In honor of Mother's Day on Sunday, this post is all about one of my most favorite humans … my mama!

Wife, daughter, sister, friend, Mama, Grammy … these are some names she goes by.

Gosh y'all, she is just the best.
She loves the Lord & puts Him first before anything she does.  And boy, don't ask her to pray for anything unless you REALLY want it because when she prays, she prays!!  It's as if she just sits right down beside Jesus & has a conversation with Him.

She's just as beautiful on the inside as the outside.  A heart of gold!

She taught me to keep God first in my marriage, my hubby second, my children third & everything else after that.
She loves so big but y'all, when it comes to her grandbabies, she loves REAL BIG!  I'm pretty sure .. no, I'm positive, that she would say being a Grammy is the best thing ever.
She is the first one I call for everything.
The one that while we are out, it never fails, we have a full blown conversation while reading signs as if we know what we are talking about.
The one that totally gets my jokes .. even when we are the only ones who think they are funny.
The one that calls or texts me & asks if I am okay when in fact I'm not but I had not told her before she called me.  It's like she has known me my whole life or something .. !
 She's the mama to me, my brother & sister that I want to be to Cooper, Millie Jo & Ellie Joy.  And if I'm at least half of that, I'll call that a win.

She is our biggest cheerleader!
Although, she will tell you in a heartbeat if she doesn't think what we are doing is a good idea .. which secretly, we all love because she just knows what's best.  
She's been praying for this man of mine since I was a little girl.  And goodness gracious, she must've known even back then that he would need lots of prayer to put up with me! 😉 These two aggravate & give each other such a hard time & keep us all laughing.  They have been working together since January & I love that they have this opportunity!
She's funny.
Like seriously, hilarious!
She has a song for everything … granted it may be a song from an old church hymn but you say it & she is going to sing it.
She's the biggest cut up at any family gathering we have.  Speaking of which, she LOVES those things!

Anyone that knows her, loves her.  It's just hard not to.

Happy Mother's Day, Mama!
I love you!!
