Hello Fellow Tea Sippers!
Since today is Mother’s Day, I decided to dedicate this tea time to all of the hardworking mothers out there today. Today’s brew is over motherly love. So, sit back, relax, and grab a cup of tea with me. 🙂
A woman is a human being that has been overlooked and underrated since the beginning of time. A woman’s stereotype has been to cook, clean, bear children, and raise & nurture those children to be the best that they can be in life. But women are much more than these factors, and they are also much more than just physical appearance. We are beings who have emotions, intelligence, and strength. In the recent decades, women are climbing up the ladder to success. We have women that prove the public wrong by becoming breadwinners, CEO’s, going to college, working in career fields that are dominated by males, also on top of their home lives. Most women are mothers who come home from their job and take on the role of a mother, a wife, and caretakers. Mothers are our backbones, our lifelines, our best friends, our supporters, and our disciplinarians. Overall, we tend to forget to thank out mothers for all the work that they do for us on a daily basis. As offspring, we have developed this mindset that mothers are expected to watch after us and take care of our basic needs and that there is no need for thanks. Through Christ, mothers grant us life and that is something that we should automatically give praises and be thankful for. A mother’s love will forever be unconditional. A mother will forgive you when you’ve wronged her in any way. When mothers age, they become more fragile and precious. They carry wisdom, life lessons, and stories that will be cherished forever. A mother’s love is a love like no other and we should take each May of every year to emphasize all of the things that she has done to let us shine. We should take every Mother’s Day to praise her for everything that she has done in her life and in our lives.
The lovely woman above is my mother, Sherrye Alston. This lady is my rock. You all do not know this, but I am adopted. I was adopted at 16 by her and my father. My mother means everything to me. If anything ever happened to her, I might fall to pieces. She is main one that keeps a level head when I feel overwhelmed, sad, or upset. She praises my victories and is by my side in my loses. She really is an angel from the Heavens. She manages to accomplish six to eight things in one day and still finds some time for her children. She’s the sweetest woman you will ever meet. This photo was taken in Baybrook Mall after we just got our Starbucks drinks. As you can see, she was not in the selfie-taking mood because she was ready to guzzle the drink down to nothing. My mom loves coffee, small animals, and loves to garden. She is so extraordinary. If I sat here and typed every single thing about her, I would be here for a week. You guys will just have to encounter this woman. She’s beautiful in every way.
And that goes for all mothers. You all are beautiful in every way. Thank you for everything that you do.
And that’s the tea.
