Sunday Sprinkles Things I learned from my mom

my mom

Today is a day to celebrate moms whether you're the mom to be celebrated or you are celebrating having a mom. Now I know there are some situations where you may not have the best relationship with your mom but none the less she is the reason you are here today. I think that is enough reason to acknowledge her today. 

Through the years my mom has taught me so many things, to some they may be trivial but to me they make life more interesting and fun. I thought for the fun of it I would also let my daughters follow up my ramblings with their thoughts on Mother's Day and what it means to them. So onto my ramblings....

My mom has taught me that family is not about the blood running through veins, it is about the love flowing through your heart.

My mom taught me that sometimes you have to take the unbeaten path to get where you need to go.

She taught me that true friends are the ones who will be there for you no matter what. They will love you at you best and love you even more at your worst. They will laugh with you, cry with you, and encourage you.
mom and Pat, I can't seem to find a pic of Debbie but she has been my moms best friend for what seems like forever and I am now on a mission to get more Debbie pics

Sometimes you have to take the back seat and let your kids try something new.No matter how much it scares the snot out of you.

There are so many other things my mom has taught me but I will pass the keyboard over to my girls so they can share their thoughts of Mothers Day.

Hannah's thoughts
I think Mother's Day is a day to celebrate your appreciation for the women who takes/took care of you. A good way to celebrate your thanks is Gifts,loving words,and/or emotions.A mom is a women parent who takes care of her child/children. My mom is Christie Lynn Brooks! We have shared many times together. But the best times are the exciting/fun times. Like when we went to six flags! We had a lot of fun although the only roller coaster i went on was the mine train . Some other things we do together are Swimming,Talking, Playing around,and more!I love my mom!!She is very important and precious to me!!!My mom is all mine.Key words MY MOM!Thank you mommy for everything. It means a lot to me! I love you , happy Mother's Day.                                                                                                                                                              Pooter
Me and my girls
And now for Sierrah's thoughts...  
What Mother's Day means to me is to take one day and celebrate the women who have taken care of us. To let them have one day off from cooking and cleaning etc. To show our appreciation and love for our mothers. To show how much they mean to us. Without them we wouldn't be here and we wouldn't be the people we are now without them. They help us get through our troubles and our fears. They also help us get through the parts of life when we start changing. They teach us right from wrong and teach us which one to use in certain situations. they will be there for you no matter what you do. Just show your mom a little love on Mothers Day.I am thankful I had Christie there to take care of me because without her I probably wouldn't be alive right now. Even though she didn't give birth to me she will always be my mom. I love you Christie. Happy Mothers Day. 

To every mom out there thank you. Thank you for being the backbone of your family, for taking the time to kiss the boo boo's away, for the cuddles after a scary dream, for giving even when you feel like there is nothing left to give. Thank you to the mothers who made the decision to allow someone else to raise your angel, without you I know my life wouldn't be the same. To the mommas of the furry babies thank you for giving your furry babies a loving home.

Peace, Love and Cupcakes


  1. Awwwww Cupcake you made me cry again. I love all the pictures. You and your mom are beautiful, amazing women and you are raising two amazing daughters.

  2. What a beautiful post! I know that I am very late commenting on it, but it really made me feel all warm inside :)

    I had a very turbulent relationship with my mum when I was growing up. I said and did some horrible things, but not once did she turn her back on me. I'm now 28 and we have a wonderful relationship. She is one of my best friends, and I know that she will never judge me, no matter what scrapes I get in to.

    I can only hope that when I have children of my own, I can show them the same love, tolerance and understanding that my mum showed me.

    Mums do the most amazing job in the world.

  3. @Jessie Thank you so much for reading this post. Your never late to the party here :o) I think most of us have said and done things to our parents at some point that we regret. I know I sure have. I am so glad to here that you and your mum have a beautiful relationship now. I think a mothers love is one of the most beautiful things.
