The world will try to mold you... but
be determined to be the woman that GOD
desires for you to be!
Mom's are all so different.
They show they care in many ways
and most of those ways we shy away
from or ignore especially in our teen years.
They too were once experiencing life as a teen and often are trying to spare you from making many of the mistakes they made.
I know that I would never desire my 3 grown children to have gone through what I did growing up in an abusive home.
Sure, we think that our parents don't know much, and don't understand. Most youth feel this way. Then in our 20's and 30's we realize that they are not ignorant and dumb. At that point it may be too late to go back and erase the words and actions that have taken place between us. Don't let that happen to you. Take time to talk. They to not want to dictate your life, just help you understand life.
There is a reason God tells us to honor our father's and mother's...in my case, I now understand why my parents had such a hard time dealing with me. They just did not know how to love me, for they each came from a dysfunctional home and were never shown genuine love from their parents. I wish I could now tell my mother, "I understand, you just did not know how to love."
Tell you mother how much you love her this Mother's Day and talk.
