Life is a chaotic and wonderful roller coaster of choices made on a daily basis . . . sometimes moment-to-moment, to do the next right thing. How do I continue this enormously happy momentum? It can be the scariest feeling when the desires of your heart are being fulfilled. It is in the littlest things that often make the biggest difference over time. I am choosing to live the life I imagined. This journey may have started off bumpy, but I don’t mind riding the waves!
Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, Marilyn Hunt! She is an amazing woman who raised three feisty children and is the proud grandmother to thirteen grandchildren and a beautiful great granddaughter. I have watched my mother work hard over the years to provide for our family while sacrificing her own needs. She is my rock, my quiet place, and one of the few people who loves me unconditionally.
My mom also lives daily health and wellness. When I visit her, she is the first to join in with my PiYo or TurboFire moves. She consistently looks for better choices in her nutrition and creates low sugar meals for my dad who is diabetic. She participates in community fitness activities like water aerobics and walks with her friends. She even enjoys Shakeology with my dad. She never gives up on being her best and healthiest.
I remember when my mom was in her thirties and forties, and I did not know just how precious those moments were that we shared laughing and talking about family, life, and love. She is in her seventies now, and I am tucking away every meaningful moment I get to spend with my beautiful mother. I am grateful for the gift of knowing her and in many ways becoming her. Happy Mother’s Day!
