I know this is a religious picture, and although I missed talking about Jesus on Easter, we are going to talk about mothers. So sit down if you are Jewish, Muslim, Agnostic, Atheist, shhhhh, you all have a Mom.
I have had a special blessing in my life, I have always had the example of strong women set in my life. Much of my character, strength, and personality (and they will blame that one on my Dad) came from my mother. She always held an incredible amount of faith no matter what the circumstance, and never gave up. I have a Grandmother who is now in Heaven, who was the strongest women I have ever known in my life. She was a champion. No matter what trouble I got into, no matter what I had done, or what age or condition she saw me in, she looked at me with love, pure and simple love. I have talked about the strength and kind of man my Grandfather Andy has been, but she was always there bolstering him up, making it happen and unconditionally supporting him. I have 3 Aunts, Jayme, Dian, and Gail, and among raising families and volunteering much of their time, they like just about every post I post on Facebook, they always have the time to send a message, or drop a card, and I know were I to simply ask, all three would be at my door tomorrow. I have had the pleasure of raising a daughter, and I know she will be the best mom a woman can be, she is an example of strength and virtue, she is as bad ass as any of my sons, and although every dad wants a boy, she is pretty cool too.
Now lets get right down to it. When I think of a woman that means everything in my life, I think of my wife Jeanette. I can honestly say, without her NOTHING would be possible that I have accomplished in my life. She was there at the very beginning of my career in the Navy, and when I was out doing what I did, on several continents, she was always home, caring for my children, and preparing for a soft place to land when it was all over. I remember when we had to sneak her on the plane to Italy and she flew 24 hours when she was 8 months pregnant. I remember when she had 3 babies in diapers I was asked to leave for a couple months to go with the Marine Corps FAST teams, all while she was in a foreign country raising babies. She never complained once, and always had a home for me to dream of coming home too. When I got hurt and went through "The Dark Times" she was there, she bolstered me up, she made me fit to work, she spent mornings and evenings and every time in between encouraging and supporting me. When I was ready and didn't know it, she put me in school, and then supported me through my Masters degree, which definitely would not have been possible without her, and all the while she was homeschooling, working, and working on getting her own Masters degree. When I had the hairbrained idea to get my FFL and open a gunstore, she was there, helping with paperwork, processing shipments, she is the one who has built my current showroom, and developed and cultivated most of what is Haynes and Sons Guns today, all with the plan to support my children through college. She continues to take on new challenges, including taking a position as a Designated Crisis Responder, one of the most challenging jobs in the mental health field, and within the month she will have completed her training for designation. She works 10 and 11 hour days, and still comes home to listen to our children when they need someone, she always see's me off to my graveyard shift, and wakes when I return home. No matter how sick or injured she has become, she will always make time for her family. She recently found herself in the ER for the day and they thought she had a mini stroke, I was wrecked with fear, she stayed strong and resolute, and was only worried if I had eaten, or did I need to go home and get sleep. She NEVER thinks of herself first, only of others. She has been a blessing in my life for going on 28 years, and I know without a shadow of doubt that I would be no where close to where I am without her.
I posted a picture above this because we often think about mothers, but how often do we think of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Jesus was, a perfect man. But who do you think raised him with the values and teachings that made this mere man a savior, I guaranty it was his mother. Who do you think always had a meal for him and his disciples when they went out and preached to the world? Who was it that saw her son hated for this, who watched him beaten and tortured, who watched him hung on a cross? I know that Jesus suffered more than any man, and that he did it for us, but lets not forget who suffered watching this all happen to her little boy, who brought the body down off the cross and buried him, and who rejoiced when he rose again. I guaranty there was no anguish greater than a mother watching that happen to her son, and no greater joy has been experienced more than watching him rise again.
Please, call your mom, embrace your wife, tell them how much they mean to you, and celebrate this, their day of celebration. Thank you Jeanette and all the strong women in my life for making me the man I am today.
