“A mother is not a person to lean on but a person to make leaning unnecessary.”– Dorthy Canfield Fisher
One thing I am more grateful for than anything else on this Earth is my mom. She is the person I can tell anything to and never have to worry about her passing judgement. She has always been my number one supporter and done anything necessary to ensure I have been taken care of. I am a strong believer that blood doesn’t define people as family, love does. I am adopted and words can not express how thankful I am that I was united with the family I am now a part of. I wasn’t the easiest teenager and I still have my occasional not so good days, but my momma has always accepted me and welcomed me with open arms. Without her love and guidence, there is no telling where I may be today. I love you mommy, thank you for loving me the past 26 years!

As you may know, Mother’s Day is coming up! This Sunday, we celebrate the hard work of moms. A celebration that dates back to the ancient Egyptians, this is a day in which we should make it our priority to put our mother’s first just as they have our whole lives. Whether your mother, aunt, grandmother, or friend raised you, make it a point to do something to make that motherly role model in your life feel special.
One thing we used to do in elementary school was Muffins for Moms. Below is simple recipe for banana muffins I found on http://allrecipes.com you could use to make that special lady’s day a little bit brighter!
BANANA MUFFINS II
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat muffin pans with non-stick spray, or use paper liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
- Combine bananas, sugar, egg, and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until smooth. Scoop into muffin pans.
- Bake in preheated oven. Bake mini muffins for 10 to 15 minutes, and large muffins for 25 to 30 minutes. Muffins will spring back when lightly tapped.
