{May 12, 2013}   Spotlight Sunday for May 12th, 2013:Mothers/Day 12 of Reading Challenge

spotlightWelcome to my Spotlight Sunday! Every Sunday I put someONE or someTHING I love IN the Spotlight!

Anyone is welcome to use the idea on their own blog and spotlight whoever or whatever THEY choose, but if you do, please use my lovely graphic that my friend made somewhere in your post to show that the idea came from here! And I would love it if you left the link in my comments, so I could go check out what YOU spotlighted!

Today is Mother’s Day, so what else would I spotlight but Mothers! First and foremost, Happy Mother’s Day to all Mothers out there!

Good Mothers, like the one I was blessed with, are completely selfless and put their children before themselves, most of the time with no gratitude whatsoever. I never remember my mom calling in sick for her motherly duties and letting me fend for myself as a child. Often, when she was sick herself, she would fight through the sickness to make sure I was still taken care of. A mother cooks, cleans, watches the children, helps them with their homework, gives counsel, nurses them, teaches them, etc. She is the ultimate super human that does anything and everything she is needed to do, never has enough breaks, and even on this one day of the year, she STILL is a Mom. A Mom is a Mom when her kid is a year old and a Mom is a Mom still when her kid is 31. Once a Mom, always a Mom. A Mom’s job is never done. Nevertheless, how often does a kid or the spouse recognize all she does for them? On Mother’s Day, maybe…..but few and far between besides. Yet a Mother keeps on being a Mom even as she hardly gets the appreciation.

I’m not a Mother yet, but I have a strong desire to be one. On this day, I reflect back on the job my Mother did in raising me and I’m so proud of her and all she has done for me and WILL do for me in the future. I impatiently await the day where I will get to join the ranks of wonderful Moms, like my own, and have the chance to try to be anywhere near as great of a Mother as she was to me. I’ve known the love of a great Mother….now I want to know the love of BEING one.

To all my friends who no longer have their mother in their lives, my heart aches for you and I can’t imagine what you are feeling on this day. I pray that you are able to cherish the memories you DID have with your mother and if you’re a mother yourself, that your own Mom is living on somehow through you as a Mother. Be as great of a Mom you can be to your kids while you are blessed with them so that one day, should you no longer be there, your children will be able to celebrate who you were. You too are in my thoughts today and I’m sending out hugs to all of you!

Day 12-A book you used to love but don’t anymore

As a pre-teen and teen, I used to be a huge fan of R.L. Stine books. You may or may not remember this author but he did the “Goosebumps” books in the 90’s. I didn’t like the “Goosebumps” ones as much but I loved the other teen ones. They were horror books meant for a teenage crowd, so not TOO gory and no naughty stuff. They were relatively mild, but as a Horror lover, I loved them and used to read them religiously. As I got older, I lost interest in them and moved on to more adult horror authors, such as Stephen King…and once I found Stephen King and Dean Koontz, among some others, R.L. Stine just didn’t interest me anymore. I just grew out of loving his books, although I do like some Young Adult authors to this day.
