert laugh here:

I digress again; I am Definitely Thankful for her! Mom gives everything she has and that is why she does not have much when it comes to material things but has a life full of friends and family. Somehow she never runs out of opinions though, another attempt at humor if you see this mom.

I just wanted to write this to say I love both my wife and mom and I am truly thankful for them!

I also want to thank so many women who have helped shape my life and been there when I needed them from teachers, family and friends!! 

A true Happy Mother's Day wish to all of you!! 

Note:  I wrote this note last night in Facebook and just thought I would share it on Active Rain since I have not been on here sharing as much as I would like to lately!

George, very well written.  Many times women don't receive the gratitude they deserve.  They are more powerful than men think and take them for granted more than they should.

Thank you both!  I do not show her gratitude nearly enough!  She probably rather me left the snoring part out but it just showed how exhausted she was.
