Wife – Mother – that’s all I ever wanted to be. Year after year passed and I would remind the Lord I wasn’t getting any younger.
Finally, at age 35 I met the man who would become my husband. We didn’t marry for three years so at age 38 we would start our family.
Suddenly I found myself in the place I’d always wanted to be.
I’ve enjoyed a lot of Mother’s Days. One of them really sticks in my mind.
While I love chocolates and flowers I’m also very practical. When we lived in town we had a great front porch that had a tree next to it that was always dropping something so the porch needed to be cleaned off almost every day. The easiest way to do that was with a leaf blower but the one we had was out in the garage and so big and heavy that I couldn’t really manage it.
So my dear husband got me a little leaf blower that was small enough to store in a closet and I could easily blow off the porch whenever it needed it. My friends were all surprised that I was so delighted with my gift. I still have that little gift and use it to blow out the garage now since I no longer have a front porch.
