Ranch MoMs are my Hero’s!
|My Mom and I after my adoption was finalized.
She was amazing.
I miss her every day!
Happy Mother’s Day in Heaven, Mom!
|Being a Mom is the most rewarding
job that I have.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, I decided to write a little about us, Ranch Moms!
Please note: This blog is dedicated not only to ranch moms but to all moms. I am pretty sure that we can all relate.
Ranch moms are special and hard working.
We have Dirt under nails. Yep, it is true! We don’t have time to go town to get our nails done.
No shower for a day or two. I hate to admit it but it is TRUE!
We have cleaned up more than our fair share of dog puke, kid puke, cat puke, urine, manure and blood. Clorox is a wonderful invention.
We don’t have time to put cucumbers on our eyes at night. Our only worry is making sure that we get a little rest.
We are tough, I mean we can carry 50 pounds plus around. Taking care of our animals requires a lot of lifting. Most of the time it is 50 pound feed sacks.
We share! We share our clothes, our personal space, our time and our love.
We know about life and death. New life and death happens on a ranch. New life is amazing and death makes us appreciate life.
We know how to shoot a gun. One of my first life lessons from my Mom was how to shoot.
We find interesting things in the washer. From staples to rocks, and other unidentifiable objects!!
We pray a lot. Amen.
We have calloused hands. Working in the weather makes leather hands.
We have scars. We are proud of them, each one of them has a story.
We shop in bulk. We never know when we will get to town, so buying bulk is a must.
We have tender hearts. Tender hearts are important to maintain care of our families, land, and animals.
We may, or may not, use shirt tails to wipe snot!
We have many job titles. Banker, loan officer, secretary, maid, teacher, bus driver, therapist, barber, vet, coach, truck driver, President and many others.
|Being a Ranch Mom isn’t an easy job, but it’s definitely the best
job anyone could ever ask for.
There are many things that I love and appreciate about ranch moms, they are amazing, loving, strong, happy, selfless and graceful! Moms are the sunshine in life!
