Monday Moments - So much more than lunch!

I've been thinking a lot about motherhood lately. What an amazing and important job it is. How grateful I am for the gift of motherhood. How deeply I want to be a good mother. How thankful I am for the amazing mother I have...

When I was in the 5th grade I had two best friends, Leigh-Ann and Katie. One day we got into a terrible fight and they were both really mad at me. For the life of me, I can't remember what the fight was about, but needless to say I was very sad. I didn't want to go to school the next day because I wouldn't have anyone to sit by at lunch. I told my mom and asked her if I could stay home from school, but of course she said no. She kissed me good bye and told me everything would be ok. When the lunch bell rang and our class lined up to head to the lunchroom, I was really anxious. I would have to sit all by myself.

But as we rounded the courner to the lunchroom, there stood my mom. She came to eat lunch with me that day and taught me that no matter what friends come in and out of my life, she would always be my very best friend! She has never let me down.
