Dishing it with Amanda!!!


Amanda, over at Serenity NOW, is having a party today...and I"m linking up to it!! 

She's asking us to tell a little bit about our mammas...........you know us Southerners always talk about momma and em......well, that's just what Amanda is asking us to do.  So without further adieu, I will tell you a little about her.
~What's the best thing about your mom?  My mamma loved to laugh and have fun.  She's no longer living, so I also consider my mother in law as a very influential person in my life, so I will answer about her, too.  My mil loves to laugh, too and she is oh. so. generous and treats me just like one of her girls!

~If your mom isn't around, do you have a family member or mentor who can stand in for her?  Yes, as I've mentioned, my mother in law have a great relationship....she's not my mamma, but she is a great stand in!

~What's your relationship with your mom like (do you just tolerate each other, or is she your best confidant)?  While my mom was living, we really weren't really THAT close, so I am very glad God gave me my mother in law!
~If there is one quality about your mom that you could emulate, what would it be?  I immediately think of my mother in law, and I have learned so much from her....one big lesson I've learned is to say "yes" to my children as often as possible, and to not mind being interrupted to do something for someone else.
~What's the best advice your mom has ever given you?  Not sure......

I don't have any pictures or any instances that I remember of something embarrasing my mother made me wear.....

~If you're a mom, what's your favorite thing about motherhood? What's the most difficult?  One very rewarding thing about motherhood is seeing my children growing up to be GREAT kids/adults....and to see them following God.  The most difficult is remembering to treat them like adults and also having my oldest son and daughter in law (and coming grandbaby) live far away.  I wish they were nearer to us!


Go over and see what else/who else is playing along with the Dish on Amanda's blog!  It's a great party!!


Thanks Amanda!!

I have a wonderful Mother. She just turned 86. My Mother is a great cook and she loves to make sweets. I guess that is where I got my love of sweets. She is also a very dedicated letter writer and sends cards almost every day to friends/family. They each get a handwritten note. My Mother is a bit shy. She loves her children and grandchildren and would do anything for us. Mom is very generous. Love & blessings from NC!

Hey there! :) This came up on my Dashboard, but I didn't see it on my link list, so I added it. I hope that's okay! :)

I think it's GREAT that you have a wonderful MIL. It might be fun to do a MIL party for Dishing It! sometime, but it might turn nasty for some. :s

I loved reading about what you've learned since becoming a mom. Thanks so much for sharing. :)

We'll have to come up with creative ways to get your son and family closer....a Grand cannot be seperated from her Grandbabes, no matter what. We have a little time, so lets get to brainstorming....maybe something subliminal, LOL.

How sweet to include your MIL as your mom. I have a great MIL too. I'm so thankful for her and for the way she raised my Hubby!
