My final post on honoring legacy has to be to the first woman that gave me life—my mom!
From the first time I laid eyes on her I knew that she was handpicked for me. She is not only beautiful on the outside, but she is also amazingly stunning on the inside.
My mother was the first person that taught me to care--about others and myself. You see, she has dedicated most of her life to the ministry of servicing others, either through counseling or through providing her services where it was needed. Although she is semi-retired, she continues to serve the elderly that need the love from another woman. She also taught me to care for myself; for my personal growth and my own empowerment as a Christian woman.
She taught me the value in working hard for what you want. There is no end to her days as she is the multitasking queen! Her dedication to excellence is truly remarkable; she wants things done right even if it means to start over and do it again.
When I was growing up we didn’t have many nice things. I remember having to purchase clothing and items from thrift stores but my mother would take whatever was purchased, fix it and adorn it to make it different and make it mine. I never felt that I was missing anything. She has always loved me unconditionally and has encouraged me at each key point of my life.
She is also my shopping partner. We both love to shop, we both like nice things and we both love to save money while buying nice things. She reminds me, Silvia you work hard so buy yourself the things that you like.
This post can easily become a mini-book because there is so much that I can say about my mother. She is a woman to be admired, she is a woman of excellence, a wise woman and best of all—the godliest woman I know. I am the luckiest “girl” in the world to have her as MY mom. Once again, God gave me the best and I will forever be thankful to Him for her.
Happy Mother’s Day to the most beautiful Mom in the world!
