My Mother: my inspiration

I felt like blogging about my mother tonight. I think it’s because I’ve been laid up for a little while from a small accident. It makes me miss her more than I normally do. My mother never fails to inspire me. She is the most creative woman I’ve ever known. She’s a visual artist and has worked with many different mediums. She owns a boutique in Lake St. Louis called Cinderella’s Coach that sells evening wear for women and party dresses for little girls. She paints, sculpts, sews, collages, writes, has the greenest thumb imaginable, and is an amazing cook. She can clean a room, any room, no matter what it’s state in under 30 minutes. She can come up to visit me and make a 3 course meal out of whatever random thing I still have left in my cupboard. She calls herself a gypsy cook. 🙂 She makes everything beautiful and everything good. She laughs insanely loud at things that nobody else thinks is funny. She is so full of life. Her cellphone goes off during movies, plays, church, anywhere really and she doesn’t know how to turn it off. Her favorite thing is to read the bible before anyone gets up WITH her morning cup of coffee. She has so many talents and gifts, but the greatest one has always been her being our mom.

    Thanks for that. Sounds like a modern Proverbs 31 woman in action–lots of action! As a mom myself, I think it’s wonderful she’s inspiring to you!
