Hello, I’m the Preacher’s Daughter. I’m also web mistress, blogger, writer, Southern Belle, natural redhead, daughter, big sister, aunt and the list goes on and on. One thing I will never be is a mother. I have something called POF (premature ovarian failure). That means that the probability of my conceiving a child is about .02 in a million. So if you are a mother, consider yourself blessed and take very good care of your little ones. You’re lucky to have them.
My mother has always been an inspiration to me, even though I don’t think I’ve ever told her. I do love and admire her very much. She has been the dutiful pastor’s wife for about 25 years now and I believe she has enjoyed every minute of it through good times and bad.
She is a loving & caring mother, wife, musician, singer, minister, teacher & leader. She has an adopted five year-old boy to take care of, the Preacher to deal with daily, one daughter with a one year-old son that she’s always happy to babysit, and her first-born (me) that she has to pray for constantly. It makes me dizzy just thinking of all that she does to help care for her family and friends.
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful mother, and wonderful grandmothers, aunts, friends and a little sister. The women in my life have taught me so much and I pray that I am able to inspire someone as they have inspired me.
In these hectic times of instant grits and instant coffee, we all need to remember those mornings sitting in the kitchen with our mothers, grandmothers, sisters and aunts sharing a real breakfast and a cup of fresh coffee. Those are the times when we were able to hear of stories past and share our hopes for the future.
Enough of that mushy stuff. Have a great mother’s day, and don’t forget to thank mom for not using a condom that one time.
