Mom, You Are Awesome

April 19, 2017 18 Comments

No lipstick and heels for me this week. Mostly sweat pants and sick kids. Although today I upgraded to jeans and a messy bun. I might not be runway material, but my kids were impressed. 😉  <3 

Mom, You are Awesome

Mom, you are awesome.
Awesomer than awesome.
You are the awesomest.

You wore those jeans,
Sported that bun,
And somehow still impressed.

They loved your look,
Even complimented.
They took you by surprise.

Their love was genuine,
Simple yet sweet,
The unadulterated kind

You felt tired,
Dirty, and worn.
Much left to be desired,

But they saw beauty,
Gentleness, and love.
Clearly their eyes admired.

Don’t look in the mirror,
And shake your head,
The next time you get ready.

The love you pour,
Into each life,
Is notably beautiful already.

Mom, you are awesome.
awesomer than awesome.
You are the awesomest.

Little eyes don’t hide,
Their love inside.
To them, you are the best.

Hope you all are having a great week!

Lipstick or sweatpants? What little things have made you smile today?

Mom You Are

    Keeping with that word, what an awesome poem❤ It is so sweet and tells how true it is that little kids do think their Mom is the best! I know the M word gets used more often than the D one in our house! I got to admit I am not wearing sweatpants today. Seeing some ladies I have not seen in a while sure made Me smile. Doing good this week, Wednesday afternoon already , yay! I hope kids are feeling better. I love the Mom and daugther in photo, the little girl is so happy to be hand in hand with her Mom. Take care Jessica, hugs, Terri.💗

    What a wonderful post. Nothing wrong with sweatpants and buns – that is real life. Love the poem. I was not so great from yard work when I found 2 pictures of me, taken by my husband, on my camera. Old jeans, garden hat, trying to get that honey bee out of my hair. Ha

    Can I just say thank you? I don’t have sick children at the moment (thank heavens!) but my father in law is in hospital. We almost lost him on Easter. He’s coming good; but this week the normal routine has been disrupted by a fair few hospital visits and quite a bit of worry. I feel like the house has been neglected. And while I know this poem is about how beautiful we are to our children, it was just what I needed to remind myself that the acts of service I’m giving my mother in law and husband by sitting with my father in law in hospital are more important than making sure the dusting is done and the laundry is up to date.
