Words are important to me. I love to write. And read. I think words can accomplish great things. Words can also build up or tear down.
Words are powerful.
If you've ever read the 5 Love Languages, I am definitely a word girl. And that's why finding out that I was selected by a local Chick-fil-a as their "Mother of the Year" means so much to me.
Let me say that I totally fall short of this title, but I try. Every day. Even when I don't want to, I drag my bum out of bed and do my best for my kids. Sometimes I wonder if anybody notices.
Apparently, my husband does. He nominated me and submitted an essay on why he thinks I should win.
Mother of the Year.
Four little words.
Yet they gave cause for this Mom to stand a little straighter, smile a little more, and feel okay about herself amidst all the chaos.
And to all you Moms out there. You all deserve this title too. Happy Mother's Day.
