mother's day2

“An excellent woman [one who is spiritual, capable, intelligent, and virtuous], who is he who can find her?
Her value is more precious than jewels and her worth is far above rubies or pearls.” Proverbs 31:10

You are precious, needed, and valued!

Just think about all the things you have to juggle for your kids from day to day! Feed hungry babies, wipe up spills, exercise patience, calm squabbles, clean, cook, organize, get the laundry washed and put away, doctor’s appointments, school activities, baseball, football, soccer games, plan celebrations and holidays, decorate for parties and seasons, bake cookies for school events, buy and wrap presents, hugs, kisses, storytime, grocery shop, clothes shop, fix boo-boo’s and owies, bring encouragement, pray, comfort hearts and wipe tears, make happy memories, play games together, care for them when they get sick in the middle of the night, change diapers, bathe the little ones so they’re fresh, clean and smelling sweet, tuck them into bed with prayers at night, get out the door to go to church with hair combed and shoes on, tell them you love them to the moon and back, sit, listen and look into their eyes and savor their sweetness…and a million other things! As a mother of four kids, all of whom have grown into amazing adults, I know what I’m talking about…been there, done that, got the T-shirt. Lol!DSC09330I know that there are people out there who think taking care of your home and family isn’t a job. Nor do they think it’s important. But, Abraham Lincoln himself said, “The strength of a nation lies in the homes of its people.”.  He also said “All that I am or ever hope to be I owe to my angel Mother”. Well,  I’m not going to argue with good old Abe! A great nation does begin with a good and loving home. If you’re doing it right, it’s hard work. The future adults that we are raising are going to either be a benefit or a detriment to society.  That’s how important our job is. Mother Teresa said “What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family!”.  Amen Sistah!


So from me to you, dear Sugar Pie Mama, know that YOU are highly valuable and vitally needed! Keep up the good hard work! When you begin to grow weary remind yourself that the good seeds you are sowing will, in due season, become a bountiful harvest. And might I add, I’m not talking about being the “perfect” mother or keeping a “perfect” home. No way! I’m talking about doing what you can to the best of your ability to love and care for your family. That’s my message here at Sugar Pie Farmhouse!

May you have a Blessed and Happy Mother’s Day!

You are loved dear ones

and so very precious!

Aunt Ruthie
