Happy Mother’s Day – Shannon in Kansas City

Happy Mother’s Day to all you fabulous moms out there.  I respect and admire your capacity to love and your devotion.  I know that there are exceptions but I am going to take a minute to focus what’s positive and typical.  Everyone loves their mom.  If you win an Oscar you thank your mom, if you get on the “Price is Right” you say “Hi Mom”, if you get arrested most of us will call mom.  Your mom is a constant throughout your life.  She’s been there through everything, even things you were too young to remember.  Moms are a real blessing.

I am so fortunate to have Lillie Mae Patrick French as my mom.  She’s a great lady.  No one has invested in me or believed in me the way she has.  My mom is a rock solid woman who’s word is as good as gold.  If she says something you can trust that it is true and that promises will be kept.  No on has ever stood up for me or protected me the way my mom has.

My mom is truly one of the nicest people in the world.  She is generous, not only with me but with other people too.  I am very blessed to be a witness to her life.  My mom has taught me to work hard, to stand up for myself, to be a lady, to be independent and to love God.  If I had to be born again and pick a mom again I would pick the same one.
