Mothers and sons really do have a unique relationship. Mothers are as much  responsible for how their sons are raised as fathers, and while it should be a  great time in your life to grow a young man, it should not be taken lightly.

Mothers are really the key to how your son will treat his wife one day! Knowing  your balance in the relationship and keeping open communication are so  important.

Really, your son is taking all sorts of mental notes about how you  react to him and others, and he is learning more than you think!

Random Appreciation-

I dedicate my whole week to the most remarkable, loving, caring, compassionate, prayer warrior, friend, confident, soldier who will celebrate another day upon this earth and see yet another day that she nor I have not seen.
 
I do not have to wait until her birthday to CELEBRATE her living above ground. Her birthday was back in November 2012 but I still honor MY MOTHER !!
 
She is the air beneath all her children, Grand children, Great grandchildren.      ” Mommy Cakes” my nickname I gave her, has been through many trials and tragedies in life, but she taught me to preservere and be what God will have ME to be!
 
So, I thought that as her daughter I am supposed to act spoiled and rotten….but indeed it is she who acts spoiled with me and even pouts if she does not talk to me at least 5 times a day!!! GEESH….Yes, but I would NOT have it any other way! Nice to have a genuine – sweet – pure – and Godly Mother / Daughter relationship…
 
It is good to dedicate your time to the person who brought you into this world AFTER you dedicate time and your Life to the one who made it ALL POSSIBLE…  >>>> GOD!
 
So indeed I do bless God he has allowed her to see another day and I LOVE MY MOMMY!

Saturday Sincerity-


wpid-20130105_114438.jpgMy son had a soccer game today and did VERY VERY well…. his team won, the score was 12 to 5 and he made 3 of the points and made 2 saves as well! I felt that things that went on with him today was full of sincerity……it was LONG OVERDUE as well.

As you can see….. my baby was on a move and a mission trying to make a play! I was / am so proud of him… it is a blessing to be able to see your kids have fun, be active and happy. He really is a good ( SPOILED ) respectful child..

wpid-20130105_115522.jpgHis father ACTUALLY CAME TO HIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, that is a great deal of exclamation points… you guys know  a few of my previous posts about the father situation… God is moving and I pray that things continue to flow….( for my son’s sake )

My son was so happy and as a mom, indeed so was I….. He came bearing gifts! ( my son has everything seriosuly….but that isnt the point! )

wpid-20130105_150607.jpgMy baby is grateful when ANYONE blesses him but when it is someone who has the ability to touch his heart strings makes him feel like he is on Cloud 9. Seeing my son baby happy ……is a feeling that I cannot describe. It is is sooooooo important for BOTH parents to be involved in their children’s lives. Sons and daughters NEED both their mothers and fathers because each party pours different things into them. That is how God intended it……this is how I would love for it to be as well.

The Other Baby….


61450_487629671287590_39576883_n

My 19 1/2 year old big baby….. my son sent me this photo a little bit ago and he looks so mature….. but his ” MOMMY VOICE ” does not match his mega tattoos and tough boy act! LOL Sometimes, he sounds more baby -ish than his  10 1/2 year old brother – he does not want ANYONE to know of course….

He is my other big baby and I just CONSTANTLY pray for some of the various decisions that he makes that may not be “so great”…. The Bible instructs parents to train up a child….. some days I have CRIED TO GOD and asked him did He revise his word because my son acts as if he has lost his way at times……GEESH!! LOL

I am STILL LEARNING how to just pray instead of just screaming and fussing at him….HOWEVER – Lord please help him! As a parent, you can tell when things are not so great EVEN WHEN THEY ARE SMILING…..

I hear things in his voice when I talk to him – but no matter what age a person is in life – we must do what is required of us, respect those who have rule over us, understand that there are rules and regulations wherever you are…..Lord thank you for opening his eyes and ears!

Happy Birthday Mommy!


It does NOT matter how and when you celebrate LIFE of the person whom you love…just make sure that you do indeed celebrate it with them!

With a great deal of  people are dying and regardless of the age, I have gone to funerals for people who were deemed to be young and healthy!

So with my MOMMY CAKES turning 73 years “younger” today – I am elated to share every moment with her!

She has taught at least 75% of what  I know and it has 75% made me into the woman I am – so she is batting really good at almost 100 and im am already almost half of her age! LOL …Nonetheless, she introduced me TO CHRIST – which was the best relationship that I will ever have!
