Thankful Thursday

I think it is only fitting that I feature my mom Millicent Davis this week.

I have truly been blessed with the best mom is the world. I know many children claim that title for their mom, but to me there is just no comparison.  I am so thankful for my mom I just don’t know where to begin. What stands out most about my mom to me is her determination, strength and kind-hearted nature.

My mom has had the ability since I was a baby to see me as I am and also as who I would become.  She never dwelled on what I did wrong, but instead she focused how I should learn and grow from my mistakes. She has taught me to trust in God above all things, and to never let my belief and faith in God wither away.  She has helped become a good mom, by being a great mom to me.

I really don’t think I can write a post that can capture the essence of how thankful I am for my mom, but I am blessed beyond measure to not only be able to call my mom “mom” but also be able to call her best friend.

Love you mom!! Happy Mother’s Day!!

This Thursday I decided to feature my coffee maker Mr. Coffee.

I am thankful for my Mr. Coffee coffee maker because it has gotten me through many sleepless nights and tired mornings after the twins were born.  The funny thing is that we’ve had this coffee maker for a few years and the first time we used it was after we had kids. The coffee maker was given to us as a gift because someone thought my husband and I were coffee drinkers. The fact is we were social coffee drinkers, we only drank coffee in public never at home.  After my first sleepless night I awoke from a 30 minute power nap to coffee brewing.  My mom who was staying with us to help out with the twins knew just what two delusional and exhausted parents needed to get through the day….Coffee.

Here’s to you Mr. Coffee (*raising coffee mug*) thanks for brewing coffee in less than 5 minutes so I can get through my seemingly endless day.

This week I decided to feature my brother Eugene Davis.

I am thankful for my brother, but to be completely honest I didn’t want a brother I wanted a sister. My parents made me wait 11yrs for a sibling and I felt I was entitled for that sibling to be the gender of my choice.

When I found out I was going to have a brother it took some time for me to come to terms with it, but when I was 18 and my brother was seven he won me over through the art of persuasion.

One day my brother wanted me to take him and his friends some where and of course me being the older sister that I was I didn’t want to. He then told me how I was the best sister in the world and that he would buy me something with his allowance and believe it or not that is all it took.  I was hooked by his art of persuasion and ever since then I’ve made it a point to try to live up to the title he gave me when he was seven “best sister in the world”.

I am thankful for my brother…thankful that he was able to break down the tough facade I put up as a tween/teenager.  If he didn’t I would never have been able to see first hand how he grew up to be a sweet, kind-hearted, generous young man.

My brother turns 21 on the 24th.

Happy Birthday Eugene!!
