What do you love most about motherhood? 160 characters or less The best thing about being a mom for me is seeing my daughter living a happy, healthy, and prosperous life; and knowing that I had a little something to do with that. Seeing her on the national stage is so great, but as a mom, I never take the little things or quality time for granted.

What do you love most about motherhood? 160 characters or less  Motherhood is the hardest, yet most rewarding job I will ever enJOY. There is absolutely nothing like it…my heart(s) living outside my body, and the privilege to receive their love & light daily is everything. I love me some them!

What do you love most about motherhood? 160 characters or less Being a mother is a special gift; it’s a gift that you should treat with tender care. I have reared my son and daughter to always give their best, treat others well, be humble and trust God. My daughter and I have a special bond. I life my life through her and am extremely proud of her. As a young mother, I always knew she had a special gift- and today through her success- she is just that- SPECIAL.
