Like My Mother Does

I come from a line of strong and caring women. My grandmother was my roll model in life and my mom has always been my best friend. I've learned from these two women to give 110% to my family and love with everything I have within me.

I began praying before I ever held my first daughter that I would pass on to her those qualities that I have sought after and longed to possess which made my grandma and mom the incredible women I've loved beyond words.

Yesterday my baby girl posted this video on my Face-book wall. You can bet bucket loads of tears sprang from my eyes as my heart was smiling and ready to burst.

It's my prayer that the legacy I leave for my daughters is one that speaks of a committed and caring love for the Lord and for family.

Thanks Jenna for blessing me with this song.

People always say
I have a laugh like my mother does
Guess that makes sense
She taught me how to smile when things get rough
I’ve got her spirit, she’s always got my back
When I look at her I think I want to be just like that

When I love I give it all I’ve got
Like my mother does
When I’m scared I bow my head and pray
Like my mother does

She’s a rock, she is grace
She’s an angel, she’s my heart and soul
She does it all

When I love, I give it all I’ve got
Like my mother does
When I’m scared I bow my head and pray
Like my mother does

When I’m weak and unpretty
I know I’m beautiful and strong
Because I see myself
Like my mother does

Lauren Alaina – Like My Mother Does Lyrics

Aww, G, that was a beautiful song and a sweet gift from your baby girl.

I just spent most the morning/afternoon with my parents doing corn for the freezer. This makes me thankful for that time with her!

You are leaving an amazing legacy for your daughters - I'm so glad you are blogging again! (and I promise I didn't forget about emailing)
