Today is a very special day for mom's to be loved, pampered, and spoiled. I wish all mothers a very special Mother's Day!
However, there is one very special lady in my life that I would like to recognize on this very special day. She was a former customer; has since become a very dear friend and close to my heart. Her name is Anita; she always greats you with a big hug, a kiss and lets you know how special you are to her. She is now retired, and works part time. She raised a large family, while running a successful business, and running a home. I use the word home instead of house, because when you walk into her home you feel all the love and kindness she has in her heart and shares selflessly with others. She is a woman ahead of her time. While running a successful business and working about 60 hours a week, then coming home, making dinner, helping her children with their school work, attending school functions, and then taking time to be a wife. Yet , when she shares with you her wonderful stories of raising her family she does not complain about the endless hours she worked, and then rushing home to make dinner, and make sure the children's homework was done, she truly enjoyed being simply a mom. The pride she has in her children is unquestionable. Yet, she is not bragging when she speaks of their accomplishments and success in life. She is merely stating the obvious.
She always puts herself last, behind her children, friends, and husband. She is a very devoted wife and mother, but yet opens her heart to others. She has an endless amount of love to give, and asks for nothing in return. Her children are all grown and very successful, but yet are truly devoted to their mom. They make sure that they visit her and help her when needed. Although, Anita seldom asks for help, she likes to do things on her own. When she talks about her husband, the love that she has for him...there are know words. She tears up when she talks about him and the pride she has in being his wife. She has an unbelievable sense of humor and when she laughs you can not help but to laugh right along with her.
I consider it a privilege to have her in my life and I hope that I am a better person because of her.
So this day is for you "Nita," for all the joy and love that you have give to others.
